Niklas Astedt won WPT Omaha Second Chance at PartyPoker
Swedish poker pro and one of the best online MTT players, Niklas Astedt, has been achieving good results in large tournament series of late.
A few days ago, he nearly won a WSOP Online 2020 bracelet in a $1 500 tournament with a prize pool of $1 313 850 that took place on the GG Network (GGPoker, Natural8, GGpokerok). The player only managed to become a runner-up of this event and earned $156 900.
Even though Nicklas received pretty big prize money that day, he decided not to stop there, and already on July 28 emerged victorious in the $1 575 WPT Omaha Second Chance at PartyPoker.

The WPT Omaha Second Chance event with $100 000 GTD collected 61 entries, but it was not enough to beat the guarantee, so there was an $8 500 overlay.
As a winner, Niklas "Lena900" Astedt received $31 200 for first place. Norwegian player Andreas Torbergsen turned out to be a runner-up, taking a prize of $21 700.
Given the small number of entries, only nine poker players could get enter the ITM zone. The minimum payout amounted to $3 850.
