BULGARIA’S “Ifkata” WINS THE MILLY

Six years ago, Bulgarian player “Ifkata” got a big bankroll boost by winning a MicroMillions event, turning $2 into $13K in the process. Last year it was a SCOOP win in Event #37-L, good for $26K. This weekend Ifkata kept the cycle going, winning this week’s Sunday Million.

Ifkata banked $109,996 following a three-handed deal with Croatia’s “5 banki” and Romania’s “platin32.” After stepping up with every big win, what’s next for the Bulgarian? Only time will tell.


HIGH ROLLER CLUB BOUNTY BUILDER GOES TO JERRY “Perrymejsen” Ödeen

Jerry “Perrymejsen” has been enjoying a nice run of late. The two-time Super Tuesday winner took down Event #48-H ($530 PL Omaha H/L) during this year’s SCOOP, picking up a healthy $29K score in the process. This week he kept the good vibes going with a huge win in the High Roller Club $530 Bounty Builder. Ödeen outdid his SCOOP score with the $37K regular prize alone before adding another $32K in bounties on top. That was good for a total cash of nearly $70,000, making him the weekend’s biggest HRC winner.

The second-biggest HRC score of the weekend went to another SCOOP champ, Ivan “Negriin” Luca. The winner of SCOOP-01-H topped this week’s $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $37,247, topping last week’s appearance at the very same final table. Luca beat Johannes “Greenstone25” Korsar heads-up after getting past Thomas “WushuTM” Muehloecker and Kahle “ROFLShove” Burns along the way.
