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.

It's been a very, very long night so we're going to keep this as short as possible. We'd like to thank everyone for following our coverage of The Big Event here in Los Angeles at The Bicycle Casino. Be sure to stay tuned to PokerNews for all your live tournament coverage! Congratulations to all the winners and especially Pat Walsh for taking home the title!
