Thursday March 19, 2015 : LOS ANGELES POKER PRO WINS W.S.O.P. CIRCUIT MAIN EVENT
Bicycle Casino leg of WSOP ciruit attracts 669 entries.
Los Angeles poker pro Gevork Kasabyan is the latest champion on the World Series of Poker Circuit, having taken down the $1,675 buy-in Bicycle Casino main event for $205,720, a seat at the national championship and one of the coveted WSOP Circuit gold winner's rings.
The three-day event attracted 669 entries, generating a prize pool of over a million dollars, with the 247-hand final table completing the action with a heads up between Kasabyan and Californian player Adam Weinraub.
The heads up stage started with Kasabyan holding a massive 12 to 1 chip advantage over his opponent, but Weinraub managed to execute a treble double up within five hands, reducing his disadvantage to a more breakable 2 to 1.
It wasn't enough, however, and the heads up concluded with a Kasabyan victory in just 10 hands, sending the Californian home with the runner up prize of $127,295.
Other final table pay-days (all to Californians) were:
3 Martin Cohen $93,365
