While PokerNews is here offering live updates for the $1,100 Main Event, we’d be remiss if we didn’t tell you about some of the side events that have taken place out over the past week for the Showdown Series here at Running Aces Casino.
In Event #2: $250 NLH Sunday Feast, 251 runners created a $50,200 prize pool that was paid out to the top 27 players.
Among those to cash but fall short of the final table were Steve Belland (12th - $904), Howard Dion (15th - $753), Luke Blindert (16th - $648), Joel Smith (24th - $462), and Jeff Grimes (26th - $422).
In the end, it was Minnesota's Shane Nelson who collected every chip in play to capture the MSPT Trophy, along with a $8,585 payday.
