At GGPoker, Astedt was one of 697 players that competed in the WSOPC Series: $1,050 Sunday HR Main Event. The top 98 finishers received cash prizes, including Dario Sammartino, Nick Petrangelo, Chris Moorman, Alex Foxen, and Ole Schemion.
Each of the players had secured at least $12,753 for their efforts by the time the nine-handed final table was established. Andreas Christoforou of Cyprus was paid this amount after he finished ninth.
Between $16,670 and $28,480 was collected by Leonard “LottoLarry” Maue, Lachezar “Psychadelica” Petkov, and “77Storm77.” Then followed Sergei Denisov’s elimination in fifth place, a finish worth $37,225.
“Kingmave9111” took fourth place and $48,657 before “callplx” was evicted in third place and took home $63,598.
Astedt faced another Swede, Simon Mattsson, in a head-to-head match. Astedt won the war between “Lena900” and “C. Darwin 2,” as the two are more widely known, and he began 2022 with a win and $108,655 in winnings. Mattsson took home $83,128 for his bridesmaid victory.
A total of 48 submissions were processed, resulting in a prize fund of $1,200,000. Only the top five finishers get a piece of the pie, so pray for David Coleman, who was knocked out of sixth place. Coleman blew the bubble, netting the surviving players $123,788.
Timothy Adams finished sixth for the aforementioned reward before Wiktor Malinowski dusted up his stack and took home $165,075.
The last elimination was Brazil’s “bill2021,” who took home $220,131 and put Andras Nemeth up against Timothy Nuter of Canada. With his win, Nemeth increased his bankroll to $293,549 for the year 2022. The biggest prize was a Super High Roller worth $25,500. When he fought Nemeth one-on-one for $391,454, he more than quadrupled that award. In late August 2021, Nuter finished ninth in a $25,500 Super High Roller and earned $151,504.
Isaac Haxton had a terrific day on January 2, 2022, when he won not one, but two GGPoker events. After a heads-up deal with GGPoker Ambassador Jason Koon ($80,208), Haxton won the WSOPC Series: $5,250 Deepstack Sunday HR for $74,216, after winning the WSOPC Series: $1,050 Sunday Kick-Off HR for $33,665.
