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 #3: $185 NLH Multi-Day Deep Stack, 443 runners created a $64,235 prize pool that was paid out to the top 45 players.
Among those to cash but fall short of the final table were Fransisco Ramirez (10th - $1,028), Zack Hayes (14th - $835), Chris Nelson (20th - $604), Matt Wolff (24th - $520), and Brian Soja (38th - $353).
In the end, it was Iowa's Blake Holmes who collected every chip in play to capture the MSPT Trophy, along with a $10,424 payday.
