The biggest tournaments saw the guarantees met and surpassed easily, resulting in some handsome payouts for winners and top finishers. Here's the results of the three biggest events:

$200,000 GTD

Playing for a $266,000 prize pool were 266 entrants who each forked over a grand plus a $50 fee in exchange for a huge starting chip stack of 150K. The best among the bunch in the $200K GTD - at least on this day and in this event - was "perrolococt", whose bankroll grew by $57,190.

The top 45 places cashed in this tournament, with "MegBassLuck" claiming the last five-figure score ($11,172) for landing in 6th place. "MogeyWater40" ($14,630) and "ILOVEDANKMEMES" ($19,285) slotted just ahead of MeggBassLuck in 5th and 4th places, respectively.

$150,000 GTD

The title in the $150K GTD Warm Up 8-Max was claimed by "TheflawlessTiger", who did play flawlessly in capturing the top prize of $33,958.95. Entrants totaling 2,077 at $100 + $9 a pop created a $207,700 prize pool.

"YouGotHozed" likely feels that way after bubbling the event, finishing in 235th place and missing out on at least a min-cash. Not getting hosed was "spitFax", whose 4th place finish was good for $13,708.20.

There was no overlay to grab for 5th place finisher "overlaygrabber1" in the Sunday Special featuring $125K GTD. The prize pool hit $159,000 after 795 entrants bought in for $215.

The lion's share of the prize money and the championship went to "DamianLillard" ($29,812.50). The heads-up battle for the title saw "NWE001" ($21,465) settle for 2nd place.
