Home » Vamos! Joao Simao Bags a GGPoker Brace During a Super Sunday


Joao Simao enjoyed a profitable tournament session at GGPoker on Sunday after taking down not one but two high stakes bounty events. Simao’s brace of victories resulted in his lifetime winnings increase by a $35,735.

Victory number one came in the $630 Super Six High Roller, where 104 players fought it out at the GGPoker virtual felt for a slice of the $75,000 prize pool. High buy-in tournaments always attract some of the world’s best players, and this event was no different; just check out the talent on show at the final table.

Niklas Astedt was the first finalist heading for the rail and he was joined in the role of spectator first by Ramiro Petrone then by China’s Guoliang “SPARK1207” Wei, Dario Sammartino, and Aleks “JutsaMortal” Dimitrov.

Fourth place went to Leon “Rumuku!us” Sturm, and heads-up was set when “takemeaway” fell in third.

Heads-up pitted Simao against Nick Maimone for the lion’s share of the prize pool. Maimone fell at the final hurdle and collected $10,250, with Simao capturing a total prize worth $15,754.

Simao got his hands on another top prize by coming out on top of a 66-strong field in the $1,050 Sunday High Rollers Heater. Again, the final table was a star-studded affair, and again Simao came out on top.

“Driekus888” and Michael Addamo‘s time at the final table was limited, and the waters grew less shark-infested with the eliminations of Zhao Zi long, Daniel “croce 61” Croce, and Chris Klodnicki.

Simao found himself heads-up against Lars “Babyccino” Nystedt after Aleksandr “[email protected]” Kirichenko crashed out in third. The hot-running Simao relieved Nystedt of his stack and banked a $199,81 top prize, leaving Nystedt to console himself with a $10,578 payout.
