Day 5 of the $2.7 million Monster Series saw another 15 champions crowned and another $275,756 in prize money paid out despite the tournaments’ buy-ins ranging between $0.44 and a still affordable $33.
All of the Monster Series tournaments are excellent value thanks to their low buy-ins and big guarantees. One event in particular, however, stands out from the crowd: the $100,000 guaranteed at 19:00 CET.
This tournament only costs $33 to enter yet has a six-figure prize pool. Every day so far, there has been at least $20,000 added to the prize pool to ensure the guarantee is hit; that’s like playing a tournament where 600 or so players have bought in but then don’t show up to play! You really do need to get involved in this excellent event. One runs on May 4, another on May 5 before it is replaced with a whopping $300,000 guaranteed event on May 6.

Monster Series Day 5 Highlights
Monster #23-High: $100K Gtd
- Buy-in: $33
- Entries: 2,639
- Prize pool: $100,000
- ITM: 344
Some 2,639 entries were processed in the Monster #23-High: $100K Gtd event and it was nearly one of our own who emerged victorious. Team partypoker’s Padraig “PadraigParky” Parkinson was going great guns until he fell in 16th place for a $600 score.
This sum increased to $1,020 for anyone reaching the final table and is the cash that “Trytopayonriver” collected when they bust in eighth-place.
A deal was struck when the tournament was down to its final two players. “myp1ague” officially finished as the runner-up, but not before locking up $13,745 for their effort. “Kevlar91” was the event’s champion, a result worth $13,851 after the aforementioned deal.

- ITM: 280
A field of 2,060 entries ensured the $50,000 guarantee of the Monster #22-High: $50K Gtd was beaten by $573, which meant six of the eight players who reached the final table locked up more than $1,200 each for their $27 investment.
“SEVA_BLR” bust in sixth-place for $1,233 while “llPKll” walked away with a $1,792 score for their fifth-place finish. “Cihan6161” added $2,553 to their partypoker bankroll when their tournament ended in fourth-place, with “NevilleWeeee” taking home $3,843 for their third-place finish.
