Nick “caecilius” Petrangelo took down the $2,100 buy-in PokerStars Sunday High Roller for another trophy on his mantle. But that sure wasn't the only online tournament this weekend that had the railbirds on the edge of their seats.
Sunday is now known as Super Sunday at partypoker with several large events taking place, including the Super Sunday Big Bounty Hunter events. This week was even bigger for partypoker players because the site added almost $2 million to its guarantees as an apology for the connectivity problems on the final day of the KO Series a couple of weeks ago.
Super Sunday Big Bounty Hunter-H: $1M Gtd PKO attracted 4,540 entries, which left partypoker nursing a $92,000 overlay. Several members of Team partypoker progressed to the money places, including the current Global Poker Index Female Player of the Year Kristen “Krissyb24” Bicknell and former tennis legend Boris “Boris__Becker” Becker.
Everyone at the eight-handed final table was guaranteed $5,181 plus any bounty money they had collected on the way, but the show belonged to the “arrowhead76” who eliminated 14 players on his way to victory, including runner-up Damien “UveBeenStakt” Wain, to get his hands on $83,729 and an additional $34,036 in bounty payments.
