The WSOP Circuit at Biloxi saw a local player take down the Main Event and it was Mohammad Moeini who went home a cool $106,101 better off after beating a field of 301 players. It wasn’t easy however as the 44 year old player from Gulfport had to come through a three hour heads up battle to seal the win. This is Mohammad Moeini’s turf and although it was his first ever Circuit gold ring he does play in this series regularly and is no stranger to the money seats, with this being his fifth cash placing and his biggest, his previous largest Circuit cash being $55,103.
He headed to the final table with the chip lead but it was by no means plain sailing as he played his way to victory. Mohammad Moeini is Iranian born and moved to the US over 20 years ago and is a hotel owner and this marks his greatest poker achievement, as on top of the ring and the payday he also bags his seat in the National Championships in May. The total prize pool at Biloxi for the main event was $451,000 with 33 players getting in on the money, and it was great to see a local player get the glory. The Circuit now moves to the Horseshoe Casino in Southern Indiana where 12 rings will be up for grabs.
