"SonOfRichDad" Wins $1M Bounty at GGPoker

"SonOfRichDad" Takes Down GGPoker's 1st Million Dollar Bounty!


In October 2022, GGPoker introduced the Bounty Jackpot in its popular Progressive Knockout (PKO) tournaments. The 'Bounty Jackpot' sees a player potentially rewarded with a mystery prize after eliminating an opponent, with the maximum payout being $1,000,000!

Well, the first jackpot in history was paid out to the player named "SonOfRichDad" who pocketed a seven-figure sum.

The hand was played in the $54 Ultra Deepstack Bounty Turbo, which is part of the ongoing $50 million guaranteed Bounty Hunter Series. With this buy-in the chance of winning this prize was 1 in 43,000…

How it happened?

Five of the players at the table were seated as the hand was dealt during table balance. Then "Tokyo90" got into his short stack from the small blind with ace-ten offsuit. Just trying to get the $12.50 bounty on his opponent's head, "SonOfRichDad" called from the big blind with jack-seven offsuit.



Both players paired up on the high ten flop and a brick on the turn put the player at risk as the clear favourite. However, another seven on the river gave "SonOfRichDad" trips and the winning hand.

An animation then appeared on the screen, and as the virtual scroll unfolded, a sum of $10,263 appeared. That prize alone would make anyone jump for joy, but it was even better for “SonOfRichDad” as that figure went into the $1 million jackpot! Which is the entire reward for an event with a $54 buy-in.
