Anatoly "Pohitrusha" Suvarov Wins Event #57 for $183,526

Anatoly Suvorov

It was a grueling 14 and a half hour day in Event #57: $150 GGMasters WSOP Edition, but Anatoly "Pohitrusha" Suvarov has emerged victorious. He battled his way through the massive field of 9,835 runners only to end up in a heads-up battle with David "Duvidl18" Edelstein that went on for over an hour.

Not only is this Suvarov's first bracelet, but it also eclipses his biggest ever live score, which came in 2011 during the Merit Fall Open, Kyrenia. In fact, this win for $183,526 is more than his entire lifetime live earnings, which sit at $178,947. His most recent live cash was for 44th place in $1,015 No Limit Hold'em - Main Event (Event #1) at WSOP International Circuit - WSOPC Russia, Sochi in 2019.

The Day's Action

Action kicked off at 1 p.m. Eastern time Sunday on Event #57: $150 GGMasters WSOP Edition, and action was heavy during the registration period. There were no rebuys in this pure freezeout event, but the nearly 10,000 entries in the field by the time the 3 hour registration window closed was a solid argument for the popularity of freezeout poker.

They ended with $1,357,230 in the prize pool to be divided 1,232 ways, and it didn't take them long to get there. It took just 90 minutes to play down to the money spots and another 90 minutes again to get down to 400 remaining. Another two hours of play saw the field dwindle to under 100 players, and along the way some big name players like GGPoker Ambassador Daniel Negreanu, Francesco "beninonline" Candelari, Galen Hall, Davidi Kitai, and Jorge "bemjogadogg" Abreu busted out for small cash outs.

They just kept falling, and about two and a half hours later the final table was set. William "OveyGG" Overmire was a quick first casualty but then they played 45 more minutes before Andre "grohnaldo" Grohnert fell in 8th. Canadian Adam "4bbVirtuoso" Cader went out in 7th in the following level, and then they played more than an hour before three quick eliminations saw Hector "mendekua" Caldero, Jean-Francois "Jhope514" Alexandre, and Amine "Barbe-N0ire" Hamza fall to the rail.

They played three-handed for about half an hour before Norwegian Tom "Matrix1973" Hoseth busted in 3rd when Suvarov rivered a flush. That set up the heads up battle that went on for more than an hour. Both players had the lead at various times during the final phase, and both players were at risk with their stacks in the middle at least once. It finally ended in a race situation with Edelstein holding the over cards and missing, giving the pot and the bracelet to Suvarov's tens.
