Players from all over the country flocked to Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Mississippi for the inaugural SPT tournament series. For some, it was a reunion of sorts. For others, it was the first time playing in an arena of their peers. But for all, it was a great time of poker, camaraderie and success.
The series consisted of 15 events over five days in the beautiful newly remodeled Horseshoe Casino poker room. The room features wallpaper with photos from past World Series of Poker events, table side food service and electrical outlets at every player’s seat around the table.
Members of Team SPT, Tom McEvoy, Dennis Phillips, Marsha Waggoner, Susie Isaacs and Mark Kroon all did very well in the series. All of them had at least one cash and both Tom and Mark won in different events.
The SPT main event hosted 121 players over a four-day series with a prize pool of $65,500 up for grabs. Our final table cashers were: Mike Buddy of Fort Louis, KY, Mitchell Allen of Lilbourn, MO, Garry Faile of Fort Mill, SC, Sam Brackstone of Cordova, TN, Ed Kinney of Virginia Beach, VA, Randy Ferguson of Ohatchee, AL, Saeed Nia of Memphis, TN, Charles Wolfe of Benton, AR, Glen Biddle of Centerville, AR, and Phyllis Patterson of Knoxville, TN
After a long day of poker, our victor was Glen Biddle of Centerville, AR with a prize win of $16,432 and a WSOPC Main Event Seat for the upcoming WSOPC at Harrah’s later this month.
We look forward to our upcoming events in a location near you!
