Parssinen Crowned Champion

It was a nail-biter and a battle that swung back and forth. Parssinen had moved into the lead with a second-place finish in Event #14, won by Chance Kornuth. However, Parssinen's lead was a single point, and he knew that several players could still clinch the overall victory depending on the outcome of Event #13.

Both Aku Joentausta and Gavin Cochrane had chances depending on the result, but both missed out on even a cash allowing Parssinen to clinch victory by the slimmest of margins.
