Dan Sun Wins BLUFF MSPT Meskwaki, $77,103

Dan Sun of Cedar Rapids, Iowa earned his first major win Sunday night at Meskwaki Casino when he outlasted a 301-player field to take home $77,103 and the RF Moeller Diamond Championship bracelet.
Sun, a Software Engineer, was anxious to close the deal, he had previously taken 3rd and 4th in Heartland Poker Tour events. In order to do so, he would have to get through one of the most respected players and best closers in the Midwest.
His heads up opponent would be Jeremy Dresch (@jerdrescha) of Fridley, MN. Dresch has earned an MSPT title and three HPT titles. He had an MSPT runner-up finish as well.
On the last hand saw, Dresch raised pre-flop with 8-2 offsuit and Sun called. The flop ran A-8-3. Dresch opened, Sun raised, Dresch shoved, Sun tank called with 8-7. The turn was a 5 giving Dresch a gutter-ball draw. The river ran clean for Sun allowing his 7-kicker to play.
This was the 2nd MSPT at Meskwaki, each event has successfully reached the $300K Guaranteed prize pool. The next $300K Event at Meskwaki will be held Oct. 27 - Nov. 4.
The MSPT will make its first ever stop at Grand Falls Casino Resort in Larchwood, IA (Sioux Falls, SD) August 11-19.
