After an epic final table that lasted some 15 hours or so, Pat Walsh finally emerged victorious! Walsh battled hard through a final table that included some great players including his heads-up opponent Ali Eslami, who Walsh had to fade a big draw in the end to take the title.
By beating Eslami, Walsh earned that extra bounty in order to put himself in a five-way tie for the most bounties. He'll chop the $20,000 prize for that with four others and add $4,000 to his score, which includes $40,000 for winning his first table, $26,000 in bounties and $171,700 in first-place prize money. That's a grand total of $241,700.
