partypoker US Network Online Series Event #6: $15K GTD 8-Max NLH came to an end early Thursday with "jerseyman99" running his way to the finish line for the first-place prize of $4,512.
The sixth event saw 15 players start the tournament with that number steadily increasing throughout the registration period as "jerseyman99" outlasted a field of 94 entries at $215 apiece.
The 94 total entries generated a total prize pool of $18,800 that would be paid out to the top 16 players.
Once registration ended, only 32 players remained and that number quickly dwindled as "Bluehaven" bubbled the tournament at the start of Level 22, leaving the remaining players in the money.
From there, players started dropping by the wayside as Brian “TopCreature” Sherrier (16th place - $316.78), Event #4 Champion Orson "borgatcha" Young (12th Place - $413.60), and "xxx6395200xxx" (9th Place - $517), all got a piece of the pie but fell short of the making final table.

Final Table Action
In Level 25, Alex “JinYang” Butcher was the first to fall in eighth place, and "Rikishi" fell shortly after in seventh place.
The next level saw a flurry of eliminations happen when John "Slapshot1085" Forlenz, "Cara2Cacra" and "mia1223" all fell, leaving just three players.
Once three-handed action started, Hohner held the chip lead over his two opponents and while the chips shuffled around, Hohner fell in third place after he jammed into "jerseyman99's" pocket queens.
The heads-up battle saw "jerseyman99" hold over a 4:1 chip advantage and they made quick work of "Cholie" sending them home in second place.
