Recap of 2018 WSOPE €1,100 NLHE Turbo Bounty Hunter
The €1,100 Turbo Bounty Hunter (NLHE) offered a €200,000 guaranteed prize pool, with the top 59 players all earning a piece of the money.
The last remaining nine players made the final table, including notable pros like Angelos Pettas, Philipp Zukernik, Darko Stojanovic, Vangelis Kaimakamis.
In the end, though, it was the amateurs Gutyi and Sarnow facing off for the victory. Gutyi had a 3.5-to-1 chip lead to start.
Sarnow quickly doubled up and narrowed the gap. However, he would lose everything on the next hand.
Gutyi (Qd-2d) made a flush on a board of 10d-9d-3d. Both players checked, before a 10c landed on the turn.
This sparked multiple raises, which eventually saw Sarnow (10h-8s) shove his stack into the middle. A harmless 4d landed on the river, thus giving Gutyi the hand and the tourney win.
