On Tuesday, Jason Somerville’s 2015 Run It Up! Reno festival kicked off with the first two events of the schedule. First up was the $125 Tuesday Takeoff No-Limit Hold’em that started at midday, and then the $85 All-In-or-Fold No-Limit Hold’em capped the night as the evening affair.
Roy Peters Wins Tuesday Takeoff
Roy Peters was one of 170 entries in the opening event. When it came time for the final table, Peters sat fourth in chips amongst the final nine and was looking to pad his poker résumé that consisted of nearly $175,000 in live tournament earnings. As it turned out, Peters found himself as the last competitor standing when the dust settled and earned himself the $5,885 top prize and winner’s trophy.
Also reaching the final table was Jesse Capps (3rd – $2,185), Dan O’Brien (4th – $1,539), William Recker (5th – $1,188), Jason Unsain (6th – $903), Skip Ferguson (7th – $703), Jesse Fullen (8th – $523), and Lance Donnell (9th – $371). The tournament generated a prize pool of $19,000. Full Content @www.pokernews.com
