LONDON, England -- Swedish PKR stalwart fatboyflex beat off a classy field of 70 participants, including fierce rival Scopey on his way to pocketing over $10,000 in PKR.com's inaugural Saturday Big Shot.
latest triumph for the 20 year-old deep stack specialist marks the pinnacle of his PKR.com career – his list of achievements including a PKR Open title and numerous final table appearances.
PKR.com forum favourite Discomonkey finished the $500 buy-in event in third spot, continuing the rich vein of form which steered him to the final table of a GUKPT Walsall event last month.
The Saturday Big Shot runs every week on PKR.com with satellites offering the chance to qualify daily for as little as $5. Designed to cater for the experienced player, 20 minute levels and 10,000 starting stacks make for a highly playable tournament which is the biggest buy-in event to be found online on a Saturday night.
PKR Cardroom Manager Neil Wright said, "The very first Saturday Big Shot has proved an attractive tournament for high rollers. With over $34K in the prize pool for the debut, we are looking forward to this event becoming even bigger over the next few weeks."
