Michael Schneider of Eagan, Minn., took home $48,425 for winning the Midwest Poker Classic at Running Aces Harness Park in Columbus.

This is Schneider’s largest cash since winning the Fall Poker Classic in 2012.

The final table was filled with fine players such as Matt Alexander, Kou Vang and Ed Janezich.

Seventh-place finisher Ryan Laplante continued his fantastic run after cashing six times at this year’s World Series. The main event generated a prize pool of $151,320 and drew 156 entries, down from last year likely because of the series being a month earlier.

Other standouts for the series include Matthew Williams, Amir “AT” Tavanae, Willam Records, Dan Shogren and Austin Diebel, all cashing three times in the 19-event series that included several small buy-in events as well as HORSE and pot-limit events.

CANTERBURY PARK: Robert O’Connell of Minneapolis won $44,891 and the Twin Cities Open at Canterbury Park in Shakopee.
The event had 178 entries and offered a $172,660 prize pool.

This month is the poker room’s signature event, the Fall Poker Classic, which runs Oct. 4-20.

The $1,100 main event begins at noon Oct. 18 with Day 1A as Day 1B is Oct. 19. Day 1B is Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. Go to canterburypark.com for more details.
