Foley: actd
Gianquitti: 9s9h

Dominique Mosley

Dominique Mosley open-shoved for 310,000 from late position and A.J. Kelsall called in the big blind.

Mosley: ahkh
Kelsall: 7d7h

Mosley needed to find something to stay in the game and the dealer provided it on the as8c3d flop. The 9d turn and 5d river were safe and Mosley had a double up.

Dominique Mosley – 665,000 (22 bb)
A.J. Kelsall – 200,000 (7 bb)

Richard Whitebrook

Richard Whitebrook open-shoved for 220,000 from middle position and it folded all the way around to A.J. Kelsall in the big blind.

“I really wish you were looser,” Kelsall told him. “It would be an easy call if you weren’t tight.”

Kelsall ended up calling with a chance to send the SHRP regular out.

Kelsall: ks9s
Whitebrook: as5d

Whitebrook looked good for the double and the 7s7c2h flop changed nothing. The 8s turn was safe but Kelsall added a flush draw to the mix. The kd river paired Kelsall’s king to give im the hand.

A.J. Kelsall – 800,000 (27 bb)
Richard Whitebrook – Eliminated in 13th place ($15,072)

Jason Hill

Staying with the early theme, Kammar Andries opened to 75,000 from the button and Jason Hill moved all in for 280,000 from the big blind. Andries called with a chance for three straight knockouts to start the day.

Hill: ad2d
Andries: ahjs

“Again, you don’t even have to make a pair!” AJ Kelsall joked with Andries.

This big ace was outflopped on the 6h5h2h board but Andries slid his ah forward to remind everyone he had the nut flush draw. The 5s turn was a blank and Hill doubled after the 3c river.

Jason Hill – 595,000 (20 bb)
Kammar Andries – 1,920,000 (64 bb)

Karthik Ramakrishnan

On the next hand, after Joe Elpayaa was sent out, Kammar Andries was at it again. Karthik Ramakrishnan open-shoved for 325,000 and Andries called. The button and blinds released and Andries had back-to-back big aces.

Andries: adqh
Ramakrishnan: jctc

Ramakrishnan had two live, suited, connected cards but neither paired or made a flush or straight on the 8s3h2d5s5h run out. Ramakrishnan was eliminated in 14th place and that result was good enough to send him to the top of the race for the Casino Championship.

Kammar Andries – 1,925,000 (64 bb)
Karthik Ramakrishnan – Eliminated in 14th place ($15,072)

Andries: askh
Elpayaa: acqc

A tough spot for Elpayaa and there was no comeback in the cards as it came tc8h3s4std for an early KO.

Kammar Andries – 1,600,000 (53 bb)

Seniors: Amir Baron Tops the 50+ Crowd

2018 World Series of Poker Circuit
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
Coconut Creek, Florida
Event 12 – Seniors Event
$250 No Limit Hold’em Re-Entry
$25,000 Guaranteed

Entries: 312
Prize Pool: $62,400
February 18, 2018

The Seniors Event is a special tournament on any schedule and the World Series of Poker Circuit version drew a huge crowd as expected. More than 300 of our 50-year-old-plus grinders made their way to The Pavilion this morning and it was Stax Poker regular Amir Baron walking away with the title.

The 312 entries in the $250 buy-in tournament easily doubled the $25,000 guaranteed prize pool to put $62,400 up for grabs. It paid out the last 33 players and they burst the money bubble soon after their dinner break.

The final table included some talented players and colorful characters including Evan Teitelbaum, Elliott Zaydman, and Marvin “Duckman” Karlins. The pace slowed once they reached four-handed play with Steve Novak and Errol Rosen exiting to set up the heads-up battle.

After more than 13 hours in The Pavilion, Baron defeated Teitelbaum for the title and another nice score for the popular local. This finish goes along with more than a dozen final table appearances in the regular Stax Poker Monday $130 Deep Stacks tournament and his fourth career tournament win. Baron earned $14,665 for the long day’s work along with a shiny new ring.

Event 13: Mike Russ Wins Second Ring

Event 13
$365 No Limit Hold’em Turbo (Re-Entry)
Entries: 106
Prize Pool: $31,800
February 18, 2018

Event 13 was the last new event on the World Series of Poker Circuit schedule and the one-day turbo moved at a steady clip. The final table featured some talented local players including David Bradshaw, Carlos Loving, and Monster Stack final table member Aaron Miles. Mike Russ outlasted them all to earn his second WSOP Circuit ring along with $9,542.

Russ is making a habit of winning last chance WSOP Circuit rings. He won the final event of the Hollywood WSOP Circuit series this past October and that fact didn’t get past Russ either.

“I think this is my event,” he laughed.

The tournament drew 106 entries to create a prize pool worth $31,800 and a fine way to close out the series. The last 12 players earned some money and it played down to the final table after six hours. Gregory Cambareri and Steven Bennett made it into the money but missed out on the final table.

Russ defeated SHRP regular Bradshaw heads-up for the title after a long battle. Both players worked hard to take home the WSOP Circuit ring but it was Russ adding one to put on another finger.

Brian Altman

Brian Altman three-bet 120,000 and Chris Conrad moved all in for 617,000. Altman called with a chance to move into the lead.

Altman: jsjd
Conrad: kckd

Conrad was in great shape for a big double and improved on the ks5c4s flop. Altman picked up a flush draw on the 7s turn and the unlikely comeback was complete on the 9s river to send Conrad out in 30th place.

Brian Altman – 1,620,000 (135 bb)

Andrew Pacifico

Our starting Day 2 chip leader did not have much luck after dinner. Andrew Pacifico doubled up Chris Conrad earlier and put his last 36,000 in the middle soon after to get a call from Francis Margaglione in the big blind.

Margaglione: qc2c
Pacifico: 7d7c

Pacifico was in good shape for a small double but Margaglione flopped trip queens on the kdqdqh board. The 5d turn and 9c ended Pacifico’s day in 32nd place.

Francis Margaglione – 850,000 (71 bb)
Andrew Pacifico – Eliminated in 32nd ($5,582)
