Day 1 Completed
The partypoker US Network Online Series kicked off Monday evening with Event #1: $2,000 GTD NLH Red Chip Bounty. The kickoff event featured a buy-in of $20 with $5 bounties and drew a total of 231 entries, more than doubling its guaranteed prize pool as $4,158 was paid out to the field ($3,003 to the Main Prize Pool and $1,155 in Bounties).
"rumpthumper" was the one to take gold, earning $750 and amassing 10 knockouts as well as their own bounty to bring their total earnings in the tournament to $805. This was not the first bounty event that "rumpthumper" has won in a partypoker US Network Online Series, as they defeated Ryan "Whosyourdoddy" Dodd in a Black Chip Bounty Event one month ago for $6,097.
Dodd was also seen in Event #1, but his luck ran dry shortly before the three-hour registration period closed. When that time came, just four tables remained and it took less than 10 minutes for that number to plummet to 25 and bring about hand-for-hand play as the top 24 finishers were set to make it in the money. The bubble burst shortly thereafter, and it took less than an hour from there for the tournament to reach the final table of nine.

Final Table Action
"rumpthumper" entered the final table bubble in the middle of the pack, but won two consecutive all-ins to double through "Str8crazY" and then eliminate them and take the chip lead into the final table. Three eliminations came quickly, with "cenation", "Retsnom1", and "theMossberg" all earning $127 through some combination of prizes and bounties.
Two levels later, four remained and eventual runner-up "SenorAlto" had taken the chip lead. "SenorAlto" further extended their lead after eliminating "HellHound" in fourth place.
From that point on, however, it was all "rumpthumper." They eliminated "poflatland" in third place and entered heads-up play with a four-to-three deficit. Moments later, that deficit was a lead as "rumpthumper" found themselves with 60% of the chips in play. That number continued to climb until they had all the chips, doing so by way of an all-in preflop situation where their pocket eights held versus ace-seven offsuit.
The tournament took just shy of six hours to play to its completion.

In Level 31 with blinds of 35,000/70,000 and an ante of 8,750, all of the chips got in the middle preflop with "SenorAlto" at risk for their tournament life against "rumpthumper," who was in the big blind.
"SenorAlto" got their unpaired ace all in preflop and found it up against a pair of eights, leaving them with just three outs to double and stay alive. None came on the flop , and they picked up four more outs to a backdoor gutshot straight draw on the turn . Unfortunately for them, they would get no closer as the river finished the runout and thereby the tournament.
"SenorAlto" finished in second place, earning $519 plus $30 from six knockouts, while "rumpthumper" has claimed victory and the accompanying first-place prize of $750. They also knocked 10 players out of the tournament, and will receive their own bounty to make their total bounty prize $55 and bring their overall earnings from the tournament to $805. A full recap of the tournament will be provided shortly.
In Level 31 with blinds of 35,000/70,000 and an ante of 8,750, "rumpthumper" opened to 140,000 on the button and "SenorAlto" defended their big blind. The flop came and "SenorAlto" check-called a continuation-bet of 148,000 from "rumpthumper."
Both players checked the turn and the river fell . "SenorAlto" checked to "rumpthumper" once more, who fired out a bet of 297,000. "SenorAlto" wasted no time calling.
"rumpthumper" showed for third pair and received a muck from "SenorAlto," earning them the pot to take their stack over 5 million as they now have roughly 75% of the chips in play.
In Level 30 with blinds of 30,000/60,000 and an ante of 7,500, "rumpthumper" opened to 150,000 on the button and "poflatland" defended their big blind. The two players saw a flop of and "poflatland" check-raised a continuation-bet from "rumpthumper" to make it 352,000 to go.
"rumpthumper" came over the top, three-bet jamming for 1.92 million and "poflatland" called all in for less.
A pair of queens came on the turn and river to leave "poflatland" with the second-best hand, resulting in their elimination in third place to earn them $339. They also knocked out 11 players, which is the most of anybody in the tournament to add another $55 to their overall prize.
Meanwhile, the heads-up match between "SenorAlto" and "rumpthumper" began with the former holding roughly a four-to-three chip lead. However, the early moments of the match quickly saw "rumpthumper" turn the tides, amassing a stack of 4.38 million already as "SenorAlto" now has 2.54 million.
In Level 30 with blinds of 30,000/60,000 and an ante of 7,500, "SenorAlto" opened the action with a raise to 120,000 on the button and "HellHound" called in the small blind. The flop came and "HellHound" checked. "SenorAlto" made a continuation-bet of 247,500 and "HellHound" check-raised all in for 1.045 million. "SenorAlto" called.
"HellHound" got their stack in with an open-ended straight- and flush draw but was up against the top pair of "SenorAto" and needed to improve beyond it. The turn cut their number of chances in half, and the river only gave them a pair of queens, falling shy of their opponent's kings to result in their fourth-place finish in the tournament for a total of $290 ($255 in prizes plus $35 in bounties)
Four players remain with play midway through Level 30 (30,000/60,000/7,500). No pots have been played to showdown in the last few minutes of play; however, "SenorAlto" has chipped up just shy of 2.5 million and finds themselves with the chip lead. Here's a look at all four remaining players' stacks.
In Level 29 with blinds of 25,000/50,000 and an ante of 6,250, "SenorAlto" jammed for 740,000 in the cutoff and "DirtyHarry" re-jammed for 852,000. Both players in the blinds folded.
"SenorAlto" was in trouble and the flop left them behind. However, the turn tremendously increased "SenorAlto's" number of outs. One of those outs connected on the river , giving them a king-high straight to double and leave "Dirty_Harry6" with just 110,000.
"Dirty_Harry6" was able to find a double but then folded through the blinds down to 200,000 and was eliminated by "SenorAlto" just a couple of hands later in fifth place, earning $187 in prizes plus another $50 in bounties.
In Level 28 with blinds of 20,000/40,000 and an ante of 5,000, "HellHound" limped in on the button and "JMPoker" completed their small blind. Action was then on "poflatland" in the big blind, who raised their option up to 100,000 and saw both players call.
The flop fell and "JMPoker" checked. "poflatland" made a continuation-bet of 165,000 and got a fold from "HellHound." "JMPoker" then thought for a bit and check-raised all in for 439,000. "poflatland" quickly called.
"JMPoker" saw the bad news as their opponent's aces were tabled and they were in need of hitting one of the eight outs they had with their double-gutshot straight draw. They bricked on both the turn and river and were eliminated in sixth place, earning $150 for their finish with another $15 from three bounties adding to that total.
