MSPT Showdown Series

Joyner, Weissman Chop $1,600 Wynn Spring Classic $1M Gtd. Event

Will Joyner made a deal with Joey Weissman.

The Wynn Spring Classic closed up shop on a successful series on Monday, exceeding a couple of seven-figure guarantees in its marquee events.

The first $1 million guarantee, the $3,500 Championship, was covered live here on PokerNews and ended with Sung Joo Hyun and Matthias Auer chopping things up after an entertaining final table.

On Monday, the final trophy was lifted, as Will Joyner (pictured above) and Joey Weissman made a heads-up deal in the $1,600 No-Limit Hold'em that also had a $1 million guarantee. The former got the heftier prize with $243,188 to Weissman's $230,090, and consequently gained the title of champion.
