Spraggy had a decent run in this weekend’s Sunday Million before crashing out in 355th place and netting a few hundred dollars. “mpailos” of Greece is currently in second place and has accumulated the most in bounties, $3k so far. “szyszo98” has the chip lead with close to 6 million chips.
A player from Brazil who goes by the name of “Lui$starPRO$” is sitting in fifth place. Interestingly, Lui$starPRO$ was on the final table of the Sunday Million just two weeks ago, eventually cashing in fifth. Could this be their second final table assault in a month?
