Josh Degen has a $7,800 bankroll
Event 18 had the largest prize pool because 888poker Ontario guaranteed the $109 buy-in tournament with $40,000 in cash. Due to the presence of 403 players, that guarantee was exceeded by $300.
“Rykin671,” an eleventh-place finisher, pulled the $4,000 top bounty before going bust, making them the second-largest winner in terms of prize money. Rykin671 took home a total of $4,509.35; the champion was the only one who won more money.
Due to the size of the prize pool, only one player at the nine-player final table won less than $1,000 for their efforts, and even that player only lost by $26.
“DyckensCider” (worth $1,057), “tcavallin” (worth $974), and “Toddiep41” (worth $1,031) all failed, leaving the final table with six players. After “BanhkemN” ($1,427), who had previously won Event #8 for $731, was eliminated, the remaining six became five.
As a result of the crashes of “Iron My Jacket” ($1,441), “InWAAAVES” ($2,212), and “iamEklo” ($2,590), only “mgray3727” and “Josh_Degen” remained in contention for the title. The job was done by Josh_Degen, who took home the top prize of $7,816 and left mgray3727 with a consolation prize of $3,780.
