Boris Kasabov of Houston, Texas is the latest World Series of Poker Circuit champion and ring winner. Kasabov outlasted a field of 271 players to win the 2019 WSOP Circuit IP Biloxi Event #10 $1,700 Main Event Championship. Kasbov defeated Ben Thomas heads-up for the title and first place prize worth nearly $100,000.


As the lyric goes, "The prophet tried to ban that boogie sound, but the degenerate the faithful and that crazy Cabash sound filled the square." The Clash were already on their way to becoming a legendary and seminal punk band, but Rock the Casbah had crossover

pop" appeal which made them super famous among the normal and squares. The punks and other kids from the working class ranks always felt Joe Strummer and the Clash were their own personal superheroes. Almost fifty years later, it's still a powerful anthem.

In the case of Boris Kasabov, I hope he's blasting the song all night at his victory party. Kasabov became the latest winner on the WSOP Circuit when he took down the Main Event in Biloxi to ship a small mound of cash and a Circuit ring.

The World Series of Poker Circuit event continued its year-round touring schedule with a stop in Biloxi, Mississippi. For the last 200 or more years, the Mississippi River had been an integral part of gambling lore and history. Gamblers traveled up and down the might river at gambling joints between St. Louis and New Orleans. Gambling boats were the norm back then with some of the highest-stakes gambling action in the late 19th Century.

These days, the Mississippi Gulf coast is a focal point for gambling in the south. Just head down toward the delta and look for the beaches of nearby Mississippi and you'll be sure to find no shortage of gambling joints of all types of variety along the Gulf of Mexico.

The 2019 WSOP Circuit hit up the luxurious IP Biloxi in Biloxi with a swanky bay view. No less than ten events were on the schedule including the anchor event.

The $1,700 buy-in Main Event, also known as Event #10, attracted 281 runners. Only the top 43 places and lucky souls had a shot at cashing. The total prize pool topped $425K with the majority of the cheesecake set aside to the champion. The winner would walk with a lion's share that was a tad under $100K, which is pretty dank for a modest $1,700 buy-in event.

The final table of nine included Boris Kasabov, Ben Thomas, Hamid Izadi, Jeremy Eyer, Brett Apter, Brad Myers, Benny Champlin, Wayne Boyd, and Philip Walsh.

Marshall White bubbled the final table in tenth place.

Notable players and familiar names who cashed in the 2019 WSOP Circuit IP Biloxi Main Event aka Event #10 included Bob Beck, BJ McBrayer, Luther Train, Andy Schwartz, Tru Vo, John Hayes, Rami Owera, Stephen Bierman, Neil Scott, Bill Lester, Carlos Guerreo, CJ Domangue, Greg Whitworth, Josh Johnson, Dustin Stewart, Mo Moeini Mike Lech, Ron Layne,Kyle Cartwright, Chris Davis, Aaron Gamino, David Walters, Larry Riggs, Joan Hartwell, Blake Barousse, Bob Elliot, Billy Phillips, and Charles Brady.
