Jordan Sleen from Billy's Bar & Grill in Vergas, MN was the big winner in last night's FPN Vegas $100k World Championship Main Event, winning $25,000 for 1st place. Joseph Fisher from IL was runner up $15,000 and Dale Hjelmgren from WI took 3rd for $8,100.

Jordan qualified for the event by winning the TOC at Billy's Bar & Grill, a league that averages about 40 players on Monday nights and features some great players such as reigning 2-time national champ Joel Smith, who once again made an incredibly deep run in this event, finishing 11th place.

Jordan's TOC win at Billy's earned him a seat in Vegas and 10k in chips, but he was able to start the tournament with 50k due to qualifying in both the Bar Championship qualifier #3 and the Mega qualifier #4. Each qualifier rewarded players an extra 20k in chips.

Here is the final table results:

1 Jordan Sleen (MN) $25,000
2 Joseph Fisher (IL) $15,000
3 Dale Hjelmgren (WI) $8,100
4 Gary Lance (DE) $5,000
5 Wendy Adamczyk-D'Andrea (IL) $4,300
6 Christopher Nelson (MN) $3,400
7 Brian Lilly (IL) $2,600
8 Brad Bellman $2,170
