A three-way war turned on Wisconsin’s Monte Schmidt beating Florida’s Steven Fuhrman in a near three-million chip pot to open up a huge chip lead on Fuhrman and Jason Phannenstiel. With Schmidt far out in front, the three players decided to make a deal to end the tournament leaving Schmidt as the 2016 PPC Poker Tour Harrah’s North Kansas City Main Event Champion.
Schmidt takes the title, $10,000, a $5,000 PPC Aruba Package, a spot in the PPC Champion of Champions Tournament at Maryland Live! Casino, a pair of Blue Shark Optics Glasses and apparel from Kicker Problem/Kicker Power.
Jason Phannenstiel finishes in second place also winning $10,000 and a $5,000 PPC Aruba Package. Steven Fuhrman takes third place taking home $12,299.
Congratulations to 2016 PPC Poker Tour Harrah’s North Kansas City Main Event Champion – Monty Schmidt!
