Jim Quinn – Event 7 Champion

Jim Quinn played both flights of the Bar Poker Open Championship as well as every tournament since Friday to no avail. “I was doing horrible.”

Congro on the other hand final tabled the very first Event 1, ultimately finishing in fourth place ($3,122). It’s been a nice series for Congro as he added another $2,700, plus the four green chip bounties he collected to his winnings.

Premier Poker League owner Mario Lisojo was happy about his result because he now has a five year streak of cashing in a Bar Poker Open event.
