Ok, we’re way behind on the news. Time to catch up. We’ll file this one under “Week in Review.”
Despite Federated Sports+Gaming/Epic doing everything they can to run their business into the ground, the Heartland Poker Tour managed to hold a successful 100th event at the River City Casino in St. Louis.
A total of 328 entered the event, including Phil Hellmuth, Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler, Chris Moneymaker, and Greg Raymer.
When the proverbial dust settled, Will Failla walked away with the title and $119,064.
The HPT win caps off a year run for Failla. He becomes the first legit “pro” to win a HPT event, and the win pushes his career tourney earnings to over $3M.
