The $3.4 million guaranteed Monster Series ended on November 4th and it was a day to remember for Russia’s Batraz “batraztigiev” Tigiev because he managed to take full advantage of the Monster Value promotion.
Monster Value was a promotion that saw us add more than $9,000 worth of MILLONS Online tickets to the prize pool of the Monster #66-H: $200K Gtd [8-Max, PKO] event. In short, everyone who finished in positions second-through-eighth won a $530 MILLIONS Online satellite ticket in addition to their prize money and bounty payments, with the eventual champion walking away with a $5,300 MILLIONS Online seat.
Tigiev Sets His Sights on Victory
Tigiev, a former football journalist, has been playing poker for 11 years and was one of 5,955 entrants in the $200,000 guarantee event. After sailing into the top 792 places where the prize money was awarded, Tigiev set his sights on taking down the entire tournament.
“Since the middle part of the tournament I was looking at top two places and wanted to get it,” said Tigiev.
It was “CPessagno” who busted in ninth-place to set the final table, which had the added value of MILLIONS Online tickets.
“Checkkk” fell in eighth-place and was joined on the sidelines by “Leviscarlos”, “BRENT_DARBY”, “coserhan10”, “nsmirnov” and “macaboca” the latter’s exit leaving only Tigiev and “IneedRunnAA” in the tournament.
A Massive Prize for a $33 Buy-in
The heads-up battle saw Tigiev claim his 16th bounty of the evening when he sent IneedRunnAA to the rail in second-place. This meant Tigiev walked away with $6,194.73 worth of bounty payments in addition to the $15,463.70 first-place prize, for a combined score of $21,658.43 plus a $5,300 seat to the $20 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online!
“I was very happy and woke up my wife in the morning after I took the first place,” said Tigiev, “This money came at the time we can really use it. My wife is expecting a baby any day now.”
Amazingly, Tigiev initially didn’t realise he was playing for a MILLIONS Online seat but after checking the partypoker LIVE site soon realised that he would now be playing for a share of a guaranteed $20 million and have the chance to become one of four partypoker players who will become millionaires in this event.
“I didn’t even realize I was playing for MILLIONS Online ticket. After I won I opened PP LIVE group in Telegram and I saw the post about the bonus. Now I have to figure out what day I should start, because I would like to play with satellite winners. I guess 1A should be the best one to start. Really looking forward to the biggest tournament of my life.”
Preparing for the MILLIONS Online
Tigiev now has a fantastic opportunity to get his hands on some life-changing cash in the MILLIONS Online event that runs from November 25th to December 5th. It was promotions such as this Monster Value and the MILLIONS Online that reignited Tigiev’s love for online poker and that saw him return to partypoker after a hiatus from the game.
“I had a break, but I got back to play, when partypoker made a big move online. It was impossible not to hear about all the big promotions and giveaways they had for the players, so that was my motivation to come back. It was about 18-months ago and now it is the only place I am playing.”
