Kami Hudson Aces WSOP Online Finale Event #9
At the end of last week we saw the World Series of Poker Online Finale Circuit Series wrap up a 9th successful tournament event. The 12-ring series concluded on June 14, and was open to all players in New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada. Event #9 comprised of a $100,000 GTD Online Finale Circuit NLH 2x Re-entry format featuring a $320 buy-in. In true WSOP style, with a field totaling a final count of 422 registered players, event #9 effortlessly surpassed the promised guaranteed prize pool amount. At the end of the final evening, a superb prize pool totalling $204,300 was distributed among the top 75 players.
Final heads-up play ultimately saw Kami “Loco4coco” Hudson outlast, outwit and phenomenally outsmart Chance “BingShui” Kornuth, thereby securing not only a terrific $50,053 in first-place prize money, but also her very first WSOP Circuit ring, as well as a guaranteed berth in the upcoming Global Casino Championship.
More Big-Name Players
Other cashers-inners included Jeffy “mavsusc” Platt, who finished up in 61st position and with $653 in online Poker prize money in the bank, Ankush “rickrosstheb” Mandavia, whose 17th place finish meant a superb $1,634 in banked winnings, and Shankar “burgersssss” Pillai, who thanks to a 10th position finish, now gets to spend awesome prize money to the tune of $2,247.
But there were also several big-name players who sadly fell short of the money train. These included Eric “circleball” Baldwin, regular online Poker enthusiast Luis “theunderdog0” Rodriguez, and the famous Jamie “DanBilzerian” Kerstetter. Eric, Luis and Jamie finished up in 76th, 103rd and 177th positions, respectively.
Online Poker For All To Enjoy
Exciting news too is that the World Series of Poker’s exciting partnership with international online operator GGPoker for the first time ever makes it possible for players outside of Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware to compete in WSOP online tournament events. And as pointed out by Canada’s own Poker star Daniel Negreanu, there’s nothing in the world quite like the excitement of winning a WSOP bracelet.
Negreanu, who is a star GGPoker ambassador, believes that bringing the WSOP Poker tournament online opens a door to a whole new generation of Poker players now officially set, ready and ‘GO’ to feel the thrill of competing for Poker’s biggest prize.
The World Series of Poker is the longest running tournament in the sport and dates back all the way to 1970. The prestigious WSOP gold ring and gold bracelet are recognised the world over as Poker’s top prize.
