partypoker players were treated to a different tournament format in the latest round of WPT World Online Championship events with us running the WPT 7-Max Weekender. Most tournaments play out six or eight-max, so seven-max added a twist to proceedings.
The tournaments were well-received and a massive $1.6 million was paid out across the three buy-in levels: $2,100, $215 and $22. Here is how the final tables of the trio of 7-Max Weekenders went down.
WPT 7-Max Weekender $1M Gtd Final Table Results
The $2,100 buy-in WPT 7-Max Weekender attracted some of the biggest names in the industry. Fifty-seven spots were paid and the likes of Jack Sinclair, Manig Loeser, Chris Hunichen, Mike Watson, Niall Farrell, and Tom Hall all saw a return on their investment.
Denmark’s Sebastian Larsen was the player who crashed out in eighth-place to set the final table. The Dane collected $19,848.
Brazilian grinder Franciso Pinho Correia was the first player to bust from the final table. His seventh-place exit secured a $24,731 payday. Germany’s Leon Sturm busted before the reigning MILLIONS Online champion Benjamin Chalot saw his tournament end in a fifth-place finish worth $43,029.
Four-handed play ended with Dutchman Joesphus Van Den Bijgaart crashed out and got his hands on $62,774. Hungary’s Norbert Szecsi, a regular in partypoker high stakes tournaments, ran out of steam in third, banked $91,132 and sent this event into the heads-up stage.
The final battle pitted Eder Campana of Brazil against Canadian star Guillaume Nolet. Both players were guaranteed a six-figure prize, but there was more than $55,000 difference between first and second-place, plus those vital leaderboard points for the WPT Player of the Championship.
Campana got his hands on Nolet’s stack and, therefore, the monster-sized $186,839 top prize. Nolet can’t be too disappointed about falling at the final hurdle because the Canadian walked away with $131,168 to show for his efforts.

WPT 7-Max Weekender Mini $500K Gtd Final Table Results
Estonia’s Aleksejs Ponakovs excels in high stake online poker tournaments so it was no real surprise to see his name at the top of the $215 7-Max Weekender Mini payout list. Ponakovs got his hands on the lion’s share of the $500,000 prize pool, namely $80,278.
Plenty of familiar faces put together deep runs in this event, but couldn’t quite reach the final table. Jean-Pascal Savard, winner of the $2,100 edition Eder Campana, David Yan, and Ben Farrell all came close to tasting victory.
All but one of the finalists saw their bankrolls swell by five-figures, seventh-place finisher Marcin Mroz banking $8,968. From there, Victor Pertile, Vitalii Pankov, and Bruno Bernadino busted, the latter’s demise in fourth netting him $24,463.
Laszlo Molnar was the penultimate elimination. He scooped $36,340 from his home in Hungary.
Molnar’s exit left Federico Oscar Janices of Argentina facing Ponakovs for the title and the juicy top prize. Ponakovs got the job done, as he so often does, and Janices had to make do with the $54,197 consolation prize, still not bad for a couple of days on the grind.
|2||Federico Oscar Janices||Argentina||$54,197|
|7||Marcin Mroz||United Kingdom||$8,968|
