Day 3 of the Monster Series saw another 21 champions crowned and $267,531 awarded to those who finished in the money. This takes the total prize money won so far to almost $1 million and we are only three days in!
Team partypoker’s Dzmitry “Dzmitry_Urbanov” Urbanovich went deep in the Monster #18-High: $5K Gtd 6-Max PLO, finishing in 11th place from 369 entrants for a $103.32 score. You may recall Urbanovich cashed five times at the recent 2018 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, all in non-hold’em events. Two of those cashes came in Omaha events so he certainly knows how to play with four hole cards!
Let’s discover who won big on Day 3 of this amazing series.
