Richard Finberg

While the Poker Night in America Main Event played through the final level of their night, Travis Hartshorn and Richard Finberg battled for the Event 30 title. They exchanged the chip lead a few times and the blinds were just about to go up when the final hand played out.

The action was missed, as we were collecting chip counts as the bags were coming out in the PNIA Main Event but what was caught, was Hartshorn celebrating with pocket aces tabled in front of him. Finberg’s hand was already in the muck and with Hartshorn having his opponent covered, the PPO title was his.

Richard Finberg will be denied another piece of PPO hardware but he’ll take home $10,000 for his final table run.
