Chris Johnson wins WSOPC Caesar’s Las Vegas Championship

With a very strong field chock-full of top poker pros the final table at the World Series of Poker Circuit Series taking place at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas ended up quite lacking in star-power, with only one recognizable name amongst the final 10 competitors: UB Poker sponsored player “Hollywood” Dave Stann, who is better known for his blackjack skills than for playing poker –although he has improved tremendously on the poker front over the years.

In the end it was the chip-leader entering the final table, Chris Johnson, who managed to just steamroll the entire table, which took a mere 2 hours and 40 minutes to complete –which is likely a record for any full final table not played as a super-turbo!

Here is a look at how the final 10 players fared in the WSOP Circuit Series Caesar’s Palace Main Event:

1.    Chris Johnson — $153,599
2.    Brian England — $94,944
3.    Jon Seaman — $69,360
4.    John Kulish — $51,418
5.    Adam Hui — $38,699
6.    James Martini — $29,498
7.    Alex Santiago — $22,820
8.    Dave Stann — $17,906
9.    Matthew Leecy — $14,249
10.    Derrick Kuenzel — $11,492

The WSOP Circuit Series will head off to Pennsylvania for the next stop on the tour, before returning to Caesar’s Palace for the $1,000,000 National Championship at the end of May, which all 10 finalists at today’s final table qualified for.
