A total of 177 players participated in the $1,000 + $50 buy-in event, with 74 re-entries swelling the total prize pool to $251,000. The last player standing in the way of victory for Coccobatto was "DonaldDunn", who settled for the runner-up prize of $33,257.50.

Five-figure scores went to the top six finishers that included "Hitokiri_Battousai" ($10,542), "thatchingchong" ($13,805), and "IndicaEndeavor" ($18,197.50), who landed 6th, 5th, and 4th, respectively. The top three slots were filled by the players listed below:

1 Coccobatto $53,965
2 DonaldDunn $33,257.50
3 p00cket00 $23,845

Another big event on the Sunday schedule at ACR was the $150K GTD Warm Up 8-Max. The guarantee was shattered on the strength of 1,145 unique entries and another 1,004 during the unlimited re-entry period.

At $109 a pop, that brought the prize pool to $214,900. Winning Poker Network regular "TheBeatless" claimed the top prize of $35,071.68. In order to do so, TheBeatless had to overcome the energetic efforts of "CreateMyOwnEnergy" and "LittleStitch". The winnings of those final tablists are posted below:

1 TheBeatless $35,071.68
2 LittleStitch $26,067.37
3 CreateMyOwnEnergy $19,448.45

The Sunday Special, featuring a $200 + $15 buy-in and $125K guarantee, attracted 548 players who combined to shoot 256 more bullets and create prize money of $160,800. The lion's share of that prize pool went to the tournament's champion, "MeuBilauVilalobos" ($30,150).

Finishing runner-up to the winner was a likely fan of television show "The Office", playing under the screen name of "Schrutefarm". Paper salesman and beet farmer Dwight Schrute, an eccentric and comedic character on the show, would no doubt approve of the 2nd place prize of $21,708.
