The $1 million guaranteed Big Game freezeout ran again on January 27th and saw a field of 211 entrants create a guarantee-busting $1,055,000 prize pool. This huge sum was shared among the top 32 finishers, and four Team partypoker pros made it deep into the money.
$1 Million Big Game Final Table Results
|4||Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard||United Kingdom||$82,290|
|6||John “John_Duthie” Duthie||United Kingdom||$44,310|
It was “hi_all” from Finland who was the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble, crashing out of the competition in 33rd place to be the last player to leave empty-handed. Their exit locked up at least $10,972 for those 32 players who still had chips in front of them.
Joao “joaosimaobh” Simao of Team partypoker fame busted in 20th place for a $13,187 score, while recent addition to the partypoker Player Panel Nikita “fish2013” Bodyakovskiy saw his tournament come to an abrupt end in 14th place, a finish worth $15,614.
Each of the eight players at the final table locked up at least $24,265 for their effort, and this was the prize “HeavensEdge222” collected when they busted in eighth-place.
John Duthie Scoops $44,310
Seventh-place and $32,705 went to “bgigra4” from Bulgaria before the President of partypokerLIVE John “John_Duthie” Duthie ran out of steam, or probably luck knowing how Duthie loves to play a loose-aggressive style, in sixth-place for a $44,310 prize.
Ukraine’s “SanityWaterline” netted a cool $58,025 following their fifth-place finish before the last standing member of Team partypoker, Patrick “Patrick_Leonard” Leonard fell in fourth-place to turn his $5,200 investment into a massive $82,290 score.
Leonard’s exit meant the final three players would walk away with a six-figure haul.
“orpenkk” from the UK was the third-place finisher and collected a $111,302 prize to leave “lqq1974” of Belarus and “edgybrah” of the UK to lock horns heads-up for the title and the massive $215,144 top prize.
It was a battle the Brit would ultimately win, scooping the $215,144 first-place prize for themselves and resigning their heads-up opponent to a $156,140 consolation prize, which will go some way to make up for the disappointment of not winning.
