David Vig outlasted Vu Troung and 101 other players to take down the annual Gutterball Open Poker Tournament on March 17. The DPT fields continue to grow with 75 entries for the Saturday $100 event and 102 entries for the $200 main event. Vu Troung got 2nd Steve Saville 3rd, Brandon Schmidt 4th, Troy Hagen, Jared Quast, Stephen March, James Odegaard, Justis Garrett, Jason Filbert and Andrew Knorr all got in the cash.
David jumped into the top 20 in the player of the year race and Brandon Schmidt moved into third place with his $1500 cash at the Gutter ball. The magic number for the top 100 player for our season ending free roll is 1000 points. Still time to make a move.
