August BIG BTC Wrap-Up

August BIG BTC winner 'PaulC' scores 225,000 chips

SwC Poker’s world-famous BIG BTC poker tournament took place this past weekend and had a storybook ending, with two satellite winners battling it out for the top spot! We had 68 entrants, playing for a massive guaranteed prizepool of 750,000 chips (0.75 BTC).


Among the top finishers were long-time SwC Poker players and new members alike. At the conclusion of the final hand, PaulC had won every chip in the tournament, along with the massive top prize of 225,000 chips (0.225 BTC). Runner-up thechosen1 scored a heaping 150,000 chips (0.15 BTC) while third place finisher EndTheFed walked away with 105,000 chips (0.105 BTC) for his efforts. Other winners included BrokeNeck and themayorpete, the latter making the final table in back-to-back BIG BTC events.


The BIG BTC is always on the last Sunday of every month. The next BIG BTC will run on September 29th, 2019 and feature a 600,000 chip (0.60 BTC) guaranteed prize pool. The 10,000 chip buy in can be paid directly, but there are many guaranteed chances to satellite into the game for as little as 100 chips. Players with sufficient krill also have multiple chances to win a seat in freerolls. PaulC and thechosen1, who finished 1st and 2nd, earned their BIG BTC seats from satellites and freerolls. It could be your turn next!
