“Diogo37” goes down in the poker history books as the Monster Series’ biggest winner after they won the Monster #38-High: $300K Gtd Championship Event. A fantastic turnout of 8,100 players bought in for $30+$3 and while this left a $57,000 overlay, none of the 1,048 players who navigated their way to the money places were bothered as it meant their prizes were more substantial.
A min-cash was worth $81, a final table appearance paid $2,709 but Diogo37 walked away with a bankroll-boosting $45,375 after coming out on top. Diogo37 defeated “El_Magico” heads-up to secure the title, leaving El_Magico to collect $31,749.
Two other players banked five-figures scores: third-place “I_Felt_U” won $20,343 and “LaMinera” locked up $13,206 for finishing fourth.

“Omariojunior” turned $27 into $15,900 by winning the Monster #37-High: $100K Gtd. A brilliant turnout of 4,210 players meant the $100,000 guarantee was surpassed by $3,355 and omariojunior took full advantage of the chunky prize pool.
Everyone at the eight-handed final table locked up at least $992 with the final two players guaranteed a five-figure addition to their bankrolls. The first player to scoop five-figures was “pow1970”, the tournament’s runner-up. Pow1970 is now $11,100 richer for their $27 investment while omariojunior can brag of a $15,900 score.

The final six players of the eight-handed final table won a prize weighing in at four-figures. “Oi-oi-oi” was the sixth-place finisher for $1,317 with “RichHomieDwan” banking $1,926 for finishing fifth.
$2,772 is now nestled in the partypoker account of “moneyymakerrPP” with “DONALDTEMER” winning $4,170 for their third-place finish. Heads-up saw “Johnny_PL” fall in second-place, a finish worth $6,445, which meant “getmechips” got the lion’s share of the prize pool namely $9,118,
