On December 14, the Wynn Winter Classic invited players to compete in the $400 Limit Omaha 8/B, a tournament that attracted 103 runners and offered up a $35,535 prize pool.

That was paid out to the top 11 finishers, meaning two players cashed but fell short of the final table. They were Joshua Rhodes and Andrew Donabedian, who each took home $959 for finishing in 11th and 10th place respectively.

2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event fourth-place finisher Garry Gates was at the final table, ultimately finishing in eighth place for $1,222.

With three players remaining, a deal was struck that saw poker veteran "Miami" John Cernuto take third for $5,700, Michael Parizen second for $8,543, and four-time bracelet winner and 2006 WSOP Player of the Year Jeff Madsen claim the title and $8,678 in prize money.
