“Batraztigiev” has plenty of reasons to celebrate today because he took down the $200K Gtd 8-Max PKO Monster Series event, which not only netted him a massive score, but also a ticket to the MILLIONS Online worth $5,300.
This event was selected for the Monster Value promotion which meant the champion bagged a $5,300 MILLIONS Online seat while those finishing in positions second through eighth secured a $530 MILLIONS Online satellite ticket.
“Checkkk” was the first player to net an extra prize, falling in eighth-place. They were joined on the outside looking in by “Leviscarlos”, “BRENT_DARBY”, “coserhan10”, “nsmirinov” and “macaboca.”
That last elimination left batraztigiev and “IneedRunnAA” to play heads-up for the title. The prize money difference was almost $5,000, more if you include the final bounty payment and more still when a seat to the $20 million guaranteed MILLIONS Online was taken into consideration.
Eventually, batraztigiev claimed his 16th scalp of the tournament to boost his bounty payment to $6,194, plus he netted $15,463 from the main prize pool and a $5,300 seat to MILLIONS Online. Not a bad day in the office!
