Australia’s Michael Addamo is on a highstakes roll this week with two wins and third spot finish at the WPT Online series earning him almost $600,000 against the world’s best players

The young Melbourne pro started his run off with victory in the $5,200 High Roller Turbo, overcoming a field of 54 that included Kristen Bicknell, Steve O’Dwyer and Russian crusher Artur Martirosian.

It was Bicknell’s other half Alex Foxen – the pair newly-engaged – who provided the heads-up opposition, but Addamo on a roll is a hard man to stop and so it proved.

At the same time as taking that one down, Addamo was taking the chip lead into day two of the $10,300 High Roller, this time the likes of Mike Watson and Sergei Reixach among the contenders running deep.

Addamo couldn’t quite go back-to-back, but his third spot was worth another $116k, with Christopher Brewer bagging the win and a $250k payday.

Addamo wasn’t finished yet, putting his fine form to great use in the $25,500 Super High Roller, with Ali Imsirovic joining Martirosian, Reixach and others at the final table.

Addano came in as chip leader yet again and in less than two hours ran his stack all the way to a heads-up showdown with Martirosian, seeing off the Russian for a second win of the week.

Addamo’s live results are just as impressive as his online play, the Melbourne man having over $8million in lifetime cashes, and including two huge wins just before the lockdown disrupted live events early last year.

He scooped the Aussie Millions 50k Challenge for $741,752 in January and followed that up a couple of weeks later with a victory worth $862,311 at the Australian Poker Open 100k event.
