Last week, dozens of KOntenders players from across the country converged on the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas for the $200,000 Guaranteed Bar Poker Open.
The deepest run by a KOntender in the Main Event was Steven Wardell, from our South Jersey region, who finished in 20th place for a $1,427 payday.
Others who cashed in the Main Event included Wayne Dull (South Jersey) for $639, Ed Lockwood (Austin) for $550, and Richard Davila (Austin) for $500.
In the Green Chip Bounty, Robin Resnick (South Jersey) finished in 23rd for $125 (not including bounties). Karen Thompson and Sal Biancardi, both from North Carolina, also cashed in this tournament.
In Event 2, a “Cheap and Deep” NLHE event with 219 entries, Paul Resnick (South Jersey) finished 14th for $269.
Many of our players had success elsewhere during the trip, whether at three-card poker, slots, poker cash games, or other tournaments outside of the Open.
