Thank you for everyone who played in the first tournament. The turn out of 126 players was fantastic, especially with the short notice and it being father’s day. We even had surprise guests and WSOP bracelet winners,Vladimir Shchemelev and Lenny Martin. It was extremely fun for us to interact with our users in a new way and we’re hoping this becomes a regular event. We’re also planning to do some eSports events in the future so get your FPS skills tuned up.

A special congratulation goes out to our inaugural tournament winner DSNR as well as the 2 others who collected bounties on us. DSNR, had this to say to his haters, “Sometimes, it’s better to be lucky than good.” He also wanted to let everyone know that his trading philosophy is “Don’t call tops, wait for CNBC to call the top”. Aside from winning the tournament, DSNR collected the bounty for BittrexRich (Richie), while Lollero crushed the dreams of BittrexBill and HoSung bagged BittrexRami.
