There are numerous events still in store and the series runs through May 31 with a SC1.5 million guarantee. This is the biggest guarantee for a Rattlesnake series to date.
Players will find buy-ins for every bankroll with nightly High, Medium and Low events from SC3 to SC218. That includes three main events on May 24.
The action brought two big winners on Sunday. The SC110 buy-in Rattlesnake 17-M NLHE Deepstack featured SC40,000 guaranteed. The event smashed the guarantee with 553 players and a SC55,300 prize pool. New Jersey’s “Flow_so_cold” took the title for SC10,341.
The SC218 High version of the tournament featured a SC80,000 guarantee. That was also smashed with 572 players and SC114,400 paid out. Another New Jersey resident came out on top. “AAorBUST” took home SC21,392 and a trophy.
