The PokerStars US Winter Series ran from January 12 to January 29, covering the states of Michigan and New Jersey (which share the same player pool), and Pennsylvania which remains a ring-fenced market. All in all, players competed for $3.75 million in combined guarantees across 170 events.

That was followed by another victory in the $300 buy-in Main Event on January 29 where they beat out 815 opponents for $42,420.

iFoldNOT came close to winning a third title on the same day after finishing runner-up in Event #75: $2,000 High Roller for $24,850.
