When the final seven players in the $360 Black Chip Bounty event agreed to chop the remaining prizepool on Monday night, it was Alfredo Fernandez who had the lead with more than 27% of all the chips in play to win the title, the trophy, and $5,406.

Fernandez is a local player from Miami, Florida, and even though he has more than $170K in career live tournament earnings (including a 51st-place finish in the 2008 WSOP Main Event), this is his first victory in a trophy event.
