The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be focused on five events here at the RIU Reno VIII, but there are plenty of side events throughout including last night's Event #3: $125 Short Deck Hold’em. That tournament attracted 113 entries and created a $10,961 prize pool.
Among those to get a piece of it by finishing in the top 18 but fall short of the final table were Andy Camou (12th - $220), Eric Goldstein (15th - $180), Patrick Tardif (16th - $180), and Jon Wallace (18th - $180).
At the final table were some familiar faces such as 2012 World Series of Poker runner-up Jesse Sylvia, RIU Reno stalwart Vincent Newland, and poker pro Adam Owen. However, it was Sherman Mah of Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania who emerged victorious to win the trophy and $3,153 first-place prize.
