WSOP Super Circuit Online Series Update – Ring Event #11
11th WSOPC Gold Ring winner and huge progressive PKO bounty action
We’re 16 days into the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series, ten WSOPC Champions have already been crowned and tonight it was time for an eleventh champ to be bestowed with a WSOPC Gold Ring, courtesy of WSOPC Ring Event #11: Deepstack Bounty Hunters $500K GTD.
Played in ‘Progressive Knockout’ or ‘PKO‘, in a Bounty Hunter tournament half of the tournament buy-in goes towards the the tournament prize pool and the other half is is placed the player’s head as a bounty. When eliminating a player you pick up 50% of their bounty total and the remaining 50% is added the player’s bounty total.
As you can imagine, the action is fast and furious, especially at the latter end of the tournament, and the bounties can grow to eye-watering sums, as was the case with last night’s tournament in which the final 9 players shared an astonishing $62,000 in bounties, with he overall winner amassing a cool $25,000 in additional bounty PKO winnings.
WSOPC Ring Event #11: Deepstack Bounty Hunters $500K GTD.
A total of 3,297 players paid the $21o entry for Event #11 generating a total prize pool of just under $660,000.
In the final hand, ‘NeverGambol‘ had the slight chip advantage and was obviously very happy to call the pre-flop all-in of ‘jackwu9011123‘ with his pocket queens versus jackwu9011123’s pocket 4’s. A queen on the river added insult to injury for jackwu9011123, and NeverGambol was the WSOPC Ring Event #11: Deepstack Bounty Hunters champion and the proud new owner of a WSOPC Gold Ring – Good Game!
