Sunday Recap: OSS XL prize pools go through the roof
By Bob Garcia
Traffic continues to be off the charts at Americas Cardroom, which means yesterday’s $12 Million OSS XL tournament prize pools were even more pumped up than expected. Plus, our other signature Sunday tournaments all saw record numbers as well.
If you didn’t take part, check out everything you missed in our Sunday Recap for March 29th:
OSS XL #103 – $300,000 GTD Warm Up
Our 8-Max $300k Warm Up was sizzling and then some. Thanks to the participation of 6,000 entrants, the prize pool was double the advertised guarantee. 945 players walked away with a share of the $600,000 final prize pool in this $109 buy-in tournament. The top three:
OSS XL #104 – $150,000 Super High Roller
The $2,650 buy-in wasn’t a barrier to the 122 high rollers who logged on for Sunday’s $150k tournament. 16 players took home a piece of the $305,000 final prize pool. Congratulations to all the winners, especially the top three:
1. thatchingchong -> $67,100
2. ImWinninAnyway-> $47,275
3. TimeRules-> $36,600
Sunday Special $125,000 GTD
Sunday’s $125k unlimited re-entry tournament was more than twice as special as we expected. With 1,335 entries, the final prize pool swelled to $267,000. 135 players got paid in this $215 buy-in tourney. The top three:
1. titansfan396 -> $46,084
2. SunshinePoker-> $33,375
3. Jerbi9999-> $25,365
Back2McWork4u grills crowded field in $125,000 GTD
If yesterday’s $125k tournament doesn’t look familiar, that’s probably because the final prize pool ballooned to $379,000! 288 of the 1,895 entrants who played in this $215 buy-in tournament cashed. The top 3:
1. Back2McWork4u -> $50,634
2. SmashedAvocado-> $32,215
3. usolando-> $23,308
Day 2 of OSS XL #101 starts today at 2pm ET
2,365 players took part in Day 1 of our $1,000,000 GTD OSS XL tournament, which we held yesterday. 366 players will compete for a share of the $1,419,000 final prize pool when the action resumes this afternoon. If you didn’t advance, we’re hosting two more $1,000,000 tournaments this Sunday!
