Day 1 Completed
The partypoker US Network Online Series is in the books as the final tournament, Event #9 100k 8-Max Progressive Knockout Bounty completed after about 8 hours of action. 215 entries paid the $535 buy in amount to compete in a bounty event for the top prize.
The winner at the end of the day was “stevenmadara” who took home the grand prize of $10,750 and to really top it off, a whopping $13,643 in bounty winnings, which was by far and away the largest bounty haul for any player.
“stevenmadara” was spotted as one of the top chip counts with about 50 players left and had an impressive elimination run to boost his bounty count. He entered the final table as chip leader and went on to eliminate three of the final table’s seven other players.
