Posted by Steve Ruddock on May 13, 2011 Posted in WSOP News | No Comments »

The final table of the World Series of Poker Circuit Series stop in Chester, PA saw quite a few big names battling it out for the nearly $100,000 in first-place prize-money (plus an entry into the WSOP Circuit Championship that will take place later this month in Las Vegas) with names like Kenny Nguyen, Ari “Bodog Ari” Engel, and Robert Hwang positioning themselves for the title.

In the end it was Kenny “Super Tuan” Nguyen who would put the WSOP Circuit Series Gold Ring on his finger after outlasting the 268 other players who entered the tournament on Monday. The win puts Nguyen’s earnings well over $300k for his short career according to the hendonmob.com database. Nguyen’s resume was previously highlighted by a final table appearance at the 2009 WPT Borgata Poker Open where he finished in 6th place cashing for over $150k.

Here is a look at the final table payouts from the WSOP Circuit Series Chester, PA Main Event:

1.    Kenny Nguyen — $94,901
2.    Robert Scott — $58,639
