Day 1 Completed
Day 1 Completed
The first event of the final day of the 2016 Run It Up Reno festival has come to a conclusion with Matt Biljanic being crowned the champion and recipient of the $3,200 first prize and multiple bounties along the way.
The tournament started with 51 players taking a seat in one of the last tournaments of the festival and action would be fast as the tournament played adjacent to the Main Event final table that would eventually be won by Blake Vincent.
Once play was down to a final table, Rob Hamilton proposed a deal to ensure all the players that had made the final nine received some cash for their efforts as originally just the top seven finishers would be in the money. Hamilton (8th), Deb Swift (5th) and David Spurr (4th) would fall short of the win as it would be Aaron Schoch leading into heads up play against Matt Biljanic.
However on one of the first hands, Biljanic would be all in holding against Schoch's King-Queen suited, and when Biljanic spike a six, he would have Schoch crippled down to one big blind. The next hand Biljanic would come from behind to river a pair to eliminate Schoch and be crowned the $235 Knockout Green Chip Bounty Champion.
Unfortunately Biljanic would decline a winner's photo, and instead state, "I don't want my ugly mug on camera!"
Congratulations to Biljanic and all the in-the-money finishers here in the $235 Knockout Green Chip Bounty!
