Tyler Morris Wins Choctaw WSOP Circuit Main Event
Tyler Morris from Texas took down the WSOP Circuit Main Event and with it a very nice paycheck for a cool $369,503. The event saw a staggering amount of players hitting the felt with a total of 1,428 entrants making it the 4th biggest event in WSOP Circuit history and getting 2014 off to a brilliant start. As well as that big check Morris also won the coveted Circuit gold ring and of course a seat in the National Championships in Atlantic City. It was his first ever Circuit win and his biggest payday by far and after battling his way through to the final day he joined 15 other players all trying to get their hands on a very impressive WSOP Circuit 1st placed prize.
Although the final day started with 16 players it wasn't long before that was cut down to the final table 9 and after 2 hours at that table Julie Walker became the first casualty and the last woman standing went to the rails, albeit $36,650 better off. From then on it was Morris who simply sat back, played a cool game and watched as other players left the table with circuit regular Michael Sanders leaving in 8th place and Jesse Capps not long after in 7th. Joshua Evans left in 6th and Jeff Gibralter in 5th with $97,204. After Harwell and Walters went in 4th and 3rd respectively it left Penka and Morris to play for the big first place prize, and after a few hours of sharing the chips it was Morris who eventually came out on top. That concluded an extremely successful event at Choctaw and it was Chris Bowen who came out as casino champion after a string of good results. The Circuit now moves on to Tunica with a spring in its step and we're sure that that event will be a big as always.
