After three days of activity at Harrah’s Cherokee North Carolina, Zuheir Daniel topped the leviathan area of the Monster Stack or Event #7 on the routine of the recurring WSOP Circuit stop for his largest-ever texas hold’em cash as well as his first-ever gold ring from the series.
The three-day $400 buy-in competition drew an area of 1,725 entrants who crushed the $300,000 and also created a reward swimming pool of $569,250. The Monster Stack featured two beginning flights and also one more day of action. Day 2 of the occasion was used Thursday at the host gambling establishment. There were just 89 runners for the title of the substantial area of greater than 1,700 competitors that registered into the tournament, considering the gold ring, the lion’s share of the cash, and the accolades accompanying the champion.
The top 186 finishers went home with cash from the Monster Stack. Minimum payments began with $588. Yet all eyes got on the leading prize of $94,002 and also the piece of WSOP Circuit fashion jewelry.
Day 2 of the Monster Stack began with Wayne Lovell as the chip leader. The player registered right into the event through its initial beginning flight as well as bagged as well as identified an outstanding pile of 1.642 million at the end of Day 1A. Lovell, a two-time gold ring victor, ultimately completed third for $43,429.
Who’s the Winner?
Daniel does not play poker for a living. The 52-year-old from Hilton Head, South Carolina is an entrepreneur. However, the player told WSOP staff after last night’s victory that he plans to begin playing more tournaments.
Daniel went on to say that he has been playing almost all week and that while he might have made a lot of mistakes, he has also learned a lot.
The newest WSOP Circuit champion was amongst the chip leaders right into a challenging final table that featured former gold ring winners, including Lovell and also Rex Clinkscales. It was, in fact, Clinkscales that led the last 10 into the closing phase of the competition with 7.95 million. The eventual winner held 5.63 million at the time, great for the 3rd biggest stack.
Daniel’s ride to victory was a bumpy one. The player was down to just a couple of big blinds at one point. However, a series of good hands helped him double up and then triple up to regain momentum and claim the title in the end.
Daniel faced Harold Kizzire heads-up. With nine WSOP Circuit and four WSOP cashes, Kizzire was certainly a scary and experienced opponent. However, the Monster Stack title was Daniel’s to win and the player sent his final opponent to the rail to claim what was his. Kizzire had to settle for a consolation prize of $58,518 for his deep run.
