There's a new joint leader sitting on top of the WSOP Circuit ring leader board and that man is Chris Reslock. There's always plenty of talk surrounding the big names of the circuit such as Kurt Jewell, Mark Smith, Kyle Cartwright and the of course the current all time champion Alex Masek. However, Masek is now joined at the top of the pile by Reslock who won his 6th circuit ring at the circuit event at Harrah's Philadelphia this week. Reslock dominated the whole tournament at the $580 Texas Holdem no limit tournament winning the ring in style and making circuit history. As well as that little piece of history he also made $18,200. Chris Reslock is a retired taxi driver/owner from New Jersey and this was his second gold ring since March this year when he won the no limit Hold'em event at Caesar's Atlantic City. he play his game on the East coast and proving his worth at the felt, this was only his third appearance in a circuit event this year! He is also the proud owner of a WSOP bracelet and has amassed over $1,000,000 in WSOP tournament winnings and is looking to add to that as he is in great shape to get to the National Championships.
How Reslock Won Ring Number Six
WSOP Circuit Event #6 had a total prize pool of $65,000 and pulled in 130 players with players beating the bubble pretty early on during the day. It was almost directly after that bubble had burst that Reslock starting upping the tempo and in the space of just over an hour 8 players were eliminated, with Reslock doing most of the damage. After that period of utter destruction by Reslock the field was cut down to just 4 players and by the time play ended there were just the 3 with Reslock owning over 50% of the chips. Day 2 resumed, well if you can call it a day, as it took under an hour for Chris Reslock to complete the job that he had started on day one. Sean Small went out in third place leaving heads up between Reslock and Jonathon Hilton and just a few hands into heads up it was over. Reslock is now in prime position to become the Casino Champion at Harrah's Philadelphia and should he win that he will be heading to the WSOPC National Championships. It's all pretty rosy in Reslock's camp at the moment and we certainly hope that he makes it to the nationals.
