“kancy159” Victorious in PKO Battle Royale

On Monday, the PASCOOP 08-H: $100 NLHE [6-Max, Progressive KO, Battle Royale SE] cruised past its $25K GTD as 388 players created a $35,618.40 prize pool. That was split between the bounty and regular prize pools with the top 59 finishers getting a piece of the latter.

Among those to cash was “ChrundleTheGr8” (35th for $109.88 + $51.64 in bounties). It was a nice run but not nearly as good as the one they had in Event 08-L: $10 NLHE [6-Max, PKO, Battle Royale], $5K GTD when they topped a 645-entry field to in a PASCOOP title for $953.44.

Others to cash were Andrew "Bert Chrysler" DiCicco (26th for $135.77 + $258.19 in bounties), Dean "BDGEJLM" Morrow (17th for $207.29 + $172.13 in bounties), John "jshultz929" Shultz (8th for $391.04 + $200.82 in bounties), and “ImHere4TheBeer” (3rd for $1,643.31 + $830.48 in bounties).

The title came down to “kancy159” and “AshyL4rry22”, both of who locked up $2,765.40 in prize money. However, each were looking to claim the hefty $2,555.59 PKO bounty, and after nearly six and a half hours of play, it was “kancy159” coming out on top to claim a total payday of $5,320.99.
