Congratulations to Tai Reyes-Purpero for winning himself a Pro-Am qualifier seat to the filmed event to be hosted by PokerGO this December! Tai started Sunday with one point with a cash in the $185 DeepStack event earlier this week. The Casino Champion point race was wide open, with each side event winner at the top spots holding 25 points each. At the end of Sunday, Mark Feinberg seemed to be the only threat that could top Tai if he had placed 3rd or better in the closing event, but ultimately ended up tying with Tai for points but generated less total cash earned to determine the tie-breaker. None of the other main event final tablists were in contention with Tai, as none had cashed in any events earlier this week, leaving the 2nd place Main Event finisher with 25 points, just shy of the 26 points that Tai had collected.
Congratulations, Tai! We know you will represent the San Diego Card Sharks well!
