Perth | 256 players | AUD $512,000 prize pool | 1st: Patrick Mahoney (NZD $120,000)
American Patrick Mahoney battled past 255 others to claim the AUD $120,000 first prize in Perth. Mahoney, who recorded his first live tournament win in the process, took the lion’s share of a three-way deal between himself, fellow countryman, Scott Davies, and runner-up Dean Blatt. The duo’s heads-up contest was a close-run race until the final hand, when, with stacks close to even, Mahoney made a full house on the river to beat Blatt’s flopped middle pair.
Auckland | 104 players | NZD $426,000 prize pool | 1st: David Lim (NZD $110,760)
