PGT Mixed Games II continued on Saturday at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada with Event #3: $5.100 10-Game Mini-Championship. The tournament drew a field of 72 entries and play reached heads-up play at the end of Day 1.

Philip Sternheimer has more than a 2-to-1 chip lead with 7,500,000 to David Prociak's 3,300,000. Each took turns as the chip leader over the course of the final table, with Prociak getting the better of Sternheimer during a round of Badugi to pull ahead. Soon after, Sternheimer returned the favor and went on a Razz rush to reclaim the chip lead.

The field of 72 entrants created a prize pool of $360,000 and the final 11 players earned a piece of it. Max Pescatori just missed out, busting on the money bubble. Jerry Wong (11th), David "ODB" Baker (10th), Maxx Coleman (9th), and Eli Elezra (8th) fell shy of the final table.

Hal Rotholz began the final table with just one big bet and busted quickly in seventh place. Alex Livingston fell in sixth a little while later, finding himself on the losing end of a few multi-way Omaha Hi-Lo hands before making his final stand in Limit Hold'em with ace-five. Sternheimer looked him up with king-jack and rivered Broadway to eliminate Livingston.

Jeremy Ausmus was the next to go, falling in fifth place during Stud Hi-Lo when Seth Perlman made a flush on the river. Perlman, however, was still short-stacked and departed shortly thereafter during Razz. Bradley Ruben fell in third place when he committed his short stack with king-queen in No-Limit Hold'em, but chip leader Sternheimer woke up with pocket aces and held to score the elimination.
