“cmase” Wins Latest $1M Gtd MoMoMoPKO Event

$5 million is guaranteed in the Venom PKO, will cmase win this event too?

The third week of the MoMoMoPKO Series wrapped up at Americas Cardroom this week and did so in style. A huge field descended on the latest $1,000,000 guaranteed event and “cmase” excelled.

cmase was one of the 1,569-entrants in the $620 buy-in event. That field size resulted in an overlay of $58,600 which Americas Cardroom added to the prize pool. Those starters fought it out for a share of the $529,300 main prize pool and $470,700 worth of bounties.

The top 180 finishers received a prize from the main prize pool. $582 was a min-cash with a final table appearance boosting this to $5,504.

“domoAlyGato” busted from the final table in ninth for $5,504 plus $4,500 worth of bounties. “b00ma” followed him to the rail with a combined prize worth $10,956.

Everyone, including cmase, was now only six eliminations away from becoming a MoMoMoPKO champion. That figure became five with the elimination of “airmezz” who banked a combined $18,574.

cmase Eyes The Massive Top Prize

All the remaining prizes were at least $30,000 with bounties taken into consideration. “Obelisk1” secured $36,264 thanks to amassing $15,622 from the bounty prize pool. This was more than the $30,472 “kwansolo” padded their bankroll with after busting one place deeper.

The bounties were now massive and having a major effect on the remaining players’ decisions. Cmase kept making the correct choices and soon found himself heads-up for the title.

“pagodeiro31” and “Barewire” busted before that happened. The former won $51,188 with the latter walking away with $62,867. Matters were suddenly very serious indeed.

Both cmase and “rocky1717” guaranteed themselves $77,092 from the main prize pool, a massive prize in its own right. But there was the matter of the final set of bounties, which had grown more than substantial.

cmase got the job done and brushed aside the player named after the fictional boxer. Rocky1717 added $10,380 worth of bounties to their main prize for a combined total worth $87,742.

$50,973 was the bounty cmase got their hands on, taking their total haul to a cool $128,065.
