The GSSS #40 — $75,000 GTD NLH High Roller ended in a heads-up deal where "TheGyph278" won $22,652 as the official winner of the tournament, while "stingerbell24" banked $19,000 as the official runner-up. Other notable players to outlast the 89 entrants to pony-up the $1,060 buy-in to make the final table included Jay "Jonuzi" Deutsch (3rd - $11,748), Jesse "NoXcape" Elliot (4th - $9,879), Daniel "mj23style" Sewnig (5th - $8,188), Michael "Gags30" Gagliano (7th - $5,073), and Darren "kinginthenorth" Elias (9th - $2,314).
