Prize pool ends at over $2 million in Bigger Online Super Series finale

A month of big tournament guarantees at the Winning Poker Network wrapped up Sunday with the Bigger Online Super Series $2,650 Main Event. BOSS #43 – $1,000,000 Guaranteed Main Event saw 832 entries register, more than doubling the guarantee with a $2,080,000 prize pool.

High-stakes tournament pro Ben ‘DamianLillard’ Jones outlasted the field to take down the BOSS Main Event grand prize, pocketing a $381,680 payday. BOSS #43 played out as the centerpiece event of the Bigger Online Super Series, the third and final leg of WPN’s OSS Cub3d X series.

OSS Cub3d X ran throughout August, featuring more than 220 events. The series promised $15 million in guarantees, and that number was far surpassed thanks to big turnouts in the events like the BOSS Main Event.

Here’s a look at some of the biggest winners from OSS Cub3d X:

BOSS #43 –  $1,000,000 Guaranteed Main Event

Ben ‘DamianLillard’ Jones added the biggest online tournament score of his career to the resume with his $381,680 win in the BOSS Main Event. According to PocketFives, Jones’ win in BOSS #43 marks the sixth time he’s earned a six-figure payout in an online tournament.
