Niklas Astedt wins 888Millions Superstorm High Roller
One of the best MTT players in the world, Niklas "tutten7" Astedt, has been showing impressive results, playing expensive tournaments in the top poker rooms.
The $530 888Millions Superstorm High Roller at 888poker with a $100 000 guarantee was no exception, as the Swedish poker professional managed to become the champion of that tournament and earned $23 000 for the first place. The award wasn’t that big because Astedt is used to getting six and even seven-figure prize money, but it was still worth playing.
The event collected 132 entries including 33 rebuys (Niklas made 3 of them), which was not enough to break the guarantee so the $530 888Millions Superstorm faced an overlay of $12 550.
The runner-up turned out to be a poker player under the "IamBudha" nickname who received a payout of $16 000.
888poker Ambassador Sofia "sofialovgren" Lovgren also entered the ITM zone, finishing the tournament in fifth place ($6 000). Another Swedish poker player Simon "Isildur1337x" Mattsson took ninth place and won a modest $2 500 prize.
Overall, 18 poker players got in the money; the minimum payout amounted to $2 050. You can watch the pre-final part of the tournament broadcast:
