Huge opening win for FrCnnctn1960

The big winner on Day 1 was the United Kingdom's FrCnnctn1960.

In a tournament where no other player collected more than $9,443 in bounties, FrCnnctn1960 scored more than five times that much. Combined with the scheduled first-place prize, that made for a stunning total prize of $144,653.09, nearly twice what any other player won on Day 1.
