Previously, the Iowa resident’s biggest scores came last year after winning the $1,650 MSPT Tama for $87,694, and finishing 3rd at the $1,650  Heartland Poker Tour Iowa for $21,690. With his triumph in Missouri, Terry Ring now takes his live tournament earnings to $230,522.

Making his way through to the final table of nine was defending champion Roger Campbell, who commented, “I’m thinking, wow, I can’t believe that I am here again.” Last year he won the event for $131,681 but this time around his quest ended in 6th place for a $18,886 payday.
