At 11 a.m. local time, cards go in the air in the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino for one of the new event of the series; the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo Bounty. With levels of just 20 minutes, the action is expected to move quickly throughout, with players encouraged to gamble it up even further thanks to a $500 bounty awarded for each takedown.
All players will receive 25,000 in chips to start, blinds will kick off at 100/100, and late registration is open for 12 levels, which is until about 3:40 p.m. local time. The players will have a 20-min break every 6 levels and a 75-min dinner break after the 18th level of play (≈ 5:40 p.m.). Bounties cannot be redeemed until after 6:00 p.m. on Day 1.
This is the second and last single-day event of the series, with a champion being crowned at the end of the night. It’s Daniel Park who won Event #12: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo Bounty, topping a field of 2,452 unique entries and enjoying all of the ups and downs throughout the day to end up with the coveted gold bracelet as well as a nice $226,243-payday.
