It was quite a weekend for SwC's 88FINGERS who overcame a field of 50 entrants to win SwC Poker's World Famous BIG BTC poker tournament on Sunday, September 20. The payout was a massive 160,000 chips (0.16 BTC) in the event that now takes place every Sunday and features a guarantee of 500,000 chips (0.50 BTC)!
The icing on the cake for 88FINGERS was the fact that the Young Seal won his entry to the BIG BTC by winning the 500+ KRILL BIG BTC FREEROLL the day before. A total of 99 entrants participated in the weekly freeroll that is available to players who have accrued only 500 Krill.
The BIG BTC was a roughly 7-hour affair that saw 88FINGERS and RILEYREID battle it out for the title, with the latter finishing runner-up and collecting 105,000 chips (0.105 BTC). Hefty payouts also went to SNAPPI 75,000 chips (.075 BTC) and OUTSIDEDABOX 55,000 chips (.055 BTC) for landing in third and fourth place, respectively.
Rounding out the field of winners were FORTUNATO in fifth place 40,000 chips (.04 BTC), TENNISBATTLE grabbing 35,000 chips (.035 BTC) for sixth place, and XGOODFELLA claiming the final payout slot and 30,000 chips (.03 BTC).
The weekly BIG BTC features a buyin of 10,000 chips and allows two re-entries. Late registration is available for three hours, giving players plenty of time to get in on the exciting action.
The field typically includes long-time SwC Poker players as well as new members, with some players such as 88FINGERS winning their way in through a variety of freerolls and super satellites! The BIG BTC runs every Sunday and features a recently increased starting chip stack of 15,000.
