The PokerNews Live Reporting Team is at Thunder Valley to live report action from both the $1,700 Main Event and $3,250 High Roller, but those are just a couple of the dozen gold ring events at the stop. As such, we thought we’d profile some of the preliminary tournaments and those who struck it big.
In Event #6: $400 NLH Six-Handed, 101 entries generated a $33,330 prize pool paid out to the top 16 players. Among those to cash but fall short of the final table were Adam Demersseman (10th - $878), Harry Sellers (11th - $709), Vikenty Shegal (12th - $709), Arish Nat (13th - $591), Jeffrey Salmon (14th - $591), Brett Murray (15th - $591), and Ian Waldron (16th - $591).
Coming out on top was Jed Hoffman, who not only won $9,522 but also captured his fourth WSOP Circuit gold ring.
“It feels good. $10,000 and four rings,” Hoffman said after his win. Because of his work as a developer, Hoffman doesn’t get to travel much for poker.
“I can’t really chase it geographically so it’s cool to come to these series that are close to Reno,” Hoffman explained.
