The final week of Poker Masters Online has a $25,000 No Limit Hold’em event on each day and last night saw the biggest prize pool yet with 77 total entries and nearly $2 million to play for. Jorryt van Hoof held the chip lead deep in this event but eventually bubbled after which it was Pauli Ayras going on a tear at the final table. The Finn beat Sam Greenwood heads up and lay claim to more than half a million dollars and enough points to grab a commanding Championship lead.

The second event of the night had a faster structure and Van Hoof, after bubbling the earlier event, grabbed some valuable points to put himself in fourth on the overall standings with eight total cashes. David Peters, after finishing third in the $25k, finished second in this one to Steve O’Dwyer. With their results tonight, O’Dwyer (12th) and Sam Greenwood (11th) are now one win away from being at or near the top of the overall standings.
