Ship it to Brooklyn, yo! Asher Conniff first made a name for himself down in Atlantic City when he binked a WPT event a couple of years ago. And now he can add his name to the illustrious list of World Series of Poker Circuit champs.

The WSOP Circuit's latest stop was in the middle of the Strip in Las Vegas. Bally's is one of those old-school properties that seems to have been around forever. It's one of those places where your grandma loves to play slots.

The Bally's in Vegas hosted a WSOP Circuit series with the Main Event as the anchor event. That included a $1,700 buy-in championship caliber tournament. It attracted 607 runners who wanted a shot at a mound of cash and the coveted piece of bling. Not too many people can say they won a Circuit ring, but there's one more name added to that list.

Only the top 63 places paid out at Bally's but there was a special added prize: a golden ticket to the Global Casino Championship. The winner would earn a freeroll into the GCC.

The final table included Asher Conniff, Joshua Suyat, Justin Young, Stan Webb, William Wolf, James Fricker, Simon Deadman, and Dan Park.

The final table included Asher Conniff, Joshua Suyat, Justin Young, Stan Webb, William Wolf, James Fricker, Simon Deadman, and Dan Park. It was eight Americans and one Brit at the final table with Simon Deadman representing the United Kingdom.

Dan Park hit the road first, followed the Simon Deadmon in seventh place. With six to go, it was all Team USA. Jimmy Fricket hit the bricks in sixth place, while Billy Wolf's run ended in fifth place.

With four remaining, it looked like an inevitable showdown between Justin Young and Asher Conniff. Stan Webb bowed out in fourth place which paid out a tad under $65K.

Justin Young went as far as third place before he said goodbye. Young banked $87,344 for a third-place finish. Young's elimination set up the heads-up bout between a Hawaiian and a dude from Brooklyn.

Joshua Suyat and Asher Conniff were the final two standing. They were playing for a pile of cash and bragging rights as the Bally's Main Event champ.

Alas, the poker gods were smiling upon the kid from Brooklyn. Joshua Suyat bounced in second place. The Hawaiian banked $119,447 for second place. Not too shabby, eh?

Asher Conniff shipped the tournament for a hefty score worth $193,147. He also took down a coveted WSOP Circuit ring and got a freeroll into the Global Casino Championship.

Conniff now passes $2.2 million in career earnings. In the Spring 2015, Conniff took down a WPT Borgata Spring Poker Open event at the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ for $974K. That final table included Tony Dunst (yes, that Tony Dunst) and the legendary Carlos Mortensen.

Conniff's most noteworthy score this year was nearly $60K when he was a runner-up at a WSOP Circuit event High Roller at the Rio back in February.

Brazil's Vinicius Polpeta bubbled off the WSOP Circuit Bally's final table in tenth place.

Among the other notables who went deep and cashed in the WSOP Circuit Bally's included... Tony Dunst, Steven Grybas, Bobby Kuhn, Rambo Halpern, Alex Ziskin, Jesse Sylvia, Kevin Yu, Jimmy Sievers, Jonathan Gerrick, Peyman Ahmadi, Sean Lee, Chris Leong, Tamas Lendvai, Mikey Sinclair, David Ormsby, Ryan Olisar, Erik Christensen, Jimmy Jennings, Corey Hochman, Brian Yoon, Lokesh Garg, Cliff Goldkind, Vladimir Mefodichev, Jong Jin, Grady Suneson, Julian Parmann, Steven Baysa, Matty Wantman, Saiswaroop Mudduluru, Spencer Champlin, Michal Nahum, Bobby Cote, Alemu Makonen, Scott Stewart, Jesse Yaginuma, Zachary Donovan, Robert Calhoun, Zinan Xu, Sami Shurbaji, Andrew Dean, Ashley Sleeth, Brett Shaffer, Robert Cheung, Danny Gonzales, Anne Bui, Lisa Hamilton, Sean Yu, Ricky Carlson, Leopoldo Araneta, Ankush Mandavia, Dick Langdon, and Ryan Leng.
