Benjamin Spragg Is the New $215 Bounty Builder Champion

The $215 Bounty Builder attracted 224 entrants and had a $40,000 guarantee. But the players exceeded it by $4,800.

Some of the renowned players who signed up for the tournament included Juan "Malaka$tyle" Pardo, Vojta "vojta555cz" Skalak, and Patrick "thebigdog09" Brooks. Unfortunately, none of them secured a seat at the final table.

Chris "ImDaNuts" Oliver was the short stack at the table and he was eliminated in ninth place shortly after the action began. Guntis "poker$luggyD" Aleskins followed Oliver in eighth place as Arsenii "josef_shveik" Karmatckii and "VlgnasPokerV" exited the tournament in seventh and sixth place, respectively.

The remaining five finalists battled it out, each of them striving to be the last player seated at the table. But, "fcb-serv" got busted in fifth place with $1,852, and BrowarFans followed them in fourth position.

Lordof0512 exited the event in third place, setting up a heads-up battle between zepf86 and Spragg. Yet, Spragg's hand dominated, earning him $8,677 as he sent zepf86 packing as a runner-up with $5,326.
