Monster #19-High: $50K Gtd PKO
- Buy-in: $22
- Entrants: 2,056
- Prize pool: $50,000
“EUSKO88” was the biggest winner on Monster Series Day 3 after the Chilean topped a field of 2,056-entrants in the Monster #19-High: $50K Gtd PKO to get their hands on a prize worth a combined $6,097. The Chile-based grinder won $3,580 for finishing in first-place plus an additional $2,517 worth of bounty payments, impressive stuff for a $22 buy-in tournament.
Second-place went to “milaconpure” who narrowly missed out on glory. What they didn’t miss out on, however, was a chunky prize worth $3,574 for finishing as the runner-up and another $497 from the bounty prize pool.
Shout-out to “karagkiozis” of Greece who netted $660 worth of bounties, more than any other player in the field with the exception of our champion.
Monster #17-Mid: $10K Gtd Slow 8-Max
- Buy-in: $5.50
- Entrants: 2,020
- Prize pool: $10,100
One of the biggest “Mid” buy-in tournaments on Monster Series Day 3 was the Monster #17-Mid: $10K Gtd Slow 8-Max event that attracted a field of 2,020 players who created a $10,100 prize pool.
All eight finalists secured a three figure score, with the top two finishers banking more than $1,100 each.
Another Chilean, “othersideofmoon” couldn’t quite follow in EUSKO88’s footsteps in becoming a Monster Series champion. Instead, they had to make do with a silver medal, a finish worth $1,188.
Othersideofmoon’s exit meant Bulgaria’s “bizzzIT365” was the last player standing in the $5.50 buy-in event, thus becoming the tournament’s champion, an accolade that came with a cool $1,687.
Monster #17-Low: $5K Gtd Slow 8-Max
- Buy-in: $2.20
- Entrants: 2,043
- Prize pool: $5,000
The Monster #17-Low: $5K Gtd Slow 8-Max event ended in a heads-up chop that saw the final duo share almost $1,500 between them for their $2.20 investment.
All but two of the 2,043-strong field had been eliminated leaving “madlen69” of Poland and the Belarusian known as “Traf1991” to lock horns heads-up for the title. This final pair of players decided to end the tournament earlier than anticipated by striking a deal for the remaining prize pool. madlen69 is now credited with finishing second and they received $684 while Traf1991 was announced as the champion and walked away with $738 for their effort.

No Rake on the Bounty Element of PKO Events
Our PKO tournaments have been extremely popular since their launch thanks in part to the bounties being bigger due to partypoker not charging rake on the bounty element of the buy-in.
For example, in the Monster #59-High: $200K Gtd Championship Event PKO on Sunday 17th March, the total buy-in is $55. Of this sum, $27.50 goes into the bounty prize pool, $25 goes into the regular prize pool and only the rake is only $2.50 in total. The rake in this particular tournament is only 4.55 percent.
