$200,000 GTD a big hit
Our $200,000 GTD tournament with a $1,050 buy-in is always popular despite the price tag. Yesterday was no exception with 235 total entrants and a $235,000 final prize pool. Top-3 finishers:

$100,000 GTD High Roller PKO 8-Max
The $630 buy-in didn’t cause many PKO players to skip our $100,000 GTD High Roller PKO 8-Max. With 249 entries, we saw the final prize pool reach $149,400 (half of which was bounties). Top 3:
