Unique to South Florida, the Big 4 is a collection of four tournament finales that feature staggered structures, timed so the events play down simultaneously. This year’s events boasted combined prize pool guarantees of $6.5 million. With 2,328 entries in Big 4 events, total cash payout exceeded the guarantees, topping out at more than $9.7 million.

The quartet of winners earned more than $1.7 million, with Dimitri Vorbe winning the SHRPO Championship NLH and claiming $929,365. This year’s SHRPO Championship drew 1,180 total entries, boasting a total prize pool of more than $5.7 million, marking the third largest championship field in SHRPO history.
