They’ve now completed 60 events in the ongoing 2019 Bounty Builder Series, with many more knockouts still to come. Here’s an update with some results and highlights from the last couple of days’ worth of action


TODAY’S TOP STORIES

Robin Ylitalo nearly wins two events at once:
Looking over results from the 24 events that played out on Wednesday and Thursday, it’s fair to say Robin “robinho” Ylitalo earned first notice thanks to his efforts yesterday. The Swedish pro topped a 379-entry field to win Event #51, a $530 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament that yielded him a score of $32,418.04 (first-place prize plus bounties).

While doing that Ylitalo almost won Event #53, the $2,100 NLHE 8-max., ultimately taking second place behind Brazil’s “digopapel” to earn another $49K.

Near-miss for Ole “wizowizo” Schemion in $530:
Speaking of near-misses, on Wednesday there was another familiar name at the final table of Event #41, a $530 NLHE 6-max. event, that of Ole “wizowizo” Schemion. The German outlasted almost everyone, including the always tough Austrian-based pro Gianluca “Tankanza” Speranza” who finished third. Ultimately, though, Schemion couldn’t close it out and had to settle for runner-up to Canada’s “GrindHeaps” who earned over $46K for besting the 577-entry field.

More notables going deep: Among the other notables popping up at final tables was Austria’s “WATnlos” who took third in that Event #51 that Ylitalo won, then just missed making the last table of Event #57, the $530 NLO8 event won by Russia’s “1bloodflood”. The latter also saw Dan “woodbine ave” Scott — the Canadian player we were just talking to last month after he won another WCOOP event — make a deep run to finish fourth. Mike “munchenHB” Telker” was also around at the end of Event #38, a $22 NLHE tournament, finishing eighth after which “BabyGrand” went on to win.

Getting a lot for a little:
On Wednesday “FITZYOK” won a seat in Event #40, a $55 NLHE Turbo tournament, qualifying for just $2.20. The UK player then went on to win the tournament, topping a 2,342-entry field to earn $14,329.26 (first-prize plus bounties). Then yesterday “JayMow30” of Canada won entry into Event #56, another $55 NLHE Turbo, for just $5.50, then went on to finish second out of 3,233 entries for a total score of $12,057.23.

Russia still on top, Brazil battling: Russia continues to lead the world with 15 wins out of the first 60 events, although Brazil has done its best to keep pace with its players having captured nine titles thus far. Over the last two days Argentina, Croatia, Ireland, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Mongolia, and Sweden all produced their first Bounty Builder champs, while the Netherlands got on the board with its first three winners of the series — “boss_bobo”, “NNNXX”, and “loukofreak.”

Dig digopapel’s big score: We mentioned above how “digopapel” of Brazil denied Robin Ylitalo a second victory in one night. For winning Event #53, digopapel earned the biggest score of the last two days, adding a cool $89,974.70 to the account with more than half of that amount coming from bounties.

LEADER BOARD RACES

Two days ago the player with the most knockouts in the series had 59 of them. Today the leader has just over twice that, as Andorra’s “Andypsx” has managed to eliminate 119 opponents in 54 events. Wednesday’s leader “4bet_multibet!” did well to keep pace, though, and is presently second-most in KOs with 105. Here is the current top five:

Player Country Entries KOs  Cashed ($)
Andypsx Andorra 54 119 $8,334.37
4bet_multibet! Poland 49 105 $17,200.67
ROUNDSKY Russia 51 86 $1,942.71
MITS 304 Cyprus 76 84 $8,460.15
abarone68 Mexico 26 83 $6,896.33

Two days ago we were reporting a five-way tie for first among most cashes so far in the series. Today we deliver similar news as five players have cashed 13 times through the first 60 events. Once again we must highlight among the five Fabiano “Kovalski1” Kovalski, as he’s done it with the fewest entries and has earned the most in cashes among the group as well.

Player Country Entries Cashes Cashed ($)
Kovalski1 Brazil 43 13 $115,888.86
a23ssa Russia 46 13 $3,308.47
