Adam Ross Wins WSOPC Harrah’s Cherokee Main Event

Posted On 18 Aug, 2018 0

The 2018 edition of the prestigious World Series of Poker (WSOP) has recently come to an end, so all attention shifts to the WSOP Circuit Events, which take place throughout the year across the USA. Here, we're bringing to you an update from the WSOP Circuit Main Event at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort, North Carolina.

The was the first of the 28 scheduled stops of the 2018 WSOPC season, and the season kicked off with a bang, with a tournament that saw a massive field of 1,056 entries. The $1,700 Main Event was a 4-day tournament and emerging victorious from this massive field was Georgia's Adam Ross.

This was his first major title and he was awarded a prize of $295,970 and a maiden WSOP ring. He can add this prize to his prior live winnings of around $70k and he will be mighty proud of this win, having beaten some popular names from the circuit. After this win, he commented, “No more mortgage!"

“This is life-changing money. I've had about 20 cashes but never a win. Never life-changing money. I'm going to continue to play a little poker and continue to be a Sales manager at my job. I think I'll play in Vegas - the Main Event next year,” he added. He beat Ryan Phan in heads-up, and Indian origin Raveesh Asnani finished in third place.

If you remember well, Phan scored an impressive 11th place finish at the recent 2018 WSOP Main Event and Ross did well to overcome that competition. It was a good start to the 15th season of the WSOP Circuit and we're expecting many more exciting events to take place over the next few months.

Final table results:

  1. Adam Ross - $295,970
  2. Ryan Phan - $182,990
  3. Raveesh Asnani - $135,986
  4. Bradley Mercer - $102,230
