Kevin O'Donnell is in the Main Event field on Day 1a, and he's already won two events at the Ante Up Poker Tour Atlantis Series.

One of those wins came in the 1st Annual Cary Marshall Memorial Western Seniors Poker Series, a $200 No-limit Event. Marshall passed away earlier this month, just weeks after finishing third in the Super Seniors event at the World Series of Poker for a career-best $162,536.

The poker community mourned the loss of Marshall, who was a three-time WSOP Circuit ring winner with nearly a million dollars in career tournament earnings. O'Donnell knew Marshall well, as the two teamed up to play the WSOP Tag Team No-Limit Hold'em event on four occasions.

O'Donnell paid tribute to his friend by taking down the tournament, newly renamed in tribute of Marshall, for a $4,900 payday.
