$1,050 Sunday High Roller Main Event Details
Let’s start with the smaller buy-in event at GGPoker. This tournament had over 700 players competing which pushed the $600,000 prize pool guarantee over the $700,000 mark. After defeating the field, Marco Fontanella was able to earn just over $110,000 for his efforts.
Each of the nine final table members would earn a payout and once the event was down to two, it was Fontanella taking on Andriy Lyubovetskiy for the win. It would take some time, but Fontanella was able to earn the final hand to secure the victory.

For the next online poker event, a total of 33 players paid $25,500 to compete in the Super High Roller event. This created a prize pool of $825,000. Only the top four players would be paid, so it was a stiff competition until the very end.
