The McLaren Turbo Series has screeched to a halt after two week’s of high-octane, action-packed tournament at PartyPoker. The final act was to crown the $100,000 guaranteed Main Event and the $20,000 guaranteed Mini Main Event champions, and it is “naoseiquemeusou” and “SoyTuSicaria” who were first over the line when the final chequered flag waved.
The $33 buy-in $100,000 guaranteed McLaren Turbo Series Main Event saw 4,343 player start the tournament with high hopes, but only 626 of those starters qualified for Day 2, each doing so with at least a min-cash in tow.
Team PartyPoker’s Matt “MatthewStaples” Staples looked set for yet another final table appearances in a major online poker tournament, but he span out in 11th place having turned his $33 investment into a more useful $657.
Only “Howzithowzit,” the ninth place finisher, failed to walk away with at least a four-figure score for their efforts; they banked $836 with progressive bounties included.
“P4G4 0 B1G0D3” was the next to enter the pits but not before collecting $1,261.
The tournaments of “EMERSONRN16” and “DaDBM” came to a halt, both running out of fuel before the biggest prizes were awarded. The former collected $1,848 while the latter saw their PartyPoker account balance swell by $2,095.
Fifth place and $2,732 went to “DominikChmiel16.” There was a sizable jump in the payouts as “CarlosRocha1” hauled in $4,358 in the aftermath of their fourth-place finish.
The Main Event headed down the final stretch once “Betzaiten” could not continue, with third place weighing in at $5,643.
The heads-up duo were guaranteed more than $7,400 from the main prize pool and another four figures from the bounty prize pool. “naoseiquemeusou” overcame “Merci_bcp” in the one-on-one battle, adding $4,542 worth of scalps to their prize, for a total payday worth $11,997. The runner-up narrowly missed out on a victory lap, but they cannot be too displeased with the $9,011 they helped themselves to.

“SoyTuSicaria” Becomes the McLaren Turbo Series Mini Main Event Champion
“SoyTuSicaria” followed in the footsteps of “naoseiquemeusou” by triumphing in a McLaren Turbo Series tournament, namely the $5.50 buy-in $20,000 guaranteed Mini Main Event. A bumper crowd of 4,687 entrants resulted in a guarantee-busting $23,435 prize pool, of which the champion took home an impressive $2,310.
Indeed, the prize pool was so vast that even the runner-up, “champenjytte” took home $1,599, with bounties included.
Each of the nine superstars that raced their way to the final table left with a healthy return on their $5.50 investment, and any of them would have made a worthy champion. However, that honour belongs to “SoyTuSicaria,” who will no doubt find themselves on the podium and in the winner’s circle many more times at PartyPoker.
