Shane Warne Super Stack Series - Side Event Results
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!

Event 4: $150 No Limit Hold’em saw 211 players form a $25,320 prizepool with Anthony Quattrone topping the field to collect $3,800 for his efforts. Event 5: $200 No Limit Hold’em was the penultimate side event of the series and it attracted 205 entrants to form a $33,825 prizepool with Alexander Elks pocketing the $7,700 first prize.
The final side event was a big one with 61 players taking a seat in the Event 6: $1,100 Six-Handed which saw the top seven players guaranteed a piece of the $61,000 prizepool. Maryann Farrugia reached her second final table of the series (Event 3), but it would be Roberto Rotatori defeating Dale Marsland heads-up to capture the $21,350 first prize.
