Edward Stanish's Victory

The $40,000 guaranteed $240 buy-in no-limit hold'em 'Monster Stack" tournament kicked off the series. It attracted 254 players who created a $74,000 prize pool.

Even so, Edward Stanish was the last man standing at the table. He won the trophy, $14,750 first-place prize, and the title.

The top 38 finalists won money. Players who finished among the top 15 got at least a four-figure score. Sandeep Vasudevan, the runner-up, and Stanish made five-figure cashes. Vasudevan took home $10,300.

The $300 buy-in four-game big bet mixed event is the next tournament. It had a $10,000 guarantee and attracted 51 players who formed a $13,260 prize pool that the top seven players would share.

John George Wins a Title

John George won $4,800, the biggest share in the prize pool. Sandeep Vasudevan lost the title to George several days after he became the runner-up in the kickoff event and won $2,900 and increased his winnings in the two events to $13,200.

The $300,000 tournament was the next huge event on the series' schedule, and it had the second biggest guaranteed prize pool. The $400 buy-in "Big Texas" no-limit hold'em tournament from November 10 to November 14. It has a live-streamed final table and eight starting flights.
