Day 1 Completed
Midnight came and brought with it a chop.
Canadian Peter Raimondi had drawn about even in chips with Andrew Mosey and collected $11,500, the 2017 Seneca Niagara Falls Summer Slam $1,000 Deep Stack High Roller title, and the trophy.
In the meantime, Andrew Mosey got the better end of the money chop, taking $12,500 for what will officially be recorded as a runner-up finish.
The rest of the remaining field, including Ray Williams, Alex Visbisky, Chris Damick, Guy Klass, and Maurice Sessum, will each take home $8,676.
The event drew 82 entries creating a $73,501 prize pool. In fact, it was just one entry shy of the 2016 Summer Slam High Roller, proving once again the local appetite for single-day events at this buy-in level is a consistently healthy one.
The $1,000 Deep Stack High Roller is now over, but the 2017 Seneca Niagara Falls Summer Slam series continues with the first of four flights in the $50,000 Guaranteed $200 No Limit Hold'em event beginning at 10 a.m. local time Friday.
Tune into PokerNews at that time to follow all the action in the chase for more Seneca Poker glory.
