Another day, another win for Michael Addamo. Addamo took down the $25,500 Super High Roller for $363,600 in what seems an endless string of victories. Not just the Super High Roller concluded last night; there were numerous more winners. So take a sit back and read all about it.

$530 Mini Main Event ($500K GTD)

The fourth and final day of the Mini Main got underway last night, with Michiel Brummelhuis in the lead for the lion share of the $539,500 prize pool. Just nine players remained when the action got underway at 8:05 pm CEST.

Belgian grinder Kenny Hallaert started in fourth place with 73 big blinds but was the first to depart. His exit in ninth place netted him $7,169. Vlad Stefan Lache started the shortest but laddered up a spot because of Hallaert’s early departure. Lache hit the virtual rail in eighth place for $9,086.

Long-time grinder Goran Mandic was the next to go, busting in seventh for $11,461 – the first five-figure score of the event. Jakob Miegel (6th, $14,531), Josue Sauvafeau (5th, $18,808), and Maxim Mamonov (4th, $27,439) departed not much later.

Michiel Brummelhuis had a substantial lead when things got underway with 163 big blinds to start the final day, but he couldn’t turn that into a victory. The poker pro and business owner finished in third for a cash of $41,984.

The remaining two players forged a deal, chopping up most of the money and leaving $5,000 to play. Joshua Mccully ultimately finished runner-up for $71,016, while Fritjof Tortensson from Sweden took down the title and $78,769.

$25,500 Super High Roller ($1M GTD)
Sam Vousden had bubbled the event on the penultimate day, so the remaining seven players were guaranteed a min-cash of $53,915. Sergi Reixach was the second shortest stack going in and busted first. Dutchman Duco ten Haven followed Reixach out the door, exiting in sixth for $62,644.

Matthias Eibinger started the final table second in chips but finished in fifth, taking home $74,773. His countryman Pascal Hartmann crashed out in fourth for $100,993. Ali Imsirovic, like Reixach playing from Mexico, began the final table with just 18 big blinds but laddered up considerably, making it till third place for $145,662.

The heads-up was between two long-time online grinders. Artur Martirosian couldn’t overcome the phenom that is Michael Addamo and finished runner-up for $223,349. The top honors went to the aforementioned Addamo, who added another notch to his belt and $363,660 to his bankroll. There’s just no stopping him!

$1,050 6-Max Turbo ($150K GTD)
With all these multi-day events, sometimes it’s good to just have a good old-fashioned turbo one-day in there. For the $1,050 edition of the 6-Max Turbo, 146 entrants agreed with that sentiment as they signed up and vied for the top prize of $33,583.

Diego Ventura bubbled in 24th, making Charles La Boissonnière the first to cash ($2,362). Michiel Brummelhuis, who’s making a splash in the WPT Online Series so far with numerous deep runs, picked up the same amount for his 21st place.

Yuri Martins Dzivielevski, the current number one ranked player in the world, finished 18th for $2,458, adding a tiny bit to his lifetime total of almost $13 million in cashes. partypoker’s Dzmitry Urbanovich made it to place nine, missing out on the final table by a couple of spots but adding $4,303 to his bankroll.

The victory went to Mykola Kostyrko, who took home $33,583 after defeating Boris Angelov, who picked up $23,082 for his valiant efforts.

$109 Mini 6-Max Turbo ($50K GTD)
A tenth of the buy-in and one-third of the guarantee. A fair trade-off, so too thought 490 entries in the Mini 6-Max Turbo. After just five and a half hours of play, Henrique Mendes from the United Kingdom came out on top, taking home $8,838. Terrel Gaskin took $6,149 and silver, Jens Werner cashed $4,286 and took bronze.

$11 Micro 6-Max Turbo ($10K GTD)
The $11 6-Max Turbo attracted a field of 1,075 fierce players who vied for a piece of the $10,750 pie. partypoker pro Dayane Kotoviezy was one of them and made it to 18th place, good for a cash of almost $70.

Laszlo Gaszler bested all of the competition finishing up top for $1,762. Vitor Bello Gomes from Brazil finished runner-up for $1,206, while Henk Pol from the Netherlands finished third for $816.

$530 WPT500 Knockout ($1M GTD)
Yesterday, we reported on the top stacks after the first two starting days in the WPT500 Knockout. With Day 1A and 1B in the books, Manfred Hermann (11,172,645) was leading before Nich Maimone (10,899,817) and Michiel Brummelhuis (9,370,850).

Day 1C is now completed, and there’s a new sheriff in town: Markus Altkirch. While 1C attracted fewer entries (137) than 1A (208) and 1B (159), Altkirch still turned his 500,000 starting stack into an impressive 13,849,700. Altkirch’s stack was over double that of his closest opponent; Dylan Glen Rowe collected 6,192,130 on Day 1C.

There are six more starting days to go, the first one starting tonight at 9:05 pm CEST. Friday and Saturday both have another starting day, and Sunday even sees two of them on the schedule. On Monday, the last turbo flight gets underway at 6:05 pm CEST before Day 2 starts at 9:05 pm CEST that same day.

$55 Super50 Knockout ($400K GTD)
Like its bigger brother, the WPT500 Knockout, the Super50 Knockout too saw a new player take the overall lead. Eduard Lenhart turned his 500,000 into 13,930,310 in chips on Day 1C, overtaking Day 1B’s Johannes Franz (13,365,049) and Fernando Ferreira (11,609,529).

The $55 buy-in $400,000 guaranteed event follows a similar path to the WPT500 when it comes to starting days, so anyone can give it another shot again tonight at 9:05 pm CEST when Day 1D gets underway.

$5.50 Super5 Knockout ($50K GTD)
Daniel Mcnairney had a superb day on Day 1C of the Super5 Knockout last night, turning 500,000 into a staggering 12,650,320. While he multiplied his starting stack with 25, it wasn’t enough to grab the overall lead. His 12.6 million in chips lands him in third place on the current leaderboard behind Neil Christiaens (15,314,323) and Marcelo De Carvalho Evencio (14,078,169), who both performed great on Day 1A.

There’s an extensive slate of tournaments on offer again tonight, with buy-ins ranging from just $5.50 to $5.200. Mix-Max Knockouts, High Rollers, 6-Max turbo’s, and much more; here’s what you can play on partypoker tonight:
