The spring 2016 RGPS Hard Rock wrapped up in the early morning hours on Mother's Day in poetic fashion. First, the Main Event final table featured not one or two but four female players. Several railbirds remarked that it was the best looking final table they'd ever seen.
Two of those ladies are RG pros Samantha Abernathy and Mina Greco. The remaining two, Cheri Baber and Jeri Sieber, are both Oklahoma residents. Baber is a regular at the Hard Rock poker room while Sieber is from Norman and considers Riverwind her home court. The final few levels of the Main Event played out in the early morning hours on Sunday, and whether you call it coincidence, serendipity, or fate, it was certainly fitting that a mother would go on to win the event.
That mother, Jeri Sieber, chopped the money with RG pro Justin Gardenhire heads-up, but the two agreed to play it out for the trophy. The heads up battle ended quickly, however, and Sieber would ultimately lay claim to the RG ME trophy and $44,458 in prize money. After her win, Sieber said she owes some of the credit to the players in her regular $2/$5 NLHE game at RiverWind. PokerNews was there to capture all the action, which you can read here, including the official results and payouts.

As always, RunGood would like to thank you, the players, for coming out and making our series so much fun. You are the reason we do what we do! Many thanks also to the staff at Hard Rock for all their hard work, we couldn't do it without you!
If you're ready for more action, the RGPS returns to the Horseshoe Council Bluffs on Wednesday for another five days of tournaments, bounties, guarantees, and Fireball Whiskey giveaways. With the 2016 WSOP right around the corner, we bet you could use another five-day poker party before the summer grind begins. Hope to see you there!
