mne_d0edet1 Takes Down Day 4’s Biggest Prize

One of Wednesday’s biggest highlights was Event #47 $50,000 8-Max, a $109 buy-in tournament that attracted 840 players and created a $84,000 prize pool. It took 12 hours and 14 minutes for the tournament to finish, and in the end, it was Russia’s “mne_d0edet1” who walked away with the title and a $15,540 first-place prize.

Also at the final table was Costa Rica’s Michael “AcesJoker88” Acevedo, who back in March cashed three times in a poker festival in Panama. One of those cashes was for a live career-best $5,800 for finishing 17th in the PSC Panama National Championship. Acevedo managed to better that in the online tournament by finishing fourth for $6,300.

The $160 buy-in Event #52 $20,000 Americas tournament drew 132 players. It took a little over eight hours for “joga_pra_cor” to finish as the last player standing for $6,900.

The win was just the latest this year for “FouEnculePL” with 888poker. On April 26, he took down the $6,000 Late Night Crocodile for $2,730, and a month before than came out on top in the $10,000 Tornado for $3,175. Two weeks prior to that, “FouEnculePL” bested a field of 287 runners to win the $15,000 Monsoon for $2,655.29.
