While he had to settle for second place in the Main Event, Lleshi did not leave the series without a title. That’s because two days earlier he had prevailed over a 254-entry field to win the $240 Warm-Up NLH event for $11,674.

The series wrapped with Raminder Singh claiming the $360 Monster Stack title. That tournament drew 192 runners and ended with a three-way deal that also saw Dale North and Lunique Petiote each lock up $10,000.
