On Sunday, three tournaments were held including Event #12, a $55 No Limit Hold’em Heads-Up contest. The tournament generated a field of 4,096 players and two members of the online poker community dueled at the final table. In the end, PokerNewsTournament Reporter Kristy Guess16Arnett (pictured) came away with the win and banked $31,000.

Heads-up, Arnett edged out iPlayTourneys, who walked away with a $17,000 consolation prize.
