Kammar Andries

Kammar Andries came out of nowhere last February to become an unlikely champion in the February 2018 Coco WSOP Circuit Main Event. After several four-digit cashes, he won the Main Event for more than $240K and a nice bankroll boost for the poker amateur. Andries backed up that title today when he conquered the $400 Double Stack Turbo tournament for his second WSOPC ring.

The fast-paced tournament attracted 188 entries and it more than doubled its $30,000 guaranteed prize pool. They combined to put $62,040 in the pool and, as one would expect in a turbo, they quickly hit the money after the dinner break.

Andries nearly gave away the tournament once it reached the final table. Wearing his headphones, he live-misclick called a shove and lost the majority of his stack. Andries was facing some tough competition with his shorter stack including former SHRP champions Ory Hen, Zoltan Czinkota, and Carlos Loving.

Andries regained the lead late and caught aces when he was heads-up with Loving to earn the title. He took home $16,131 for the victory, his second biggest score behind only the $241,000 he won last year in the WSOPC Main Event, and he now owns a second ring.

Kammar Andries

A few hands into the heads-up match, Kammar Andries limped his button and Carlos Loving checked to see a JsTc6c flop. Loving checked, Andries bet 150,000 and Loving check-raised all in for 915,000 to get a quick call.

Andries: AhAc
Loving: Td5c

Loving was in trouble with middle pair against the rockets, picked up a flush draw on the 9c turn, but the 4h river ended the tournament with Andries earning his second WSOPC ring.

1st: Kammar Andries – $16,131 + WSOP Circuit ring

Ory Hen

Once the floodgates were opened, the eliminations came at a steady stream until the tournament went heads-up between Kammar Andries and Carlos Loving. SHRP regulars Zoltan Czinkota and Ory Hen went out in back-to-back hands followed by Gary Thill a short time later.

That set the heads-up match between Loving and Andries, both looking for another major SHRP title.

3rd: Gary Thill – $7,195

Rodney Tullock

Ory Hen open-shoved for 1,100,000 and it folded to Rodney Tullock in the big blind.

“Take your time sir,” Zoltan Czinkota joked. “Hurry up!”

That got a laugh and then a call from Tullock for his last 370,000.

Tullock: JcTc
Hen: As6c

Tullock needed to hit but it was Hen improving on the Ad9c8s flop. Tullock had an open-ended straight draw but blanked the 6h turn and 9s river to exit in sixth place.

Ory Hen – 1,570,000 (16 bb)
Rodney Tullock – Eliminated in 6th Place ($3,000)

Michael Azzaro

The turbo event lost two quick players at the final table when Obdulio Melo and David Nowling hit the payout desk and then the last seven players settled in for a long grind. They played more than an hour of seven-handed poker until the average stack hit ten big blinds.

There were a lot of shoves but everything was getting through until Michael Azzaro open-shoved for 545,000. Kamar Andries thought for a few minutes and called in the big blind for his 550,000 stack.

Andries: Jh9h
Azzaro: 3h3c

Azzaro was ahead with the small pair, faded the AhQsTs flop, but Andries added a lot of outs. The Jc turn put the Coco WSOPC Main Event champ in the lead and Azzaro was eliminated to break the stalemate.

Kammar Andries – 1,100,000 (14 bb)
Michael Azzaro – Eliminated in 7th Place ($2,317)
David Nowling – Eliminated in 8th Place ($1,820)
Obdulio Melo – Eliminated in 9th Place ($1,452)

The $400 Double Stack turbo was on the verge of setting the ten-handed final table then lost a player on each table. David Shmuel was eliminated in 11th place to prompt tournament staff to get ready to pause the clock when Andrew Daire was sent on in tenth place on the other table.

That leaves nine players remaining with a chance for the ring with some South Florida wizards including Zoltan Czinkota, Carlos Loving, David Nowling, former SHRP Player of the Year Ory Hen, and defending WSOP Circuit Main Event champion Kammar Andries.

Seat 1: Gary Thill – 825,000 (28 bb)

Each World Series of Poker Circuit stop reveals two headline players — 1) the Main Event champion, and 2) the Casino Champion. It was 12 months ago when Kammar Andries laid claim to this series’ Main Event and Karthik Ramakrishnan donned Casino Champion honors. Both players earned $10,000 entries in the WSOP’s season-ending Global Casino Championship and represented Seminole Casino Coconut Creek in the exclusive event.

Fast forward to today’s play and the duo is back in action hungry for more accolades. They’re both in the game in this morning’s $400 turbo ring event and find themselves side-by-side early on Table 16.

The field has more than doubled over the first couple levels of play with the clock showing 80 registered to start Level 3.
