"miw210x" has become the most recent winner of a partypoker US Network Online Series Event #2: $15,000 GTD NLH Black Chip Bounty, doing so by cracking pocket aces on the final hand of the tournament to earn the first-place prize of $5,826 with $700 in bounties to go along with it.
The $320 buy-in ($305+15) event nearly doubled its guarantee, as 97 entries generated a total prize pool of $29,585. Of that total, $19,885 went to the main prize pool and the remaining $9,700 was dispersed through bounties. Registration remained open for three hours and "miw210x" was seen at or near the top of the leader board during the last levels of the late registration period. Just 18 remained when registration closed, and they were one of two players with over half a million in chips.
By the time eventual runner-up rule22 burst the bubble with a double-knockout to bring the field to 11, "miw210x" had almost 1 million in chips, and they took the chip lead into the final table of nine with a seven-figure stack a few minutes later; though e-eventual fifth-place finisher Jon “Jetsfan411” Borenstein was hot on their heels with a seven-figure stack of his own.
