The first event saw a modest overlay of the $200k GP, while the evening’s $1m GP was boosted to $1.2m by the multiple re-buys and add-ons of its zealous participants.

Eliminated in 3rd position, ‘dolphin75’ walked away with $21,100 as heads-up play commenced between ‘nortti77’ and ‘masterace222’. Though equally matched in skill, the cards fell in the favor of ‘nortti77’, who finished in 1st place for $$45,000. ‘masterace222’ was awarded $28,500 for the 2nd place finish.
