"Sucra72" began the final table of 888poker.ca's KO Games - $100,000 Mystery Bounty Main Event at the top of the leaderboard and finished it as the last player standing.

"Sucra72," who had more than $250,000 in earnings on 888poker.ca before the event, added the $10,615 first prize and $9,599 in bounties to their career total after defeating "bballjake97" heads-up.

Final Table action

Day 2 of the $250 Mystery Bounty Main Event began with 83 players remaining out of 323 who entered one of the starting flights. Half of the $100,000 guaranteed prize pool went to mystery bounties, hidden in a golden envelope hovering above each player's avatar. "AubreyGraham" was the fortunate player to pull the $10,000 top prize after knocking out "choon106" in 19th place.

"Sucra72" doubled up with turned kings full against flopped trip nines, then won a massive all-in coin flip with queens against ace-king right before the final table as they earned both a $5,000 bounty envelope and the chip lead at the start of the nine-handed final table.

"LUCKEY74" was the first bustout, turning the nut flush before "pagn0005" made a full house on the river with pocket tens. "bballjake97" then tripled up their short stack against "PesevereDrin" and "Thaker1976" with queen-jack, flopping top pair.

"averygrande" had their pocket kings cracked on the river as "pagn0005" made the nut flush, finishing in eighth place. "bballjake97" earned another double-up after hitting a pair of aces on the turn to beat the kings of "PesevereDrin." "bballjake97" moved up to 835,240, while "PesevereDrin" was left with just 91,650 after taking the bad beat and was eliminated in seventh place a few hands later.

"Sucra72" kept their chip lead before taking two big hits, first losing with ace-king to the king-four of "AubreyGraham," then having queens cracked by the deuces of "iknewiwould7."

"Thaker1976," the start-of-day chip leader who was near the top of the leaderboard for much of the final table, exited in sixth place after "bballjake97" spiked a six with ace-six to beat ace-jack. "bballjake97" also busted "iknewiwould7" in fifth with tens against ace-six that, this time, couldn't improve.

Ace-six also proved the downfall of "AubreyGraham," who got their last 211,140 in the middle against "Sucra72"'s queen-nine. "Sucra72" hit a queen on the river to win the pot and bust "AubreyGraham," who earned $4,050 for their fourth-place finish to go with the $10,000 bounty they collected earlier in the tournament.

The three remaining players waged a lengthy battle as "pagn0005" doubled up twice through "Sucra72." They then pulled virtually even after picking up two kings against pocket eights. "bballjake97" also took a turn at doubling up against "Sucra72," shoving for 403,280 with queens and beating two nines.

"pagn0005" endured a steady decline after that big double up and got their last 330,514 in the middle with two threes. "Sucra72" made two pair on the river to win the pot and eliminate "pagan0005" in third place, taking a 2,272,232 to 1,397,768 lead into heads-up.

Most heads-up pots went in the direction of the chip leader before "bballjake97" narrowed the gap, picking up eights and doubling up against two sevens. Finally, with blinds at 22,500/45,000, "bballjake97" shoved for 334,136 with jacks and "Sucra72" called with ace-deuce. "Sucra72" flopped two pair and made a full house on the turn to win the pot and the tournament.

The KO Games on 888poker.ca began on November 6 and handed out $100,000 in guaranteed prize money. "Sucra72" is now the champion of the series, the only player who didn't have their golden envelope opened up during a fast-paced, action-packed day.

That concludes PokerNews' coverage of the 888poker.ca Mystery Bounty Main Event. Stay tuned for more poker action from tournaments around the world.
