Jason Weber won $115,000 on Monday, the third day of play.
The $1,090 buy-in event, the most expensive of the three-week series, drew 510 entrants, creating a prize pool of $510,000. The final two players worked out a deal, with Weber getting about $20,000 less than the planned first-place prize, and Adam Levy of Coconut Creek getting about $20,000 more.
