Cary Marshall

Tournament officials started off the day with a tribute to Cary Marshall, a beloved figure on the local poker scene in the Lake Tahoe/Reno area.

Marshall, who passed away in August, was a three-time WSOP Circuit ring winner, which includes a victory in the Harveys Tahoe Main Event in 2012. Marshall added to his legacy with a third-place finish in the WSOP Super Seniors event at the Rio in Las Vegas this summer, cashing in for a career-high $162,536 just weeks before his passing.

Marshall made a deep run in the Harveys Tahoe Main Event once again in 2017, going to the final table and finishing sixth for $28,373.
