Bill Criego has done the unlikely over the last week and a half by winning consecutive Wednesday evening tournaments at Canterbury Park. The Wednesday tourney is a $235 buy-in and starts at 6:30PM each week. Players start with 12,000 tournament chips before add-on with 30-minute levels.
Criego achieved the feat by outlasting some deep fields. On July 27, there were 85 entrants and Criego took it down for $4,930. One week later, Criego did it again. This time outlasting a 102-player field earning $5,916. $10,846 is a nice one-week run.
Criego clearly knows how to close when the situation arises. He now has 5 Player of the Year cashes, 3 of which are 1st place finishes.
