The $200k GTD with a $1050 buy-in attracted 219 entries, with almost $50k up top and 45 spots paid, the top five looking at 5-figure payouts.

ACR highstakes reg forkliftr grabbed the first of those with a 5th place cash worth $12,045, just behind jigmog7 who walked off with $15,877 in 4th.

That left the trio of Im_Just_a_Nit, KKtexasdollyKK and MARCUSBAGWELL to fight it out for the podium places and a share of close to $100k from the $219,000 prizepool.

It was MARCUSBAGWELL who prevailed, scooping $47,085 and another ACR title, having previous wins in the BOSS series earlier this spring.

The $215 buy-in Sunday Special PLO was one for the four-card enthusiasts and 166 entries, including ACR pro Thomas Holycannuli Cannuli and popular poker streamer groothedegen. Both made the money, but failed to reach the final table in a tough tournament.

Don Sirloin was among the better-known names to run deep, a 5th place worth $2100, while the fight for first came down to a heads-up match between Nohomobro and ABPoker5.

The latter won out and took $8050 top prize, the runner-up getting $4,900.

Back to two cards, and the $125k GTD Sunday Special NLHE drew in a healthy 811 entries, producing a prizefund of $162,200 – the top 99 hitting the money.

WillyBlaze grabbed the first of the four-figure payouts with a 4th spot and $12,083, while toughdefeat suffered just that in 3rd place, although the $16,057 cash will provide very decent comfort.

NickVanExel was looking to add yet another ACR win to the resume, but couldn’t overcome fuJOBUiDOitMYSELF, the latter scooping $29,763 with Nick settling for the $21,248 runner-up cash.

That’s it for another Sunday roundup at the biggest US-facing site, but we’ll be back next week with more action. In the meantime, check out ACR here if you fancy your chances against America’s best!
