Igor Kurganov had fun this summer with his fiancee - and a colleague on PokerStars Team Pro - Liv Bori. After winning their first WSOP bracelet, they traveled the world a lot. The guys meditated on the cliffs of the Grand Canyon and in Japan
And so, after a good rest, the star couple decided to look to Barcelona at the PokerStars Championship. Igor, without a long thought, made an entrance fee of € 50,000 for a superhero's tournament and rushed ...

Roughly 70 players. That is more my understanding of a field for a poker tournament, and not the thousands that make up the WSOP main event. But that kind of buy in cleans out the ranks quite eficiently.

I think 50000 buyin is really big, not many people can pay so much money so only payers with big bankrolls can play such tournaments. Yes 70 players is not much but as we see there was more than 1 million euros to the winner, so this is big money.

For the ones that score money here, was a nice investment for all that money they put in.
For the rest Smile
The list with the winners and money has an asterisk, which indicates there was a deal.
Wonder how much the actual winnings was for first and second place.

I think this player has helped a lot by his girlfriend Liv Boeree. When you have a professional poker girlfriend near you you can learn a lot about poker. Have a three-year relationship when you can learn about the game helping each other. If he was a weaker player. I do not know what career he had before but it did something beautiful

In this high roller I will mention the impressive performance of my coterraneo Ivan Luca who finished in position 5, taking more than 430,000 euros into his pocket. This Argentine player is already a regular of this type of tournaments with high buy in and it has been doing very well with great results. Congratulations to Ivan.-

Many congratulations to Igor Kurganov on winning this high roller event and over a million in prize money. This was a truly star studded final table, so extra kudos must go out to him for winning

For a 'high roller' event the prizepool acually was not massive nor impressive at all IMO. Honestly the only interesting thing here besides the winners girlfriend is that Negreanu went home first.
