Posted by Steve Ruddock on Aug 20, 2012 Posted in Live Poker News, Tournament News | No Comments »

The world of tournament poker is back in full swing with major tournaments taking place in locales across the globe. In Los Angeles the Bicycle Casino is hosting the Legends of poker tournament series; in Barcelona the PokerStars led Estrellas Poker Tour and EPT are teaming up for their first joint series; the Arizona State Poker Championship hosted another massive Main Event; and in Biloxi, Mississippi the WSOPC is in town. Here is a look at some of the results from these events.

John Dolan wins WSOPC ring at IP Biloxi

Former November Niner John Dolan may not have won the coveted WSOP Main Event bracelet back in 2010, and he just missed winning a WPT title earlier this year, when he finished second at the Seminole Hard Rock Showdown in his native Florida, but this weekend Dolan did pickup a poker trophy, winning his first WSOPC Ring.

Dolan won a $300 NLHE Event at the IP Biloxi stop on the WSOPC tour, beating a field of 146 players and pocketing $12,265 in the process. It may not be the six or seven-figure scores that Dolan has had in the past, but winning a WSOPC ring has to count for something.

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the event:

1. John Dolan – $12,265

2. Cory Wood – $7,580

3. Aaron Gamino – $5,471

4. Jay Martin – $4,020

5. Ronald Cole – $3,006

6. Ryan Tepen – $2,285

7. Daniel Rivera – $1,766

8. Lacy Wills – $1,388

9. Austin Buchanan – $1,108
