Congratulations to "spinach_kale" Winner of Event #5: $10,000 GTD PKO Bounty


Another action-packed Progressive Bounty tournament is in the books in the partypoker US Network PKO Series, and today the champion is "spinach_kale." For his win, he earned $2,256.10 along with $962.14 in bounties for a total first-place prize of $3,218.24.

To clinch the win, "spinach_kale" had to defeat stand-up comedian and poker aficionado Clayton “claytonfletcher” Fletcher in heads-up play.

4Alex “JinYang” Butcher$739.20$164.06$903.26

The two players who would eventually get heads up started the final table as the two chip leaders, and the duo would maintain their status as big stacks throughout.

Fletcher caught an early knockout at the final table, when he flopped a club flush against "RyDee" after they had gotten it all in preflop both holding ace-ten.

Next, it was "spinach_kale" who would get lucky after hitting the river to knock "Jinxy" out in sixth place.

It would go back to Fletcher for the next two eliminations. First, he would take out "TheTerminator1" in fifth Place, and then busted Alex "JinYang" Butcher in fourth.

Anthony “Flawlissbinkage” Maio would bust in third place, and it looked like there would be a lengthy heads-up battle, with both players rather deep. However, a preflop cooler of sorts would develop, with Fletcher holding pocket kings while "spinach_kale" had ace-ten. Fletcher was in the lead, but an ace came right on the flop, and just like that, the tournament was over!

The Progressive Bounty tournaments continues tomorrow (Friday, July 31) with another $10,000 Guaranteed Event. Just like today, the buy-in is $109, and the action kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET. See you guys then!

Clayton "claytonfletcher" Fletcher Eliminated in 2nd Place ($1432.20 + $287.10 in Bounties)

Clayton Fletcher
Clayton Fletcher

Blinds: 10,000/20,000

Clayton "claytonfletcher" Fletcher raised to 40,000, and "spinach_kale" released to 148,000. Fletcher had no plans to back down, putting out another raise to 280,000.

"spinach_kale" moved all in, and Fletcher beat him into the pot with {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. He was in great shape to double into the chip lead, as "spinach_kale" had {a-Spades}{10-Spades}. but that would all change after the flop came down {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{7-Clubs}.

Fletcher would need a miracle to survive now, and the {7-Diamonds} turn and {8-Spades} river provided no such miracles. Fletcher will take home over $1,700 for his efforts tonight, but the first place prize of $2,256.10, along with $962.14 in bounties, will be going home with "spinach_kale."

Stay tuned for a full recap to be posted shortly.

Anthony “Flawlessbinkage” Maio: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

Blinds: 7,000/14,000

After a raise from chip leader Clayton "claytonfletcher" Fletcher, Alex “JinYang” Butcher moved all in for his final 320,000 or so.

A king came right on the flop, and Butcher was drawing dead by the turn.

This leaves us three handed, with Fletcher still holding a big lead.

"TheTerminator1" Eliminated in 5th Place ($569.80 + $12.50 in Bounties)


Blinds: 6,000/12,000

"TheTerminator1" kicked off the action with a raise to 24,000, and it folded to Clayton "claytonfletcher" Fletcher in the big blind. He would three bet to 88,000, and "TheTerminator1" called.

The flop came down {k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, and Fletcher continued for 72,000. "TheTerminator1" called, and the {10-Hearts} hit the turn. This time, Fletcher went for it all, shoving for the 174,000 that "TheTerminator1" had behind. He would think for a bit before calling with {j-Spades}{10-Spades} for second pair.

However, he was in rough shape against the {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} of Fletcher, and "TheTerminator1" would not improve on the river.

"Jinxy" Eliminated in 6th Place ($462)


Blinds: 6,000/12,000

After a raise from "spinach_kale" on the button, "Jinxy" would move all in from the small blind. "spinach_kale" called to put him at risk with {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, but he was well behind the {a-Spades}{10-Spades} of "Jinxy."

The flop of {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} kept "Jinxy" in the lead, as did the {k-Diamonds} turn. However, the {5-Spades} spiked on the river, sending the pot, and the bounty, over to "spinach_kale", who is now up to $325 on his bounty.
