Big money tournaments are currently running rampant in the online poker realm. GGPoker’s High Rollers Week (Nov. 8-15) is currently in the midst of a 20-event series offering $20 million guaranteed across the festival.

High Rollers Week wraps up this weekend, running concurrently with big tournaments offered in the PokerStars EPT Online series and partypoker Caribbean Poker Party Online.

The first four days of High Rollers Week produced big paydays and fields full of some of poker’s biggest names. The biggest prize awarded so far went to Kyle Menard, who took down Event #2: High Rollers Week $10,300 Super MILLION$ for a $628,892 payday.

The Super MILLION$ wrapped up Tuesday, while plenty of other big payouts have been awarded this week as well at GGPoker. Here’s a look at some of the highlights from High Rollers Week so far:

Event #7: $10,300 NLHE High Roller

The $1.25 million guaranteed $10,300 NLHE High Roller played to its conclusion Wednesday, with a loaded final table featuring tournament legends like Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Sami Kelopuro, Issac Haxton, and Dan Smith, just to name a few. The real-names aspect of GGPoker’s tournament series produces some of the most compelling online action on the modern poker landscape.

Stevens didn’t win the championship but came away with almost equal prize money to Stuer. Other top finishers included Kenneth ‘rebuyguy’ Smaron (3rd – $175,470), who went into three-handed play as the short stack and bowed on at the hands of Stuer in third place.

Smith (4th – $134,119), Mark Radoja (5th – $102,275), and Haxton (6th – $78,680) took the next three spots on the money ladder. Daniel Dvoress (7th – $60,264), Kelopuro (8th – $46,158) and Grospellier (9th – $35,354) rounded out the final table finishers.
