$125 NLH Partner Event

The final three teams agreed to do an ICM chop, and Max Zelensky and Kevin Hess were the first of the three teams to be eliminated. Richard Garza and Harry Stanley went up against Team Doppelgangers, Max Brown and Ryan Leonis, and they battled for a while before deciding to chop the trophies. There were two of them, so each team took one home. Since Team Doppelgangers finished ahead ICM-wise, they signed for first place and secured the $600 Main Event seat. Congratulations!

Brown and Leonis hail from St. Carlos, California and Portland, Oregon, respectively, and play "professionally-ish". They play both cash games and tournaments, and are regulars on the Run it Up Reno scene. Leonis now has two wins here and five cashes - all final tables. 

Garza and Stanley are regulars here in Reno at the Peppermill. Garza is a mechanical engineer and Stanley is a machinist. Both gentlemen love to play poker and have been in the industry for a long time. Garza said, "We were the oldest guys playing here! For old farts we did okay."

Congratulations to everyone for their deep runs in this fun event!
