Juan Dominguez

December 26 is the first day after Christmas, and it’s usually spent with family, eating leftovers from the Christmas day, and having fun. Some people, however, combined fun with work, such as the players who took part in the World Series of Poker Super Circuit Series: $25,500 Sunday Million Super HR.

One of them was Juan Dominguez, who managed to top the event and land a massive prize. The Spaniard managed to beat a 57-player-strong field and land a total of $431,319.

The World Series of Poker Super Circuit Series is a series of events of online poker that is operated by the World Series of Poker, which also concluded recently and attracted thousands of players from all over the world.

The Final Table Overview

Only the top six players had an opportunity to win a slice of the prize pool, which was $1,425,000. The player who burst the bubble was Stephen Chidwick, one of the most popular poker players in the world. Unfortunately, he was out of luck this time and left the tournament empty-handed.

As soon as he left the game, the minimum cash that was reserved for the next player who would hit the rail was $102,281. That player happened to be Timothy Adams from Canada. He was soon joined by Lev Gottlieb, who uses the online moniker “LevMeAlone.” The player, who was waving from Mexico, managed to win a total of $136,395 as the fifth-placed player.

The next player from the final table to leave the game was Anatoly Filatov, who logged in from UAE. The Russian poker player is currently ranked 8th in Russia’s all-time money list and 252nd on the world’s all-time money list.

Anatoly Filatov also took part in many other WSOP online events this year and even ended fourth at WSOP $25,000 Super High Roller Championship Online, where he landed a total of $555,720. This time, he repeated the success, as he hit the rail in the fourth position, earning a total of $181,885 for his effort.

The last player to hit the rail before the head’s up used the nickname “spaise411” and was waving from Russia. They won a total of $242,548 for their effort.

Final Duel

Finally, Juan Dominguez had to face another player who decided not to reveal their real name. They used the nickname “Jerome001” and had a Chinese flag next to them. Nevertheless, they lost the heads-up duel and had to settle for second place and the consolation prize of $323,443.

This concluded another great online event that was part of the World Series of Poker Super Circuit Series, and it was definitely a nice little Christmas gift for the Spanish poker player. Moreover, it’s safe to say that other players who made it to the final table also had a reason to celebrate, especially because they could have been resting and decided to focus on poker instead.
