Cord Garcia, Event 8 Turbo Champ

Event 8 on the WSOP Circuit schedule was a $600 buy-in Turbo that once again lived up to its name. The tournament drew 84 entries and featured a tough final table with multiple ring and bracelet winners. When the dust settled, Cord Garcia was the last player standing to win his third WSOP Circuit ring, a nice addition to his WSOP Colossus bracelet.

In addition to Garcia at the final table, Scott Roberts and Zachary Mullennix were going for their second win of the series. Roberts wife Lisa was sitting to his left and Mark Amaral was looking for his second ring.

Garcia defeated Roberts heads up to win the title along with $13,098 while Roberts will likely move to the top of the Casino Champion Leaderboard in the morning.

Monster Stack: Justin Harvell Breaks Through for WSOPC Win

Justin Harvell

(Coconut Creek, FL) — Justin Harvell knows a little something about getting deep in World Series of Poker Circuit events and now the grinder can call himself a WSOPC Monster Stack champion. This was his eleventh WSOPC final table and those produced three runner-up finishes including a second-place result in this tournament last February.

Harvell was not able to break through in 2018 but now he is the proud owner of a WSOPC ring after defeating a field of 547 entries.

“I’m just so happy,” Harvell said after the win. “That’s the main thing. I’m just really happy I finally won and now I can build up from here.”

The Monster Stack was one of the biggest tournaments on the schedule and the $400 buy-in tournament never had a problem getting to the $100,000 Guarantee when the 547 entries pushed the prize pool over $180,000.

The last 63 spots were paid and they hit the money bubble shortly before the end of Day 1. Harvell returned for Day 2 near the bottom of the counts but dodged problems throughout the day until he began to heat up with two tables remaining.

Players continued to drop to the rail as Harvell rose to the chip lead and made the final table with 5.7 of the 16.4 million chips in play. He used his big stack to pressure his opponents and they were never able to put a big dent in his lead.

Harvell was responsible for five of the final table eliminations including Alan Wentz to lock up the title with a timely turned full house. Wentz battled back from less than one small blind late and took home $23,446 for his time.

Harvell happily collected his first WSOP Circuit ring along with $37,914.

Monster Stack final table results:

1st: Justin Harvell – $37,914 + WSOP Circuit Ring
2nd: Alan Wentz – $23,446
3rd: Brandon Miller – $17,145
4th: Scott Jordan – $12,722
5th: Martin Borras – $9,572
6th: Cesar Fuentes – $7,302
7th: Ben Sriqiu – $5,646
8th: Voitto Rintala – $4,426
9th: Craig Wentz – $3,516
10th: Tim Kotocavage – $2,830

Monster Stack: Justin Harvell Defeats Alan Wentz for His First Ring

Justin Harvell

Unlike much of Day 2, the final hand of the tournament did not put all the chips in the middle preflop. Justin Harvell and Alan Wentz saw a flop of 8h6h4h before Wentz got his 2,650,000 stack in good (at that point).

Wentz: 9h7h
Harvell: 8c6c

They both hit huge heads-up hands with Wentz ahead with his flopped flush versus eights up for Harvell. It was immediate bad news for Wentz when the 8d turn gave Harvell the full house.

Wentz had two outs for his open-ended straight flush draw but the board and tournament finished after the 4d to put an end to the Monster Stack. It was a great late run for Wentz who found himself with less than small blind with a dozen players still in the game.

Wentz earned $23,446 for his runner-up finish while Harvell walked away with $37,914 and his first WSOP Circuit ring.

Brandon Miller

Alan Wentz folded his button, Brandon Miller raised to 350,000 from the small blind, and Justin Harvell put him all in from the big. After a couple minutes, Miller called at risk for ~2,700,000.

Harvell: KdQs
Miller: AsTd

Miller was looking good for his turn to double but Harvell took the lead on the Ks9h7d flop. The 5d turn and 2c river completed the board and Miller hit the exit in third place.

Justin Harvell – 13,560,000 (85 bb)

Brandon Miller folded his button and Justin Harvell moved all in. He had Alan Wentz covered and he called for 1,085,000.

Wentz: KsJc
Harvell: Kc9s

They both paired the Kd8d5c flop and Harvell called for a chop. The board finished Ac turn and Ts river to give Wentz the needed double.

Justin Harvell – 10,750,000 (67 bb)
