Monster Series Day 6 Highlights
Monster #26-High: $25K Gtd PKO
- Buy-in: $22
- Entries: 1,404
- Prize pool: $128,080

“eGhosT_” walked away with $4,195 for theit $22 investment thanks to coming out on top of a 1,404-strong field in the Monster #26-High: $25K Gtd PKO event. The prize pool weighed in at $28,080 and this was shared among the top 184 finishers.
Everyone at the final table was guaranteed at least $169 in prize money, but all of the players had sent at least one opponent to the sidelines so had a bounty on their heads.

Monster #27-High: $50K Gtd PKO
- Buy-in: $27.50
- Entries: 2,007
- Prize pool: $50,000
- ITM: 280
Another big winner was “Pro4on” who topped a field of 2,007 entries in the Monster #27-High: $50K Gtd PKO. “Pro4on” found themselves heads-up against “TiltWish” and with the cash still available to be won being so substantial, the pair struck a deal to split the remaining prize pool.
Pro4on banked $3,832 and $1,980 in bounty payments, while TiltWish secured a $3,392 payout and $1,413 in bounties.
