"CupidL4st" Wins High Rollers Week Event #1: $525 Bounty Hunters HR Main Event ($89,971); Felipe Ramos Takes Eighth

High Rollers Week kicked off with a bang at GGPoker with Event #1: $525 Bounty Hunters HR Main Event guaranteeing a whopping $1 million prize pool for a $525 buy-in.

Players turned out en masse to smash the guarantee with 2,226 entries generating a $1,113,000 prize pool with a total of 314 players cashing for at least a $701 min-cash in addition to any bounties collected along the way.

All eyes were on GGPoker Ambassador Felipe Ramos as he managed to navigate his way to the final table. Unfortunately for Ramos, he was unable to advance past eighth place. That being said, he did manage to parlay his $525 buy-in into a five-figure haul of $15,495 including $7,095 in bounties.

Marcelo Asensio (third - $35,562), "Kris_Petrova" (fourth - $43,523), Mario "NAlROBl" Del Valle (fifth - $35,603), Augusto "Betylafea" Hagen (sixth $15,077), and "Howzatt!"

"CupidL4st" came out on top to win the event for $89,971 while Atanasov padded his bankroll with a huge haul of $56,034.
