Overlay in iPOPS Main Event

The fifth instalment of iPOPS came to an exciting conclusion last night as players rolled up for the $200+15 Main Event.

Despite the 1,891-strong field the prize pool failed to match the $400,000 guarantee, thus creating a mouthwatering overlay of 21,800.

A total of 49 Black Belt Poker players heeded our words of value, including sponsored pros Jerome Bradpiece, Kevin Williams and Neil Channing.

A round 10 pulled in a profit with Blue Belt Jamie StilettoMafiosa Burland finishing 262nd for $340.00. Also in the money were Ian 1894IAIN Brassell and Ken NPStars1 Johnston.

Top bananas, however, went to Bruce UsainZeus88 Jones who captured the bronze medal in third for an impressive $36,000.00.

Currently an Orange Belt in the Belt-Up Rewards System, Jones was no stranger to the final table having earned $13,160.00 for fourth in last year’s opening iPOPS event.

“Thank you very much for the rail!” he commended in a forum post. “So pleased I got a bad beat rather than a blow-up (although it was standard play).”

Final results:

3rd UsainZeus88 — $36,000.00
46th AWondaX — $880.00
59th NPStars1 — $820.00
121st 2napkins — $560.00
123rd welljellflop — $560.00
194th Bluegooner1 — $420.00
206th Bowlyflush — $400.00
232nd SvenBenson66 — $380.00
262nd StilettoMafiosa — $340.00
276th 1894IAIN — $320.00
