The Dayton, Ohio resident posted the following tweet after his victory, which came at the expense of 179 entrants who bought in for $1,000 + $50.

The field was $21K short of the guarantee, providing value in the form of an overlay for the participants. Capitalizing on that value were the likes of "tigerhood24" ($15,500) and "SBMA2016" ($12,000), who recorded five-figure scores for landing 4th and 5th, respectively.

Also making it into five-figure territory were the runner-up and 3rd place finisher listed below, right behind newly minted champ KyWildcatOgre:

1 KyWildcatOgre $45,000
2 suckondese $27,000
3 dwadebk1212 $20,600

There was no overlay in the $150,000 GTD Warm Up 8-Max as 1,639 entrants traded $100 + $9 for a starting chip stack of 25,000. The result was a prize pool of $163,900 that was distributed to the top 98 players.

"M8kingmoves069" was one move short, bubbling the tournament and missing a min-cash of $180.29. All the right moves were made by "shipppit2shorty", who topped the field for $27,453.25.

The $125,000 GTD Sunday Special attracted 584 entrants at a $200 + $15 buy-in. That was one less entrant than last week and short of the guarantee, prompting ACR to top up the prize pool.

"FrancoPavane1962" knocked on the door of a Sunday Special title for the second week in a row, finishing 3rd for $12,750 after placing 2nd last Sunday for $17,312.50.

The championship went to "kingking55", who got past runner-up "Oficleide" to take home $23,625. Here's the prize money won by the three best:

Other big winners yesterday included "trollipollie" in the $530 buy-in $50,000 GTD High Roller for $13,375. The event drew 107 entrants for a $53,500 prize pool, with 18 players hitting pay dirt.

The $50,000 GTD with a $200 + 15 buy-in reached $65,000 in prize money as 325 entrants participated. "BornBelowEV" ($13,325) claimed the lion's share of payout cash with a victory. FrancoPavane1962 finished 3rd once again, adding another $5,850 to that growing bankroll.
