Over the past ten days, Reno’s Atlantis Casino Resort Spa has played host to the Card Player Poker Tour and on Monday, March 25th, the $1,080 Main Event was concluded. Emerging atop of the 190 player field was John Miner of Carson City, who picked up $45,153 for his first place finish.
John Miner has now earned $135,341 from live tournaments, with his past accolades including a 2nd place finish at the 2011 WPT Regional Western Poker Challenge for $46,932, and victory at the 2012 WSOP Circuit Lake Tahoe for $19,547. Following his latest win in Reno, Miner commented:
“It feels very good to win, I’m glad that the Atlantis put it on for us. I’m very excited to make a good showing for the hometown. It was a tough field, everybody played very well and it was definitely challenging, but I felt very confident most of the time.”
The $1,080 Main Event attracted a whole slew of pros to the tournament, including such players as 2007 WSOP Main Event Champion Jerry Yang, David Randall, Steve Brecher, Charles Moore, and Andrew Howard. In the end, however, John Miner would go heads-up against his friend Jerry Morrell with the duo then agreeing to split the prize money and play just one hand all-in pre-flop.
Miner was subsequently dealt A-Q to Morrell’s Q-2, and after the board fell K-J-8-3-7, Miner was crowned the 2013 Poker Tour Atlantis Reno champion. When asked what he intended to do with the money, Miner replied; “..give it to my wife. I’ll probably also play some more poker and try to win some more tournaments.”
The final table payouts were as follows: 1. John Miner — $45,153 2. Jerry Morrell — $45,153 3. Jeffrey Spruitenburg — $21,195 4. Ralph Kingan — $14,928 5. Billy Lee — $11,519 6. Tanya Kirk — $8,754 7. Dustin Fox — $6,819 8. Matt Kramer — $5,068 9. Steven Michaelis — $3,594
