We’re two full days into the latest installment of the Turbo Series. Here’s the latest rundown of winners, KO and ROI info, and everything else you might want to know about the action from Day 2.


Title wins for Anderson, Ventura

Day 2 saw wins for a couple of familiar players.

Calvin “cal42688” Anderson was last seen around these parts winning two SCOOP titles in a single weekend to boost his career total of major PokerStars tournament titles to something like 400. Yesterday he earned his latest title in Event #11 ($55 NL Hold’em, 8-Max), conquering a field of more than 3,000 players.

Another tournament, another title for Calvin Anderson

Diego “Die Ventura” Ventura, the 2015 PCA Main Event runner-up and Peru’s all-time leading money winner, took the honors in Event #9 ($109 NL Hold’em, Progressive KO, 6-Max, Win The Button). After making a heads-up deal he earned just over $50,000 including bounties.

KO count

Day 1’s top KO collector, FrCnnctn1960, is still third in number of bounties per event played. (China’s 5692262 and Switzerland’s asdren40, who collected 16 and 15 bounties, respectively, in a single tournament, remain the leaders in average.)

The new leader in total knockouts is Romania’s Vlad “dariepoker” Darie. The Romanian pro has now collected 24 bounties across 10 entries. That gives us 20 players who have collected at least 15 bounties during the Turbo Series so far.

Turbo Series ROI-alty

Two of the great stories of Day 2 of this Turbo Series came in the form of satellite winners who won their events.

Chip-collecting has been good business for these players

Tops on the day was Russia’s Savva707, who won Event #7. Savva707 earned entry into this tournament by winning a $1.10 hyper-turbo rebuy/add-on satellite on a single bullet. Winning the tournament gave Savva707 a total return on investment of 1,242,147% — that’s going to be a tough figure for anybody to beat.

Another of our Day 2 champions, Russia’s r-w patriot, was a satellite winner. r-w patriot took down Event #10 ($215 5-Card PL Omaha, 6-Max) for $18,471.45 after winning entry for just $22. That’s good for a 83,961% ROI.

Yesterday’s Event #5 champ, Golaith13 of the Netherlands, was also a satellite winner. That makes three of our 12 event winners so far who earned their entries through satellite tournaments.
