The 13th event of the massive Poker Masters online series was a $10,300 buy-in six-handed no-limit hold’em tournament with $500,000 guaranteed. Sixty-eight players piled into the competition and created a $680,000 prize pool that was shared among the top nine finishers.
Stephen “O’Dwyer was the first player to get his hands on some cash, namely $24,727. The likes of Alexandros Kolonias, and Lukas Nowakowski joined him on the rail, the latter bursting the final table bubble.
