On July 29, Potawatomi Bingo & Casino in Milwaukee hosted the World Poker Tour Regional Mid-Summer Classic, attracting 204 entrants to the $660 tournament for a $123,403 prize pool.
The WPT’s Vince Van Patten was one of the participants, but Colin Gordon eliminated the WPT ambassador short of the money, receiving a $500 bounty for the feat. In the end, local high-stakes Omaha player Scott Chupack defeated Jeremy Farkas ($21,960) to take home the $37,820 first-place prize. They were followed by Suey Wong, $14,030; Suren Dharanikota, $9,882; James Malan, $7,625; Ben Berlowski, $5,795; Michael Miller, $4,514; Jeffery Brown, $3,355; Rudi Hunek, $2,379, and Jesus Hernandez, $1,891
