MTT Players Winning Huge Amounts Online
Online multi-table tournaments (MTT) are absolutely booming right now with guarantees blown out of the water around the world.
Grinders flocked to online poker sites on March 29 to continue playing poker. Large parts of the world are on lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic so have more spare time on their hands. Casinos and cardrooms across the world are also shut and poker players are playing online more than ever.
PokerStars is the world’s biggest online poker site so it’s unsurprising it’s seen the most benefit from extra traffic. The Sunday Million MTT usually attracts between 10,000 and 11,000 players each week, but the March 29 was different. A staggering 23,134-players bought in and created a $2,313,400 prize pool!
The MTT ended in a heads-up chop between Dutchman “Roykus” and Mexico’s “lfmdcv”. Roykus banked a cool $159,915 with the runner-up scooping $149,034.
PokerStars’ $530 Bounty Builder High Roller is another MTT that put up huge numbers. Some 3,203-players bought in to create a $1,601,500 prize pool when only $1 million was guaranteed.
Again, the top two finishers banked six-figure prizes. Denmark’s “kropop” got his hands on $104,033. Andorra’s “J0hn Mcclean” walked away with $178,474.
