Cabrerizo put on a show during the PGT PLO Series winning three events, including the $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship. Cabrerizo's three event wins resulted in him amassing 774 PGT points to be crowned the PGT PLO Series champion and awarded the $25,000 championship bonus.
Jim Collopy and Nacho Barbero finished second and third overall on the PGT PLO Series leaderboard and moved into 15th and 12th on the PGT leaderboard, respectively.

Alex Foxen cashed twice at the PGT PLO Series - including a third-place finish in the $15,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty - to remain in third overall with 544 PGT points.
Michael Wang cashed twice during the PGT PLO Series, but also added a Wynn Millions high roller win for $308,016 to now sit in fourth on the PGT leaderboard with 490 PGT points. Aram Zobian finished runner-up to Wang and solidified his position in fifth overall with 471 PGT points. Daniel Negreanu finished fifth in the first Wynn Millions high roller, and then added three cashes during the PGT PLO Series to move into seventh overall on the PGT leaderboard with 454 PGT points.
