One of the biggest events on the schedule was the $3,500 buy-in, $2 million GTD No-Limit Hold’em tournament that ran from March 11-14. It attracted 889 entries which surpassed the guarantee by offering up a $2,867,025 prize pool to the top 89 finishers.

Among those to cash but fall short of the final table were Jack Hardcastle (13th – $38,112), Je Wook Oh (20th – $21,791), Faraz Jaka (25th – $19,032), Katie Lindsay (35th – $16,680), Mark Newhouse (47th – $12,891), Ali Imsirovic (69th – $10,168), and Nick Schulman (70th – $10,168).

The final table was stacked with accomplished players, four of which hailed from overseas. Two of those players – France’s Joseph Sabe and Brazil’s Joao Simao – would battle in heads-up play, with the former ultimately prevailing to capture the title and $507,978 top prize.

Hyo Joo Wins $5,200 PKO Bounty Event

Another tournament that recently wrapped took place on Sunday, March 13. The $5,200 Progressive Bounty tournament drew 88 runners, which offered up a $434,720 prize pool.

The final table of nine earned a portion of the regular prize pool, and when it reached three-handed play the remaining players opted for a deal that saw them each lock up $58,886. New Jersey’s Hyo Joo, who had amassed an additional $18,000 in bounties, was declared the champion, so he walked away with the trophy while David “Chino” Rheem and 2017 WSOP bracelet winner Anthony Marquez got the same amount of cash.
