A former World Poker Tour champion Stan Weiss took down one of the largest pack in history of the World Series of Poker Circuit.
The World Series of Poker Circuit US$ 365 reentry tournaments could attract some huge packs and create bloated prize kitties, but even by those criteria the reentry at the Harrah’s Cherokee stop in North Carolina was a doozie. A pack of 3067 entries were lumbered, producing a prize kitty of US$ 920100, and when the dust decided, Weiss had claimed 1st spot for US$ 158768.
Other poker players cashing in the tournament — three-hundred-twenty-four places were paid — included Jason Mayfield (91st), Tripp Kirk (92nd), Hank Sitton (168th), Ben Reason (255th), Cory Waaland (280th), and Chris Conrad (323rd).
Weiss is famous for a great score back in the year 2006, when he won the World Poker Tour US$ 10,200 Main Event at The Mirage Poker Showdown in the Sin City for US$ 1,320,255. He led a pack of 384 when he secured his membership in World Poker Tour Champions Club.
The final table of that tournament included Harry Demetriou (Second – US$ 673,272), David Williams (Fourth – US$ 221,958), and Robert Mizrachi (Sixth – US$ 129,476). David Singer (Seventh), Alan Goehring (Eighth), Haralabos Voulgaris (Eleventh), Hasan Habib (Fifteenth), Darrell Dicken (Twenty-first), and Jason Lester (Twenty-eighth).
