In the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up KO Week special, Andrew “BowieEffect” Wilson chopped the pot heads-up with “x_zola25” of Denmark. Both players took near even prize money. x_zola earned $12,707 for second and Wilson earned $12,758 for first.
Later on in the evening it looked like Sam “SamSquid” Grafton would bag a trophy for Team Pro. He eventually finished second in the $1,050 Sunday Cooldown for $20,017. Due to the number of bounties Grafton earned ($8.7k of his score), this was nearly as much as first place. “Internett93o” of Brazil claimed the top spot for $23,007.
Major events like the $5k Titans and $530 Bounty Builder HR are on break. We’ll bring you results of those tomorrow.
