Jeri Sieber set the tone for her Mother’s Day with a win and a $45,595 top prize in Tulsa. The mother of two chopped with Justin Gardenhire in the 2016 RunGood Hard Rock Tulsa $675 Main Event in the early hours of Sunday morning, taking home the money and etching her name on the RunGood Champions Cup.
Olivier Busquet started day two in the chip lead, but ultimately busted in the money in 24th place. By the time the final table started, Michael Sanders and Samantha Abernathy (both RunGood pros) were leading, and Siber was the second-shortest stack. She made up ground quickly, though, and was in second place by the time the table was narrowed to the final six. Momentum first swung her way when she eliminated Cherie Baber in ninth.
Her fortunes really took a turn when she knocked out Abernathy in sixth. Abernathy (Q♡, J♧) opened for a raise in level 24 and called a three-bet from Sieber. Sieber (A♤, A♧) shoved after Abernathy checked a 4♢, A♢, Q♧ flop; Abernathy called with second pair. The turn (10♤) and river (3♧) couldn’t do anything to touch the triple aces and Abernathy walked away with $7,929.
After her score, Sieber held about 40-percent of the chips and never looked back, taking down Vic Harris next in fifth place. Gardenhire eliminated Sanders in fourth and Rodney Spriggs was the only one left to face the two dominating players.
Spriggs was in a good position when he held a set of threes on a K♡, 5♤, 3♤ flop, but Sieber (6♡, 4♡) found a 7♡ on the river that pulled together a winning straight, sending Spriggs home with $19,328.
The final two players quickly struck a deal and it wasn’t long before a winner was decided. The last hand came when Gardenhire tried check-shoving a 5♧, 3♧ after a flop showed a promising J♧, 2♡, 6♡. Sieber called and the next two cards (J♢, 6♢) secured a set of jacks.
