Momentum from Successful Winter Series
The 2021 bestbet Spring Series comes on the heels of January’s successful 2021 bestbet Jacksonville Winter Open, an 11-event series that catered to a combined 2,330 entries and awarded $1,621,557 in prize money.
One of the biggest stories to emerge from the side events was Eddy Mroczkowski‘s impressive two-day performance. First, he topped a 195-entry field to win Event #4: $160 No-Limit Hold’em for $4,248 and then the next day bested 222 entries to take down Event #5: $360 NLH Monster Stack for $12,551.
In the $2,000 Main Event, 510 runners competed with Scott Stewart coming out on top to win the trophy and $177,817 first-place prize. Matt Mauldin also secured a six-figure score for finishing as runner-up for $118,422.
