Event 23 of the 2019 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open, the $25,500 RRPO High Roller (Re-Entry), surpassed its $1,000,000 guarantee as a field of 45 entries generated a prize pool of $1,111,500.
Only seven players cashed and following the money-bubble elimination of Anton Wigg, those remaining seven players had at least $44,460 locked up. Up top is $400,135 for the winner.
Lazaro Hernandez busted on the final hand of the night to Brock Wilson, which eliminated Hernandez in seventh place and gave Wilson the chip lead to close the day.
