What To Expect From the WPT Pro Hunt Event
Last year’s WPT Pro Hunt was a $33 buy-in PKO tournament with a $30,000 guaranteed prize pool. We knew the event would be well-received but never expected 1,788 players to buy in before late registration slammed shut. The bumper crowd resulted in a $53,640 prize pool, plus more than $6,000 worth of added prizes in the form of bounties and a Main Event seat.
Brazilian Douglas Souza is the reigning WPT Pro Hunt champion, having triumphed in last year’s event, doing so while streaming live on our Brazilian Twitch channel!
Souza defeated Ukraine’s Ihor Mochalov heads-up when his pocket fives won a coinflip against ace-queen. The champion took home $3,285 from the main prize pool, $2,463 worth of bounties, and a $5,300 seat in the Main Event. It could be you enjoying similar rewards this time around.
