New Mystery Bounty produces solid numbers

In other 888poker news, Sunday’s regular $109 weekly main event was altered to a Mystery Bounty Kickoff. The event featured a $100,000 guarantee, but the turnout produced much more paid out to players.

The event attracted 1,430 players and 457 rebuys for a $188,700 prize pool. The big prize was a $10,000 bounty.

That went to Brazil’s “brubsb,” who finished 89th for $291 and also scored another $99 in bounties for a total payout of $10,390. Two $3,000 bounties were also up for grabs and two Lithuanian players, “Eg1D1” and “rupuziokas,” scored those payouts.

In the end, “marllonsanti” secured the win for $16,886 in prize money, along with $596 in bounties. The winner’s payout totaled $17,482. “supppp” scored $16,249 in prize money for runner-up. He also grabbed $593 in bounties for a total of $16,842.
