BBS second weekend highlights: The Bounty Builder Series ran into its second weekend of huge PKO events. The biggest of those are on break and will run into a second day.

Daniel Dvoress wins $5k Titans: This week’s $5k Titans played to the end in just one session, so we already have a winner. That winner is Daniel “Oxota” Dvoress, who took on tough competition all the way to the end. Dvoress faced “Gogac sniper” of Austria heads-up to earn his $112,314 prize. Gogac sniper had to settle for second, which in this case still means $86k.
EPT Prague is underway: You may notice some of the usual online names were missing in action this weekend. That’s because a good handful were at the EPT Prague. Sam “SamSquid” Grafton won the Super High Rollers on the opening day. You can read all about it here.
With 5,888 entries, the prize pool for the Bounty Builder Series $215 PKO Sunday Million stood at $1.17 million. “replay_ct” of Canada had the chip lead as the tourney went on break with 51 players remaining, but dropped in 25th place.
Viewers waited anxiously to see if Team Pro player Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot would take his seat as play resumed. It turns out tonkaaaa was having a very expensive nap, and sat out until he laddered to 27th.
With play down to two tables, “startsev-den” of Russia had taken the chip lead with wild plays and several double ups. “kilrogg94”, also from Russia, was close second in chips. kilrogg94 eventually finished third for a total of $49,207, and startsev-den came second for a total of $81,825.
