The United Kingdom came ever so close to having a KO Series champion on Day 1 when two of its players found themselves in the final three of the KO Series #03-H: $300K Gtd [8-Max] event.
A field of 2,480 left a near $42,000 overlay and Austria’s “Bill Kassouf” took full advantage of the extra value by triumphing over their opponents. The Austrian walked away with $27,242 for finishing in first-place and a further $13,271 worth of bounty payments.
Players from the UK finished in second and third-place for big scores but narrowly missing out on glory. The player known as “brookert33” busted in third-place for a combined score worth $15,926 while “redcoatchris” saw their impressive run end in a second-place finish worth a welcomed $20,619.
