The $50,000 Christmas Skins Series kicked off at TopBetta over the weekend with a healthy field getting into the Christmas spirit to share in a guaranteed prize pool of $50,000.

Week one would see punters spread their wagers over the metro tracks of Rosehill, Eagle Farm, Morphetville and Flemington to see who would earn the most BettaBucks to claim the first “skin” of the series.

A field of 121 entrants, tossed in a further 49 rebuys, and at the end of the day it was camicazi who emerged on top of the pack to collect the $2,500 top prize.

TopBetta Christmas Skins Week 1

It was a rather remarkable day for camicazi who had wagers on Woakwine at $65.20, Aurum Spirit at $32.40, Cavaloce at $10.80, Tunes at $9.90 and a number of $6 winners on what turned out to be a great day for value. No one could get near camicazi with his stack of $293,536 more than double his nearest rival as yesitsme ($127,800) and Dale88 ($82,050) rounded out the top three.

The top 18 players shared in the $10,000 prize pool.

The 23 players who ended the day with some BettaBucks still in their account will carry that balance through to the final week of the Christmas Skins Series on New Year’s Eve.
