Estonian grinder “DingeBrinker” came out on top of a star-studded $5,200 Titans Event online at PokerStars this weekend, and helped themselves to an impressive $84,615.
The Titans Event drew in 30 unique players, who purchased 11 re-entries between them, and created a $205,000 prize pool. The compact field meant only the top four finishers won a share of that pot, resulting in many elite players busting empty-handed. $5,200 Titans Event Final Table Results

Two British players were the first casualties of the final table. “FUWI” busted after getting their stack in with a pair of jacks, which were an overpair to the seven-high board, only to run into the flopped set of deuces in Pedro “pvigar” Garagnani .
“FUWI”‘s fellow Brit, Ben “jenbizzle” Jones then bluffed off his stack in a battle of the blinds with Finland’s “zerodada.” Jones opened from the small blind with jack-ten, and “zerodada” called with seven-five of spades. The flop fell deuce-five-six with two spades, and both players checked. The king of hearts landed on the turn, and Jones tested the waters with a third-pot-sized bet. The river was the queen of spade, and Jones made another third-pot-sized bet, which “zerodada” raised. Jones responded by jamming all-in for 35 big blinds in total, and “zerodada” called with their baby flush.
