Peebles wins Potawatomi poker event in Wisconsin



On July 28, the Potawatomi Bingo & Casino in Milwaukee hosted its $100K Mid-Summer Classic, which attracted 200 players and generated 49 rebuys for a $109,800 prize pool.

One notable in attendance was Eddie Blumenthal, who has $901,386 in career World Series of Poker winnings, including two seventh-place finishes this summer (Event 15 $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. for $28,778 and Event 22 $1,500 pot-limit Omaha). Unfortunately, Blumenthal couldn’t get anything going in his home state.

After more than 14 hours of play, Thomas Peebles emerged victorious over Paul Hendricks in heads-up play to win the $30K first-place prize. Hendricks earned $23,802.
