Ivan Zufic Bags $843k In GG Poker WSOP Mini Main Event Among Week’s Latest Winners

In a normal year, the World Series of Poker would be long over by now but on GG Poker, there are still another three weeks of poker to be played. And while the biggest tournaments are still on the schedule, there have been some big winners over the last week with some of the biggest tournaments yet to come.

Big winners

Ivan Zufic was the winner of the $500 Mini Main Event on Monday, taking down his first-ever bracelet and a $843,460 first-place prize as well as a WSOP Europe Package. Play in the event lasted 16 hours with a huge turnout of 15,205 entries vying for the win. The bracelet is believed to be the first from a Croatian-born player.

Although he has numerous cashes online, his live tournament record is much more sparse with only one live cash recorded, according to The Hendon Mob.

Meanwhile, in the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event, the first of 22 starting flights (yes, 22 flights) got underway on Sunday with Samuel Vousden on top after the day’s action. Day 1b on Monday saw Xuming Qi come on top with Dan Smith in second place. Day 1c is set for Tuesday at 7 PM UTC. A total of $25 million in prizes have been guaranteed for this landmark tournament.

Other WSOP Online winners

A number of other winners have been crowned over the last few weeks, including the second WSOP bracelet from David Peters. Most recently, it was Kartik Ved, who took home the $840 Super Turbo Bounty No Limit Hold’em to win $234,433.
