theNERDguy takes down Bounty Builder Series Event #8 for $133,515.85
Bounty Builder Series Event #8, a $400,000 GTD Titans Event Special Edition, was the biggest prized tournament of last night at PokerStars.
73 players were not enough though to reach the huge $400K guarantee and there was a small overlay.
Good for the finalists though as there was big money up top.
Big names, who made the money were bencb789, “WhatifGod”, Pedro “pvigar” Garagnani and his fellow countryman Yuri “theNERDguy” Dzivielevski.
The latter was once again unstoppable and pushed all the way to victory after defeating Argentinian high stakes regular Ivan “Negrin” Luca heads-up for the title.
