Jack Binion WSOP Circuit Events 4-6
© 2006, Jason Kirk ¬†

The Jack Binion WSOP Circuit at Grand Casino Tunica is almost a week into play now, and with 16 events left to be played things are really just getting started.

Event #4, the $500+50 Limit Hold'em tournament, drew a solid 473 entries. The $219,405 prize pool was split among the final 5 tables. Among those finishing in the money was Campbell Davis of Dallas, TX, who won the Limit Hold'em event at the last Grand Casino Tunica WSOP Circuit. Robert Willis of Grenada, MS, took 1st place and $65,800, outlasting Bruce Davis of Haines City, FL, in heads-up action.

Event #5 of the Circuit, the $500+50 Seven-Card Stud tourney, drew 187 players. A total of $90,695 was up for grabs among the final 2 tables - not bad for a stud tournament outside of the East Coast! The story of the tournament was Ann Budde of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Her 2nd place finish was the best yet for a woman at any WSOP Circuit event, and the $16,325 prize she took home should pay her way into plenty more stud tournaments. Burt Bronson of Toledo, Ohio, took home the ring and the seat in the main event with his 1st place finish - not to mention a nice sum of $29,470.

Event #6, the $500+50 Pot-Limit Hold'em tournament, saw a starting field of 317 players. That built a prize pool of $153,745 to be paid out to the players at the final 3 tables. James Spain, who took 3rd place in Event #4, played well enough to take 22nd in this tournament. When the dust it was George Bronstein of Tampa, FL, who emerged as the champion, taking home $46,035 as well as the ring and a seat in the main event. John Yoo of St. Charles, MO, was the runner-up.
