WSOP.com Event 15 finds a winner
“DrDisRespect” takes down the tournament and picks up a Circuit ring
The online poker scenario has been gaining popularity in recent times but with the outbreak of the coronavirus, online poker tournaments are getting all the attention. The World Series of Poker (WSOP) throws an Online Super Circuit Series every season and since most live poker events were either postponed or canceled, this year’s circuit is welcoming more players than usual. There are players who prefer the online poker scene, especially WSOP.com that comes with 18 events that are very profitable. The last event played was event #15, which took place this past Saturday and crowned a new winner. Andrew Dean, better known as DrDisRespect, has collected his first WSOP Circuit ring.
The series welcomes players who are located only within the borders of Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware. This event offered a $75,000 guaranteed prize pool for the NLHE game with two re-entries, and a $320 buy-in. There were 473 players who registered for this event and 258 got back into the competition with rebuys, the total featured entries were 731. That means the total prize pool almost tripled the guaranteed amount and ended up in $219,300. Based on the tournament structure, only the first 75 players in the list cashed out a minimum of $701.
DrDisRespect won the main prize pool for a total of $53,728, but that was not the only prize he got. He was worthy of the legendary WSOP Circuit ring, granted to him based on this event’s results. All 18 events advertised for this series come with a ring awarded to the winner. He survived against several popular poker personalities who were playing that event, and who were able to cash out, even if they failed to make it into the final table. These included Matt “RubberFist” Stout, Qui Tim “LINSANITY” Ha, Tylor “WorldChamp” Groth, Orison “borgotcha” Young, and James “pokercpa” Hoeppner.
