The WSOP Circuit headed to sunny Southern California for its latest stop in Los Angeles. The Bicycle Casino hosted the WSOP Circuit with the Main Event attracting 705 runners. After two days of nonstop action, only 11 hopefuls remain. Owen ‘ocrowe' Crowe is the big stack as play heads into the final day. David the Dragon, Kevin Gimble, and Kristy Arnett are among those still alive and in the hunt for a first-place prize worth $217K and a coveted Circuit ring.
Bling time in SoCal. Who's gonna slide the ring on their finger? The World Series of Poker Circuit headed to the outskirts of Los Angeles for the latest installment of the WSOPC. Yup! The Bike hosted a WSOP Circuit event. The WSOP marketing gurus came up a great gimmick this season: 12 rings in 12 days. The current season featured a series lasting 12 days with 12 different chances to win a Circuit ring.
The WSOP Circuit Main Event at The Bike had a $1,675 price tag. A total of 705 runners took a shot with two opening flights. Only 11 players were left standing at the conclusion of Day 2. Canadian pro Owen Crowe bagged up the most chips with 11 remaining. The infamous ‘ocrowe' has 2.7M. Tom Braband is close by in second with 2.53M and Brett Murray is currently third overall with 1.9M.
Local hero, David "The Dragon" Pham, is still alive. It's gonna take a lot to take out a dragon on his home turf. Pham bagged up 1.9M, which was good for fourth overall.
Day 1B chipleader Kristy Arnett is still alive, but she's among the short stacks still in the hunt for the ring.
First place pays out $216,790. Huge different between ninth place and the champion, so the final table is where all the cheesecake is at!
Also still remaining... Martin Carnero, Kevin Gimble, Adam Swan, Nick Palma, Kristy Arnett, Adam Miller, and super-shortstacked Scott Saunders.
Ben Keeline and D.J. Alexander busted late on Day 2. They both cashed.
Action for the WSOP Circuit Main Event resumes at 1pm local time and they'll play down to a champion.
