Viktor Blom’s incredible run of form in the Super High Roller Bowl Online series continued on May 28th with his second victory. The popular Swedish superstar has now won almost $990,000 in the space of three days.
Blom won the eighth SHRB event for $213,750 and then finished as the runner-up to Dan Smith in the $25,500 SHRB #9 event for an additional $365,500. Now he’s taken down a $25,500 event of his own for $407,500!
SHRB #14 – Super High Roller: $1M Gtd [8-Max, 2-Day Event]
|3||David Peters||Costa Rica||$165,000|
|4||Adrian Mateos||United Kingdom||$100,000|
Only three players made it through to Day 2 o this event from the 40 who started. The finishing positions were how the chip counts were at the start of play.
David Peters was nursing a short stack so it was no surprise to see him fall in third-place. This added $165,000 to Peters’ bankroll.
Blom and Mike Watson played one-on-one poker to decide the champion. It was, of course, Blom who emerged from the fight victorious and with his hands on the $407,500 top prize. Watson walked away with $265,000 reasons to be cheerful.

|1||David Peters||Costa Rica||$217,000|
|5||Chris Hunichen||Costa Rica||$49,000|
|8||Lucas Reeves||United Kingdom||$26,250|
David Peters may not have staged an epic comeback in the SHRB event that Blom won, but he did secure the title of the $10,300 8-Max event that completed on the same night. Peters locked up the $217,000 top prize after sending Joao Vieira to the showers in second-place; Vieira banked $150,500.
Only six players returned for Day 2. Our very own Kristen Bicknell busted in seventh-place at the end of Day 1.
Latvia’s Aleksejs Meless was the final table’s first casualty and he was joined on the sidelines by Chris Hunichen. Matthias Eibinger fell in fourth for $63,000 with Justin Bonomo collecting $98,000 for his third-place exit. Bonomo won the $25,000 Super High Roller on May 27 and scooped $622,634; he’s another player in hot form.
SHRB #15 – High Roller: $500K Gtd [8-Max, 2-Day Event]
|7||Chris Hunichen||Costa Rica||$28,500|
Canada’s Mark Radoja became an SHRB champion when he triumphed over 59-opponents in the 15th event of the series. Radoja defeated Finnish high flier Pauli Ayras heads-up to win the $10,300 buy-in tournament.
Eight players returned to the partypoker felt and they soon became seven when Timothy Adams crashed out. Chris Hunichen and Justin Bonomo’s eliminations gave Adams some company on the rail, the latter adding another $34,500 to his SHRB winnings total.
Russia Vyacheslav Buldygin’s bust out left only four players in the hunt for the title, and what a four they were.
Guillaume Nolet saw his tournament end in fourth place for $55,000. German legend Ole Schemion, playing from Austria, scooped $88,500 when he crashed out in third. This left Radoja and Ayras to butt heads and we already know how that panned out!
