English poker pro Ben Jones, aka DamianLillard, scooped a monster $381,680 payday on Americas CardRoom after outlasting 831 other entries in the $1million GTD BOSS Main Event last night.

That guarantee was smashed in the $2650 buy-in flagship finale event of the Bigger Online Super Series on the US-facing cardroom.

A final prizepool of $2,080,000 was up for grabs and that meant 99 places would be paid, and the top five would walk off with 6-figure paydays.

First port of call for the hopefuls, to make the money - and unfortunately for Yetunde4 it would be the bubble award, missing out on a $4,784 cash, with Dr.Hodl on the other side of the money fence, first to grab a min.cash and alongside the well-known ACR braggart xxMonsterxxDongxx.

Pisgapoker’s 27th spot would see them pocket the first of the 5-figure cashes, $10,400 for a 4x ROI, and a top 12 spot meant more than $20k, the lovely-named NH GG FU among those bagging $22,880 for fine runs.

Come the final table and the money would rise drastically, and Call4Cience pocketed the first of the $100k+ cashes for 5th spot, with LJG10 in 4th for $154,960 and galettederois in 3rd for $205,920.

That left Jones and his DamianLillard moniker battling Kak_Ded_Y4il and it was the Englishman who finally prevailed, taking the title and $381,680, with his heads-up opponent taking an impressive $272,480 as runner-up.

Jones has more than $5million in online MTT winnings across all the major sites, but his ACR victory at the weekend is the biggest single win of his online career.

It almost matches his biggest live payday, a 2nd place worth $390,956 in the 2018 CPPT Deepstack Championship Poker Series $5k event in Las Vegas.



Next up on the ACR menu is the $50million GTD MoMoMo PKO Series, kicking off on September 9th and featuring a $5million GTD Venom PKO Main Event.
