The poker world was on the edge of its seat this past weekend as 1,000 players took part in the $109 buy-in $100,000 guaranteed Mystery Bounty Main Event at 888poker. After an intense competition, it was Finland’s “Jore007” who emerged victorious.

The mystery bounties came into play from the 18th level on Day 1 and soon some of the larger prizes found new homes. The United Kingdom’s “MCBlaze14,” for instance, crashed out in 105th place but not before scoring a golden envelope containing $3,000. Meanwhile, Germany’s “MOMOs” took home the biggest mystery bounty payment—a cool $10,000—despite busting in 40th place.

As the final table began, it was “Jore007” who held the chip lead with a stack containing 99 big blinds. Following close behind were Sweden’s “Mr.Kantarell” and “LittleBiglet,” with Brazil’s “acrt456” rounding out the top four.

The action was fast and fierce. Within 15 minutes of Day 2 kicking off, “PerAspera” was eliminated after moving all-in against “DonSicario.” However, it was a hand between “DonSicario,” “Jore007,” and “Mr.Kantarell” that set up “Jore007” for his eventual win. Flopping a full house with pocket kings against “Mr.Kantarell’s” pocket aces gave him a gigantic pot and put him in a dominant position.

One by one, other players fell. The heads-up match came down to “ElChopo” and “Jore007.” Although he had lost more than three-quarters of his previously massive stack in the build-up to heads-up, “Jore007” managed to regain his lead and eventually take home the crown.

The final hand was a nail-biter, with “ElChopo” limping in with an ace-queen of clubs, only to be raised by “Jore007” with pocket kings. When “ElChopo” went all-in, “Jore007” called and held on to win the hand—and the tournament. The Finnish champion took home an impressive $11,326, leaving his opponent with a respectable runner-up prize of $5,898.

It was another thrilling weekend at 888poker that kept poker fans glued to their
