December 16, 2017

Level 6 (300/600/75)Total Entrants: 266Day 1C Entrants: 104 Video Poker professional and live tournament enthusiast Greg Jennings (pictured) would rather brick 100 consecutive spins than miss a RG Main Event. Jennings travels frequently for tournaments and found himself in Las Vegas and St. Louis earlier this month.  At the Bellagio Five Diamond Classic, Jennings earned his fair share of hand pays by cashing three times and finishing in the top-10 with each result.
