The first three events of the Bigger Online Super Series (BOSS) at Americas Cardroom have concluded and each tournament attracted more than enough players to easily surpass the guarantees.

BOSS #1 - $100,000 GTD

A $250 + $15 buy-in featuring $100K guaranteed was the first tourney on the BOSS docket. A total of 580 entrants participated, boosting the prize pool to $145,000.

It was "Package5" who emerged as the victor, taking home the title and $27,405 in prize money. All told, 72 players earned a payday. Here's the top three:

1 Package5 $27,405
2 FishFold $20,082.50

BOSS #2 - $125,000 GTD

The second event of the Bigger Online Super Series drew 266 entrants who each sat down with a starting chip stack of 20,000 after buying in for $530. Making a second final table in two BOSS tries was "Hurricane27," who finished 6th in BOSS #2 for $5,985 after a 3rd place finish in BOSS #1 was good for $14,790.

Standing in the way of Hurricane27 were the likes of runner-up "FLYK1" ($19,950) and the eventual champion, "SBMA2016" ($27,198.50). Hurricane27 is currently in 2nd place in the BOSS leaderboard race that will award the top three finishers with a free seat worth $2,650 to the $5 million guaranteed Venom tournament to be held in July.
