Card Player Poker Tour Choctaw -- Day 9 Side Event Results
John Reading Wins PLO Event, Satellites Award Tons of Main Event Seats
Friday saw the Card Player Poker Tour Choctaw main event getting off to a great start with 308 entrants for day 1A and many more predicted for day 1B. But while that event began there was still a ton of other action going on in the Choctaw’s tournament area, including the conclusion of the $1,080 pot-limit Omaha event and three huge satellites. Here’s a look at day nine’s side event results:
Event 15 – $1,080 Pot-Limit Omaha
Day 2 of the CPPT pot-limit Omaha championship saw 11 players return to battle it out for the lion’s share of the $50,350 prize pool.
A number of notables were in the mix including Justin Gardenhire, Travis Rice and Huy Nguyen, but it the end the last man standing was John Reading. For the win, the Rochester, Minnesota resident earned the $18,881 first-place prize and the CPPT winner’s trophy.
Reading is currently a college student, but has plenty experience playing heads-up pot-limit Omaha cash games online. That experience came in handy in his tough heads-up battle with Huy Nguyen. Both players held chip leads of roughly 8-to-1 at some point in the match, but after hours of grinding Reading finally sealed the deal.
Here is a look at the complete final table payout information:
Main Event Satellites
The tournament room stayed packed throughout the day, with three huge satellites taking up any tables that weren’t being utilized by day 1A of the $1,080 CPPT main event. All told, Friday’s satellites awarded 71 seats into the main event.
The first was a $125+$25 mega satellite that began at 10 a.m. that drew 254 entrants, building a prize pool of $30,800 that awarded 28 seats.
The second was a $100+$25 super satellite with $50 rebuys that drew 104 players, whose rebuys and add-ons built a $27,645 prizepool. In the end, 25 more players won seats into the main event.
The final satellite of the day was another $100+$25 super satellite with $50 rebuys. This running drew 89 players, whose rebuys and add-ons built up a $20,419 prize pool which awarded 18 more main event seats.
