What is the largest ace pot anybody has won?

I played in a tournament the other day in the NW where it was foggy and wet and somehow seemed to make one of the best shots of my life. I not only aced a hole with a disc that I lost over the summer and had it miraculously returned to me with no number on it, but I also got $50 for it. It is funny how things workout sometimes, and it is times like this that I thank the DG gods for this sport.

A guy I play with won $500 on his first ace from an ace pot.

Scott Coleman collected $500 at a Birdshot tournament last May.

Ryan Gatten also banked $500 in a league ace pot a year ago.

It was up to ~$850 out at Cedar Hills in Raleigh, NC this summer when a single person finally hit it. It was for the summer doubles they run out there. You should've seen the crowd $850 will draw. It had DGers coming out of the woodwork. Everyone wanted a piece of the action.

At Cedar Hills i heard it was hit the week prior but the guy didn't buy in, so it got even bigger (up to the $850) and was hit by some noob...he apparently split it with his doubles partner, who was a pro and didn't expect his noob partner to be so giving!

I believe there was a $2000+ ace pot floating around a North Texas Series some time ago. There was a thread about it on the PDGA forum. I don't recall hearing/reading what happened to it.

2 Aces this year in league:
-$116
-$180

$296 total

There were 4 aces from all players in league this year. The day I hit the $180 another guy hit too. Otherwise it would have been $360.

Someone cashed $1200 for an ace earlier this year in Corvallis, Oregon.

The biggest acepot I've gotten was $450, at Morley Field, San Diego, about 3 years ago.

I understand that at one time (8+ years ago) Sylmar had a $2500 ace pool. But instead of allowing one person to win it all they split the pot up into two $1000 pots and had $500 left over to start building the next ace pot.

Congrats! I would love to hear how your no-number disc came back to you. I rarely get mine back with my number on it. Which hole was it?
