The PokerNews Live Reporting Team is focused on five events at the RIU Reno VIII, but there are plenty of side events throughout including Monday’s $125 NL Bomb Pot, a tournament played like traditional no-limit hold’em but requires players to each put up an ante and action starts on the flop.

The tournament attracted 124 runners which surpassed the guarantee by creating a $12,028 prize pool. The top 20 players got a piece of it including Michael Holmes (20th - $200), Kyle Anderson (15th - $250), Carlos Pal (9th - $390), Twitch streamer Arlie Shaban (7th - $570), Adam Owen (4th - $970), and former RIU Reno Main Event champ DJ Fenton (3rd - $1,228).

In the end, John Lewis of Portland, Oregon defeated Michael Wood in heads-up play to win the title and a $2,440 first-place prize.
