Jeremy Dresch emerged victorious at the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) Columbus, beating a field of 344 players for $83,045 first place prize.

With a $332,180 prize pool at stake, Dresch played solid poker on both days to register the biggest score of his career.

Commenting on his latest win, the 42 year-old said:

“Long time coming. I never look beyond the weekend; I’ll decide what to play on Wednesdays. I didn’t even know this tournament was going on, I had no idea. My buddy told me earlier in the week, so I played it.”

Dresch was on 18th place on Day 2 with just 59 players remaining. 36 players walked home with a return on their investment. These included Jason Seitz in 34th ($2,093), Peixin Liu in 28th ($2,093), Joe Matheson in 18th ($3,322), Mike Schneider in 15th ($4,651), and Blake Bohn in 13th ($4,651).

10 players made it to the final table and after a series of eliminations, only Dresch and Victor Peppe remained to fight it out for the coveted title.

The final hand of the heads-up duel was played when Dresch (5-5) beat Peppe (J-6) to seal the title.
