Just three weeks after a victory in a Sunday $200,000 GTD event at Americas Cardroom for $58,050, Alex OutFoxenYou Foxen was at it again at the US-friendly poker room, this time claiming the title and $19,272.60 in a High Five Series tournament that featured an $80K guarantee.

Foxen outplayed 332 entrants who each put up $320 in return for a starting chip stack of 30,000. The end result was a $99,600 prize pool and another victory for the New York native who is also coming off 3rd and 2nd place finishes on the live felt in SHRP High Roller events for a combined $725,000 in winnings.

Three players earned five figure paydays in Event #8 of the High Five Series. Here they are:

1 OutFoxenYou $19,272.60
2 MrBgray $14,442
3 cTaponpaMeH $10,956

Also in the books of the 420-friendly poker festival that pauses for a 10-minute "courtesy break" each day at 4:20 p.m. is the $160 buy-in $50,000 GTD that attracted 415 entrants. Those entrants were vying for $62,250 in total prize money of Event #11 and "yangis" was the last player standing to collect the first place prize of $11,945.77.

In other High Five Series results over the last few days, "777noel" ($11,113.20) and "badfishplayer" ($8,987) both earned wins in events with $40K GTD prize pools. Total prize money surpassed the guarantee in each, $58,800 in Event #16 and $41,800 in Event #18.

Today is the final day of the $1,300,000 GTD High Five Series. A handful of tournaments are on the schedule including a $250K GTD Warm up 8-Max with a $109 buy-in (Event #21) and the $420,000 GTD Main Event (#23) that costs $420 + $30 to enter - for those who didn't win a seat via a bunch of satellites available at Americas Cardroom.
