Chess Grandmaster Ottomar Ladva Bags Another Huge Win For $446,446 07 Apr

The 2021 GG Spring Festival on GGNetwork (Betkings, GGPoker, Natural8, 2bet4win) is well underway and first big paydays are coming through.

Ottomar Ladva has won H-16: $25,500 Super High Rollers after a heads up deal. Ladva made it through 85 total entries to heads up play, where he and second place finisher Marius Gierse made a deal to chop the big share of the $2.125 million prize pool. Ladva took home $446,446 and Gierse $435,790.

Ladva came to the world's attention through the game of chess, where he achieved the Grandmaster rank. Recently, he's been showing the poker world what he can do. In February of this year he turned $530 into $525k payday, when he beat Justin Bonomo heads up in partypoker's MILLION$ Super High Roller. With results like these, he is slowly becoming the best chess-poker crossover player (if not already there).
