The 2021 Pinktober Poker Open schedule featured 10 tournaments over 12 days with $283,000 in guaranteed money. Not content with that number, our players came out the entire series and combined to put up $530,690 in prize money.
That is a great success by any measure.
We kicked things off with a $500 Mega Stack multi-flight tournament and Antwan Prince took the top prize of $28,818 after a final table deal. Ken O’Donnell won the second big tournament when he collected $20,059 for an outright win in the $600 multi-day tournament.
But the entire series was headlined by the $1,100 buy-in One-Day Challenge on the last Saturday of the series. The tournament put up a six-digit prize pool and it was Tampa Poker regular Steve Trizist taking the top prize after a late hot stream.
You can find updates/results for all 10 events below. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the series and we look forward to seeing everyone for the 2021 Tampa Winter Poker Open running from December 1 through December 13!
