  • Venue: Enjoy Resort & Casino in Punta del Este, Uruguay
  • Event: $25,500 Super High Roller
  • Schedule: February 10 to 11, 2020
  • Entries: 35
James Romero defeated Marty Mathis in a heads-up match, and the latter took home $213,750. Mathis, who won last year's partypoker MILLIONS South America Main Event, has now won a total of $1.1 million from these two events.

Fifteen players survived on to Day 2 at the poker room of Enjoy Resort & Casino in Punta del Este, Uruguay. Rainer Kempe, Niall Farrell, and team partypoker pros Dzmitry Urbanovich and Joao Simao were among them, but all four failed to reach the top five paying spots. Farrell unfortunately was the bubble boy, who fell in 6th place.

Heads Up - Final Hand
The chip lead position went back and forth a few times before Romero finally stepped up and finished the event for just over an hour. The final hand saw Romero open to 1,600,000 and Mathis three-bet all-in for 7,875,000.

You have to be very satisfied when you make a million and 100 k dollars from two games with big buy in. The list of players is not visible here but i think good names from this poker industry have participated. Congratulations to the 5 players which ended in money.

The games are of several types and with different buy-ins. Buy a car for 10,000 euros or buy one for 300,000. The same thing with poker. There are differences everywhere in this world and it is important to be one of those who succeed in life.

It is a high roller event of course, but the prize money for the first prize you cant say it was a good one, if you take in mind the buy in.
Risking too much in my opinion just to chase that first place.
But if you can afford this buy in, then i think you wouldnt care much losing it Smile

when you have such a big buy in,you cant expect big number of players,but on other hand with less players you will spend less time on game and you will take big amount for short time,then to play with buy in of 1000 and to have 300 players or more!so thats why this games are great for high rollers!

I don´t understand to you CALICUL, why you said that this tourney had several types and different buy-in, was this kind of tournament that you have to play different games in the same tourney? And why you wrote about a one million prize? There was something in the news that I didn´t saw? By the way, I couldn´t visit the tournament Sad
 CALICUL20/02/2020 17:57:50 GMT
I said several types of games because here was a series with different buy-in. Some great with which you could buy a car for 10 k or 300k. This tournament was very big. Something like Sunday million because the total prizes were 840 k. He could very easily reach that amount but the satellites were not made in time...
