Super Seiji Captures Another PokerStars Titans Title

Super Seiji Captures Another PokerStars Titans Title

Cast your mind back to November 14, 2022. PokerNews published an article detailing the PokerStars $5,200 Titans Event victory for Brazilian sensation Rodrigo "seijistar" Seiji. Seiji walked away with $93,118 that day. He then won the same tournament in July 2023 for $82,083. Fast-forward to the present and Seiji has done it again, taking down the Titans Event and padding his bankroll with $72,956 after a heads-up deal.

Sixty-one entrants created a $305,000 prize pool in this weekend's $5,200 Titans Event, an impressive turnout considering the world and its wife are currently in France for the PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) Paris festival. It seems not every superstar has descended on the French capital, judging by the talent on show in this online event.

The Titans Event's compact field meant only the top nine finishers saw a return on their $5,200 investment. This meant Goliaths of the online poker world logged off empty-handed. They included Damian "pampa27" Salas, Samuel "uropan" Vousden, Michael "imluckbox" Addamo, and the unfortunate bubble boy, Pascal "Pass_72" Lefrancois.

The finalists breathed a sigh of relief when they saw Thomas "WushuTM" Muehloecker bust in ninth, a finish good for $9,508. Muehloecker has been one of the most consistent tournament grinders live and online for several years, so having a player of his caliber on the sidelines is welcomed by anyone facing him.

Christian "WATnlos" Rudolph and David "MissOracle" Yan were the next high-profile casualties relieved of their stacks. Those two superstars walked away with $10,886 and $14,534, respectively.

Sixth place went to Jonathan "Proudflop" Proudfoot, a player who was formerly the number-one-ranked online poker tournament player in the United Kingdom. Proudfoot's latest deep run rewarded him with $19,405, which takes his online winnings past $11.3 million.

Andras "probirs" Nemeth saw his Titans Event end prematurely in fifth place, a finish worth $25,908 to the Hungarian grinder. Estonia's "ULOSEMFKR!!" joined the ever-growing list of busted players when they ran out of steam in fourth ($34,590), with the tournament progressing to heads-up when Canada's "dujo123" was eliminated in third ($46,182).

A near-$19,000 was the difference between first and second place, and neither Seiji nor "drew.derzh" seemed overly keen to battle over such an amount. They agreed upon a deal that removed almost $10,000 from first and given to the runner-up. "drew.derzh" was the official second-place finisher; they scooped $71,025. Seiji got his hands on $72,956 and another Titans Event title.
