2019 September WSOP Circuit
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
$1,125 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Prize Pool: $89,000
September 22-23, 2019
Event 3 rounded out the first weekend on the WSOP Circuit schedule with a bigger buy-in tournament that produced a great field. It had a $1,125 buy-in and featured a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool that was easily beat. SHRP regular Zachary Mullennix outlasted everyone and dominated the late stages of the final table to earn his second WSOP Circuit ring.
The tournament saw 89 entries get in the game to put $89,000 in the prize pool with the last 14 spots getting paid. It played down to the final table ten late on Day 1 and Jake Dollinger bagged the biggest returning stack.
Ryan Van Sanford was not far behind at the start of Day 2 and took command early. He was the first player to stack more than one million chips at the final table as Richard Rice, Erik Christensen, Jackie Lee, and Haim Toorgeman hit the rail and Sam Panzica continued to stay in the game with several doubles.
Dollinger’s downfall in sixth place vaulted Mullennix into a virtual tie with Van Sanford. The lead swapped after when Mullennix took a 500K pot from Van Sanford shortly before WSOP bracelet/WSOPC ring winner David Prociak went out in fifth place.
Wilfor Marentes exited the tournament in fourth place to set up a shocking end to the tournament. Mullennix, Van Sanford, and Paniza each picked up pocket pairs and the chips went in the middle. Mullennix’ pockets queens held against Van Sanford’s eights and Panzica’s deuces and Event 3 was settled.
Mullennix won his second WSOP Circuit ring to go along with the one he took home from our February series. He has more than $300,000 in career earnings and this is the third best cash of his career with his top prize coming this summer with a WSOP final table in Las Vegas.
