Event no. 4 at the Card Player Poker Tour Wynn Las Vegas drew a total of 168 entrants, each putting up the $300 buy-in to build a prize pool of $44,000. A total of 18 players made the money, but the last player standing was William Schonscheck, who earned $11,000 for his first career tournament title.

Schonscheck defeated tournament circuit regular Christina Lindley heads-up, with an unavoidable cooler sealing the deal. On the final hand Schonsheck held a modest chip lead when he picked up ASpade SuitAClub Suit and Lindley found pocket queens. All of the money went in and the board run out didn’t change anything, ensuring that the pot and the title were Schonsheck’s. Lindley earned $7,920 for her second-place finish.

In order to meet the $100,000 guarantee, the $440 buy-in no-limit event has to only draw 258 players. Nearly that many turned out for the first starting day alone, with 213 entries by the end of registration adding $82,000 to the prizepool.

A total of 26 players from the first starting day survived and will combine with those who make it through day 1B to play down to a champion on Friday. Among those who made it through are 2011 World Series of Poker main event fifth-place finisher Phil Collins and recent CPPT Wynn finalist Jimmy Tran.
