Last night’s tourney was a huge declaration by us at 888poker as we head towards the upcoming Super XL Series (January 19 – 31, more info), by providing a staggering $500k GTD prize pool at a special edition Tournament - “Super Whale”.

German Player “Slaaasch” prevailed, managing to win the prestigious event after striking a deal with the former winner of both the Whale and the Baby Whale, Polish regular player, “ZDamian”.

“ZDamian” shows once again that this is where he is feeling best -- making yet another deep run and getting it to heads-up play.

Players Come Out to Support the Whale

Both players got heads-up after working their way through a tough field of 1,188 players with 531 Rebuys, creating an enormous prize pool, and surpassing the $500k GTD!

Prior to agreeing on a deal, we saw some serious action at the final table when we got down to the final 3.

After a hard-fought battle and a very close competition, the action resulted in a huge flip between 2 players. “ZDamian” and the Romanian “Alexxv14” scuffled in blind-on-blind action, ending in an All-In shove from the Pole holding 66. The Romanian quickly called holding AKo.

The board ran out dry for “Alexxv14” sending him home in 3rd place with an amazing payday of $48,991, an astounding return on his investment.

A Deal is Struck!

The two remaining players quickly agreed on a deal -

“ZDamian” – $74,090

“Slaaasch – $69,382

The two left 10k$ for the winner along with the prestige of winning the first-ever $500k GTD Super Baby Whale. Quickly after striking the deal, we saw “Zdamian” losing the majority of his stack to “Slaaasch” set of 7’s when holding top pair.

Soon after, “ZDamian” shoved 6BB holding K9. “Slaaasch” insta-called Holding A6.

The board went “Brick, Brick, Brick” crowning “Slaaasch” as our Winner and earning him an additional $10k making his overall cash out close to $80,000!
