We’ll give the Joanna Krupa-hosted NAPT kick off event at the Venetian a little more love. Mainly for the sake of posting the above pic of Joanna Krupa.

So yeah, as the headline above subtly reveals, Ashton Griffin took down the $25,000 buy-in High-Roller Bounty Shootout, beating out a final table that included Hoyt Corkins, Joe Cassidy, Scott Seiver, Faraz “No Fly List” Jaka, Brett Richey and Peter Eastgate.
In case you missed it, the event was an invite-only shootout with seven tables featuring mostly big name pros. Players got $5k bounties for each player they knocked out and an extra $75k for winning their table. The player with the most bounties grabbed an extra $100,000. In the end that honor went to Scott Seiver who impressively busted the 6 other players at his first table and two more at the final table.
Here’s the order of finish, final payouts and number of bounties for each player.
1. Ashton Griffin – $560,000 (6)
2. Hoyt Corkins – $100,000 (5)
3. Joe Cassidy – $95,000 (4)
4. Scott Seiver – $215,000 (8)
5. Faraz Jaka – $95,000 (4)
6. Brett Richey – $90,000 (3)
7. Peter Eastgate – $85,000 (2)
