Fintan and Spraggy both win $530 Bounty Builder HR
What a week it’s been for two of poker’s biggest streamers.
Fintan “easywithaces” Hand set the standard on March 18th, taking down the $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for $24,671 (including bounties).
In this hand he secured his first podium finish in the $530 this year.
Then he was able to close it out for the title.

Just a few days later (March 23) it was Benj “spraggy” Spragg gunning for the title.
He won the important flips.
And enjoyed just the right amount of good fortune.
Bounties are always huge three-handed and that was certainly the case here. Spraggy took down a nice one to take the tournament heads-up.
The duel wasn’t as smooth sailing as Spraggy would have liked.
But in the end, it was his destiny to join Finty in the $530BB winner’s club, taking it down for $21,545 (including bounties).
“The $530 Bounty Builder is Fintan Hand’s tournament. Now I join my good friend in the list of trophy holders.”
Finally followed in the footsteps of my hero @EasyWithAces and shipped his tournament!
1st in the $530bb HR for $21,545!!
Took 5th in the $55 mini version from 3300 runners for a near miss on the double trophy.
Incredible day on Twitch.
Thank you all. pic.twitter.com/oFhA7yVB9r

Nice work lads.
Vanessa “Niffller” Kade wins $1.5M in Milly anniversary
The biggest result of not only the week but the year so far came in the enormous Sunday Million 15th Anniversary.
When all was said and done it was Canadian pro and streamer Vanessa “Niffller” Kade who outlasted the 69,876 field to win the $1,514,920 first-place prize.
We just beat a field of 69,876 to win $1.5 Million.
It feels impossible.
This is the best day of my life.
It's not close.
