This high buy-in affair created some juicy bounties that were bigger than other online poker sites as we don’t charge rake on the bounty element of our PKO tournaments.
Some excellent players navigated their way to the eight-handed final table and any of them would have been a worthy champion.
“Tartaruga13” busted in eighth-place and was joined on the rail by the United Kingdom’s “slayerv1fan”, Malta’s “Paul07new” and “GewoonBoef” of the Netherlands, before the exit of flying Finn “LarzLuzak1” left the tournament three-handed.
Latvia’s “rudiqa1” busted in third-place for a combined score worth $14,454 to leave “gtcha” and Beeeetlegeuse to fight heads-up for the title. The man named after the horror classic eliminated gtcha in second-place to lock up $12,800 from the main prize pool plus a colossal $17,680 worth of bounty payments.
