Posted at 19:40 2013-11-30 by Tim Duckworth

The Shane Warne Super Stack Series returned to Crown Melbourne from November 24th to December 1st with seven events on the schedule including the marquee event of the $300 Main Event Accumulator. Offering affordable events across the eight-day schedule, the series was centered on No Limit Hold’em tournaments albeit an Omaha variant in Event 2.

The Event 1: $150 Opening Event – No Limit Hold’em attracted 339 players and a prizepool of $38,985 with the top 30 players reaching the money. When the dust settled, it would be Crown regular Billy Seri topping the field to capture the $10,061 first prize.

Event 2: $250 No Limit Hold’em / Pot Limit Omaha would see just 83 players take a seat to form a $17,430 prizepool, and it would be another Crown veteran Steve Topakas capturing his fourth major title after pocketing $4,530. Many fellow Crown regulars sent through “congrats” and “he’s back” messages on Crown’s Facebook page as it had been over two years since Topakas registered a tournament result. Hopefully it’s the beginning of a new wave of “Big Show” victories!
