If there’s one thing better than a big win, it’s a big win from a tiny entry fee.
This is a round up of the weekend’s biggest ROI results. A chance to feel inspired by the success of players who took the road less trodden, and got paid for it.
If you’re not familiar with ROI, here’s how it’s calculated:
Total prize / buy-in = ROI
It’s a relatively straightforward formula that tells you how much a player earned compared to the amount they initially invested.
This weekend, players scored huge ROIs in the Bounty Builder Series, as well as in lower stakes regular Bounty Builder games.

‘Wolldroppow’ from Germany won the event, earning $16,489 for first place, plus an additional $9,598 in bounties for a total of $26,087 in winnings.
‘Wolldroppow’ gained entry via a $7.50 satellite, making their a 3,477 ROI for the tournament.
Canadian player ‘Meitz4’ came third in the same event, earning a total of $16,402 including bounties. They gained entry via an even lower priced $2.85 satellite. This gave us out top ROI of the weekend – a whopping 5,754 percent.

‘T021TP’ earns huge ROI in Bounty Builder 006
One of the biggest cashes of the weekend went to Russian reg ‘T021TP’. They earned a total of $68,239 for finishing first place in the $215 Bounty Builder 006 event. This included $23,467 in knockout prizes.

‘T021TP’ gained their entry by winning a $27.50 satellite, giving them a total ROI of 2,480% – huge when you consider the buy-in level and what that actually amounted to.
Huge ROI at the low stakes
At first glance, the most impressive satellite victories are those with the biggest prizes. Yet the low stakes success stories are just as interesting to the trained mind.
‘_Aggelos_789’ from Greece managed to achieve an incredible multiple on their buy-in. They came second in the $11 Bounty Builder tournament at the weekend, earning $6,384.
Not the biggest score, but technically one of the top wins of the weekend when you consider that ‘_Aggelos_789’ earned all this from a $1.45 satellite. Their total ROI for the tournament is 4,401 percent.
