Jay Kerbel

Event 2 was the second game on the schedule but one of the first that would award a trophy. It was a $400 Limit Omaha 8 tournament that drew a great 116-entry field and Jay Kerbel outlasted them all to pick up the outright win.

Kerbel earned $11,315 for the win after a tough heads-up battle against Ziya Rahim and dispatching a tough opponent in Joel Harwood.

Congrats to Jay and good luck tomorrow in the H.O.R.S.E. tournament!
