We’ll be bringing you the huge High Five Main Event roundup tomorrow, but there were plenty of other big money spots decided yesterday, starting with WSOPChamp2016’s title win.

There were 312 runners in the $2100 buy-in event 27 on the ACR schedule, and that took the prizepool some $62k above its guarantee, the top 36 doubling their money.

DamianLillard and NickVanExel were among the highstakes regs at the final table, the latter having taken down the Sunday Special on the US-facing site just a couple of weeks ago.

It was 7th spot and $10,920 this time, with Lillard managing an excellent 3rd place and $35,256.

The victory went, as mentioned, to WSOPChamp2016 after defeating Im_Just_a_Nit heads-up, though whether the champion’s nickname belongs to Qui Nguyen, the Main Event champ from the 2016 WSOP, isn’t clear.

The $215 buy-in Sunday Special was still on the rota, and there were 764 entries chasing a $152,800 prizepool – the top 4 looking at five-figure paydays.

The first of those went to t0206 for a 4th place cash worth $11,640, MemphisDryRub enjoying a $15,280 cash in 3rd.

That left 1salesconsultant to fight it out heads-up for the title against Shakermak3r, the latter emerging victorious for a $28,650 payday, the runner-up spot worth over $20k

The $250k GTD Warm-Up is always an attractive and well-supported event on ACR’s Sunday schedule, and yesterday was no exception as 2610 runners produced a $261,100 prizefund for the High Five event.

The amusingly titled ALLinYOUslags! battled to 7th place and just over $6.5k, but the real big money came down to the heads-up between Canadurrr and IsAAdorAA with the former winning through to a title win worth $42,298

The $5million ACR High Five series runs every day until next Sunday’s big finale on the 22nd, and if you want to get in on the action check out Americas Cardroom here.
