Martin Ryan Locks Up Another Casino Championship

Martin Ryan

While the Main Event final table continues to play down, the numbers were crunched to determined the Coco WSOP Circuit Casino Champion and it turns out Martin Ryan did it again.

Mike Azzaro had a chance to take the title but his elimination in ninth place locked it up for Ryan.

The Casino Champion usually receives a seat into the WSOP Global Casino Championship but Ryan already owns one of those. He was the Casino Champion during our September series and did it again this time around with three cashes and two runner-up finishes.

Congratulations to Martin on doubling down on the great honor, he will be a fantastic representative on the big stage.
