At the end of it all, Blair Hinkle, a 27-year-old pro from Kansas City, Missouri, emerged victorious (Defeated Justin Bonomo heads-up) to lay hands on $1.7m in prize money from the total prize pool of $11.9m!

The popular tournament series will be back this year on August 14 with 23 exciting events, including the $10 million guarantee main event!

Wow huge prize , though it still cannot beats the one big drop tournament that just happened in terms of prize going to the winner. Anyway would be a fun tournament to watch though it still has several months to go before it begins so good luck many thing might change prior to start of tournament. Cheers will e watching it!!

One big drop is out of this world, it is only for the richest out of richest.

This tournament is for "normal" people as well.

These poker tournaments seem to be getting more and more lucrative and they are disproving the myth that the poker scene is dying out.Good luck to all those lucky enough to play in it

the thing with this $10m Guarantee Main Event is that it returns in August... now it would be a totally different proposal if $10m Guarantee Main Event would return in September or October, actually it would be even a totally different proposal if $10m Guarantee Main Event would return in December, but no it has to return in August Aww crap!

Unfortunately I don´t care whether the main event returns in August or in September.

Because I won´t be participating... Big Smile Big Smile 5k buy in isn´t really anything for me. Big Smile Big Smile
