Brazil’s Allan Mello Bags PokerStars Bounty Builder Series Victory

Brazilian star Allan “allan sheik” Mello was one of many online poker tournament players celebrating this weekend, with Mello taking down the a $1,050 buy-in freezeout that was part of the PokerStars Bounty Builder Series.

Dozens of household names, including Andras “probirs” Nemeth and Team PokerStars’ Lex “L. Veldhuis” Veldhuis found themselves in the winner’s enclosure, having triumphed in high stakes PokerStars tournaments, to give their bankrolls a serious boost.

Mello’s victory came in the Bounty Builder Series #73, a $1,050 No-Limit Hold’em 8-Max High Roller freezeout. Some 207 players bought in and created a $207,000 prize pool.

The nine-handed final table was littered with top-tier professionals, although it lost one when Andrey “Anjeyyyy” Novak bowed out early into proceedings. Finland’s “realshisjiii” and Brazilian “MatheusMocci” joined Novak on the rail before “25264556” and “AcidValue” crashed out, leaving only four players in contention for the title of champion.

Multiple $1M GTD Events Scheduled for Returning PokerStars Bounty Builder Series

MakuFz and Yan Chop the Titans Event

David Yan
David Yan finished second after a heads-up deal netted him more than $84K

The $5,200 Titans event saw 75 high-rolling PokerStars players take to the virtual felt and create a $375,000 prize pool. As you would expect, a tournament of this magnitude attracts the biggest names in the business, and nine of those elite grinders navigated their way to the nine-handed final table.

Just as he had done in the $1,050 NLHE 8-Max Freezeout Bounty Builder Series event, Andrey “Anjeyyyy” Novak busted in ninth place in this tournament. Austrian “CherryOnTop” and Brazil’s Rodrigo “seijistar” Seiji Sirichuk followed suit, before Juan “Malaka$tyle” Pardo, and “roo_400” saw their tournaments end prematurely.

“Gogac sniper” was shot down in fourth, and heads-up was set when Jans “Graftekkel” Arends busted in third. Arends’ untimely demise left David “MissOracle” Yan and “MakuFz” heads-up for the title and the lion’s share of the prize pool. The heads-up duo struck a deal that saw Yan collected $84,936, and MakuFz bank $92,090 and the title of champion.
