Streamer wins Bounty Builder Main Event live on Twitch

Over $300k won, including $100k in bounties, as well as a very costly misclick were all caught live on Twitch last night.

The first PokerStars series dedicated to PKOs ended in fine style last night, after the Bounty Builder Main Event was won live on Twitch. 

Twitch streamer Phantom, who goes by the catchy name of '121323243434545' on PokerStars, outlasted a field of 5,673 in the $530 Main Event, which crushed its $2 million guarantee by a further $836,500. 

He didn't have it all his own way though, as a misclick he estimated to have cost him $50,000 in equity was caught on stream:

It all worked out well for him in the end though as he won the first prize of $201,591.09 as well as a final bounty tally of $104,338.86, which could easily be the biggest bounty ever won in a PKO to date. Either way, given that the bounties started at $125, that is one hell of a scalp. 

It wasn't enough to give him the biggest recorded win ever in a tournament on Twitch, that still goes to Doug Polk who won $455,000 in a WCOOP High Roller. It did manage to pluck him out of obscurity, however, as his Twitch channel reached a peak of 2,024 viewers during the final table run.

    I watched some of this guys run, he pulled off an insane bluff for his tournament life with 6 or 7 to go with 108 on a Q9XXK board.
