World-Series-of-Poker-July-2010-dealer-tables-300x200As the year-ending major tournaments draw closer the tournament action is once again picking up. Not only is the action picking up, but attendance has been on an uptick, which is a very good sign for the poker economy.

Strong turnout for the inaugural WSOPC Cincinnati

740 players showed up for the inaugural World Series of Poker Circuit Series stop in Cincinnati and when the dust settled it was local grinder Brad Albrinck who emerged victorious over the field. The biggest challenge at the final table for Albrinck was poker pro Aaron Steury, but Steury’s run would end in 6th place, while Albrinck went on to best the appropriately named David Kash for the title.

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