Matt Leecy, Tampa Poker Classic Main Event champion

The $1,650 buy-in finale drew 332 entries flirting with the $500,000 prize pool mark before settling in at a stout $498,000. A slew of decorated pros traveled to Florida converging on the property, but it was local Leecy that took the win outright scoring $112,425 in the process.
