“sezon1th” & “kiskutya23” Bag Five-Figure Scores in 888poker KO Games
The KO Games on 888poker got under on Sunday and has crowned its first batch of winners. The series is dominated by Mystery Bounty events, which have made an absolute splash on the platform.
Take a look to see who has pulled the big mystery bounty prizes along with some selected event winners.
“sezon1th” Binks Opening KO Games Mystery Bounty
The first event of the KO Games was the $109 Mystery Bounty which attracted 1,261 entries. Those players generated a $126,100 prize pool, with the top 180 players securing the $132 min-cash. The biggest mystery bounty up for grabs was worth $12,000 and the lucky player to receive that was “fratla”.
“Drakaries” bowed out in tenth place which then set up the livestreamed final table.
“agvolpee” was the first final table casualty after they moved all in for 8 big blinds with king-jack. Mexico’s “55luckbox777” woke up with pocket tens and jammed their bigger stack to isolate the all-in player. The runout was seven-high and 55luckbox777’s pair remained the best hand.
“ValueBluff” was the next player depart after ripping in their 25 big blind stack with a pair of nines following an open from “ZockSteffen”. “Arcuiro” reshoved from the small blind with pocket kings and “ZackSteffen” got out of the way. No nine appeared on the virtual felt and the tournament was reduced to its final seven players.
Arcurio then downed “Blackjk84” after both players were all-in preflop. Arcurio rivered top pair to win the hand after his opponent made a pair of sevens on the flop. “SYO.00” then committed his short stack with queen-four but ran into the pocket nines of sezon1th and was unable to improve as the board ran out.
Arcurio then made it hat-trick of knockouts after leaving 55luckbox777 on fumes with pocket aces. He then finished off his opponent after his king-queen got their against ace-nine. Coincidentally, all the mystery bounties so far had been all for minimum $57.
ZockSteffen brought the final table to three-handed play after his ace-king remained ahead of the ace-seven held by “Light_Yagami”. Shortly after ZockSteffen shipped in his stack with queen-ten but fell to sezon1th’s ace-queen.
sezon1th had the slight chip lead heading into heads-up play, with Arcuiro looking to end a run of second-place finishes. The Brazilian player had finished second in three of his last four final table appearances as pointed out by commentator David Tuchman.
The final two players would battle for around an hour, with the chip lead changing back on forth, but on the final hand of the night, sezon1th walked away as the champion as their ace-queen paired up on the flop to move ahead of Arcuiro’s pocket threes and held out to secure the tournament win.
