SugarRush Challenge — Final Results

12-WAY CHOP! WOW! After all the excitement and drama of a major tournament, the prospect of the remaining players taking home a substantial payday was too good to pass up. With sixty players already paid out, there was still over $100,000 left in the prize pool to divvy up by chip stack.

Still, someone had to have the largest stack…

Just SugarRush Winner

…and that person was none other that Tony ‘@OrigGorilla’ Shurilla! Sixteen thousand and change–not a bad payday! Vegas won’t know what hit ’em!!

Congrats to everyone who cashed, and a big thank you for everyone who came out to play! We can’t wait to see what the fall will bring…

Standings (as of June 24th)

So here are the latest stats:

  • 431 individual entries so far—25 more than at this point last March;
  • 102 made it to Day 2… but two different players have two Day 1 stacks, so we will only take their largest stack forward, which leaves us with a total of 100 Day 2 players so far—9 more than after March’s first six flights;
  • Last year, we ended up with 735 entries and a prize pool of over $175,000—and we’re on pace to beat that!
