We are a about a month and a half away from the beginning of the poker communities’ most celebrated time of the year, the World Series of Poker (WSOP). But, before the WSOP action begins there are still 3 more Circuit Events to go. Currently, four of the 12 events of the Harrah’s Indiana Circuit have been completed and the fifth event, a $550 No Limit Hold’Em event and the sixth event, the Ladies No Limit Hold’Em tournament are in progress.
Event 1 of the Indiana Circuit was the $340 No Limit Hold’Em event. The $34,000 first prize was taken down by David Burch. This win was Burch’s fourth cash in WSOP Circuit events and his first major tournament win. Event 2 was an interesting game, half No Limit Hold’Em and half Pot Limit Omaha; not surprising these two were paired together because they are the two most popular poker games. This event was also a $340 dollar buy-in and the $12,000 first prize was taken home by Nima Hasannejad for his first tournament cash and victory.
The 3rd event was a $550 No Limit Hold’Em event with 261 entrants. At the end of the event it was Craig Brumfield who was crowned victorious for a $38,000 payday; his first WSOP cash and victory. The 4th event was another $340 No Limit Hold’Em tournament. This event had 622 entrants, translating into a $49,000 first place take which was won by Tim Laws. It was his third WSOP Circuit cash and his first major tournament victory.
Look for updates to come on the WSOP and finishing up the WSOP Circuit season.
