(pokernews.com)- Over the weekend, the PPC Poker Tour wrapped up its third season with the 2015 PPC Aruba World Championship. The series culminated with a $1,700 Main Event, which boasted a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool. That number was blown out of the water as 274 entrants took to the felt and created a $378,670 prize pool, plus four $5,000 packages to be awarded for the 2016 PPC Aruba stop.
Among those to make the trip to the sunny island were PPC Ambassadors Mark “P0ker H0” Kroon,Ronnie Bardah, and Joe Serock; as well as recognizable names like Kyle Cartwright, Sam Panzica, and Kou Vang, just to name a few.
Between the two starting flights, just 76 players advanced to Day 2, with only 27 of those slated to make the money. Among those to exit with a payday were Mike Beasley (24th – $3,408), Hayden Fortini (23rd – $3,408), Pamela Wilson (19th – $3,408), Kroon (19th – $3,787), Jesse Chinni (15th – $4,165), Eric Flesch (12th – $4,923), and Pablo Abraca (11th – $4,923).
