The $150 + $20 + $50 6-Max Bounty tournament attracted 175 players who started with 25,000 chips and played through 20 minute levels while trying to knock each other out and collect a $50 bounty each time they scored a knockout. There was a guaranteed prize pool of $15,000, however, with the extra large field, the prize pool swelled to $25,200.
Play was action packed all night long and throughout the room you could hear the dealers on the different tables continuously announcing “all in.”
When play was down to just three tables, there was literally an all in every hand along with an elimination. All of the sudden, before you could blink an eye, the seven handed final table was formed.
Upon reaching the final table, the players requested the ICM chop numbers. After watching how fast the last 10 eliminations took place, the players figured that it might be in their best interest to chop. Once the players received the ICM payout numbers, they quickly agreed to the chop. Due to exceptional circumstances, the tournament director allowed this event to “chop and stop.”
Here are the final table payouts according to the ICM calculator and each of the player’s chip stacks:
|First Name | Prénom||Last Name | Nom||Stack | Tapis||Payout | Bourse|
Eddie Daldalian, the longtime tournament chip leader, controlled the largest stack in play at the time of the deal to become the 6-Max Bounty champion. Congratulations!
$150 + $20 + $50 6-Max Bounty Champion: Eddie Daldalian, $3,490
