We Have A Winner!

Our first event here in Reno was a smashing success, drawing more players than the casino has seen for this particular event in years. A good time was had by all, and the event ended in a surprise nine way chop with Ivan Zarate taking the lion’s share of the winnings.

Ivan Zarate wins the first event of our iNinja Poker Tour series at Atlantis Reno with the big side of a chop for $2,300.

The event featured a $200 buy-in with $50 of that going to a bounty on each player. Zarate ended up with $2,300 on top of the bounties he collected on his way to the final table. This brings Zarate’s tournament winnings to nearly $70,000. The rest of the table received $809 each in addition to the bounties they collected.

The field was an impressive 79 players for a small bounty event on a Thursday, and players loved playing in a room with a view of the high sierras and praised the structure of the event as well.

A satellite went off with a nice crowd as well, with 53 entrants competing for 11 seats into the $40k guaranteed event starting on Friday.

The Resurrection Begins!

Cards are in the air and we have passed 70 players with a ton of time left in registration in the $200 buy-in Warm Up Bounty event ($50 bounties). The room looks great and players are excited. We’ve also seen the reveal of the prelim event trophies and the first appearance by our Pink Ninja!
