Event #14: $1,000 Super Bounty Turbo, brought to you by the 2024 World Series of Poker hosted by Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas started at 10 a.m. local time and attracted a total of 2,639 entrants, generating a tremendous prize pool of $2,322,320 for only a single day tournament.

France's Thibault Perissat was the last man standing at just shy of 3:00 a.m. Las Vegas time, ending a tale that was seemingly fate. For perspective on the rate of this turbo, one player was felled approximately every two and a half to three minutes, with blinds increasing every 20 minutes.

Perissat was absolutely exhausted and positively beaming when everything was said and done. He told PokerNews that he was given money to enter this tournament as a gift for his 30th birthday. It took him two years to make the poker pilgrimage and he got there, hardware and all.

Runner up, Ron Schindelheim, seemed poised to win the gold not only because of his steely demeanor and tirelessness. He was also literally one card away from the bracelet, but it eluded him. Destiny was on the side of Perissat this time.

Perissat wasn't the only competitor representing France at the final table; his fellow countryman Anthony Monin fell to Jesse Yaginuma in ninth place.

Hrair Yapoudjian was next to fall and he left with a sour taste in his mouth after he was outdrawn by the suited hand of Nevan Chang.

Schindelheim played the final table aggressively and didn't run into much resistance until Chang made a big call against him three-handed, at which point they were neck and neck.

Plenty of decorated players made deep runs to no avail on the way to this tournament's fruition. The 2021 WSOP POY Josh Arieh fell in 14th place shortly after misplaying a hand, according to him.

Recent seven-time bracelet winner John Hennigan also made it into the money before being thwarted. Chris Hunichen dominated most of the tournament, ultimately collecting at least fifteen bounties along the way to the money.

Joe Cada also made the final three tables. Other notables who entered but didn't run quite as deep include Chino Rheem, JJ Liu, Jeremy Ausmus, and Dan Shak.
