Friday was an action packed night in the Turbo Series, with all eight tourneys on the schedule running at hyper-turbo pace, some with an added PKO twist. Here’s what went down on Day 6:


TURBO TAKES

It’s all about the knockout in Heads-up Zoom event: Event 45 pitted 1,448 entries against each other in a heads-up, Total PKO, hyper turbo Zoom format. Bit of a mouthful, but no doubt an interesting battle for those involved. Two Russian players, “Time4lucky” and “example92”, made the final heads-up match. example92, having knocked out many an opponent along the way and claiming the final bounty, won the tourney for $17,065.

Fifth place takes more than second in Event 47: The Total PKO format of this event meant that, once again, all the prize money was in the knockouts. With a $265,199 prize pool, this was one of the biggest tourneys of the evening, so anyone playing for those final table bounties found themselves in a position to pick up a big score. That explains why fifth place finisher “Zottelbart” from Germany walked away with $8,915, more than double that of “Jackz Debute” from Belgium, who took $3,985 for second. “DustHL” from Russia came first for $14,978, tallying up their second biggest score.

Regs out to play in Daily Supersonic: The $530 Daily Supersonic was the Turbo Series event where online poker’s sharkiest players seemed to focus their attention on Day 6.
