Event #8: 420,000 GTD NLH of the partypoker US Network Online Series saw 109 entries logged to generate a total prize pool of $21,800 Wednesday night, and "NewAgedP23" claimed the lion's share of it, winning the tournament for $6,158.50.
The tournament featured a $20,000 guaranteed prize pool, which was exceeded as the night went on and several players found themselves out of chips only momentarily due to the option to re-enter as many times as they wished. Only 21 players remained when the registration period closed and that number dropped to 18 by the time the next break was reached only a handful of minutes later.
Of the 18 to remain, only 13 made it into the money. "spinach_kale" was one to bust before the bubble burst, and within an hour, play was not only in the money, but had reached the final table. "NewAgedP23" had been the chip leader when the final two tables were reached, and they had doubled their stack by the time play reached the final table. Their lead only grew as they eliminated Ted "roystalin" Ely (eighth place) and "upayformypennys" (seventh place) in quick succession.
BorgataPoker.com Sponsored Pro Katie Stone found herself among the final six, and proceeded to knock out "Bagels" in sixth place shortly before "NewAgedP23" scored another knockout, eliminating "DaCoolerKing in fifth place. Stone, however, would see her night come to an end in fourth place after she lost a coin flip with jack-ten to eventual third-place finisher "Stingray99".
When heads-up play began, "NewAged23P" had just shy of a two-to-one chip lead and never found themselves in a worse situation the rest of the match. They saw many small pots sent their way with the occasional sizeable one to go with it, and eventually had over 90% of the chips in play versus their opponent, Alex "JinYang" Butcher. The final hand saw "NewAged23P" make a nut flush with ace-five of hearts in an all-in preflop situation to beat what ended up being two pair for Butcher to secure the victory and earn $6,158.50 for their accomplishment.
