Abraham Korotki Wins 2017 WSOPC Harrah’s Atlantic City

Abraham Korotki Wins 2017 WSOPC Harrah’s Atlantic City Abraham Korotki has won the 2017 WSOP Circuit Harrah’s Atlantic City, after besting a field of 341 players over three days on his way to capturing the title, and its $117,645 first place prize.
Back in 2006, Korotki won the $10k WSOPC Atlantic City Championship event for $433,008, and after now picking up his second career gold ring, boosts his live career earnings to $1,503,640. Commenting after his impressive performance, the Delaware native stated:
“This was a good tournament. It was fun and a lot of nice people in it, so I enjoyed it. Players have gotten better and it is very difficult to win a tournament, let alone multiple tournaments.”
The $1,675 WSOPC Main Event featured a $511,500 prize pool, with 36 money spots subsequently available. Amongst the pros then seeing a return on their money was Jamie Kerstetter in 32nd ($2,946), Matt Affleck in 25th ($3,795), and Dennis Phillips in 20th ($5,141).
Abraham Korotki then entered the final table of nine in pole position, eventually progressing all the way through to heads-up play where he faced-off against Alexander Rochafor the title. One hour is all it would then take before Korotki was able to overcome his final opponent to close out the victory.
Over the years, Abraham Korotki has achieved a great deal of success at the poker tables, and in addition to earning a second WSOPC gold ring, in 2014 he took down the $2,700 Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship for $256,508. While poker is a fiercely competitive and cutthroat business, Abraham Korotki also earned himself a reputation for overstepping the mark in 2006, after entering the $300 Borgata Poker Open Ladies Event, eventually winning the tournament for $20,982. The controversy which ensued was exasperated by the fact that he refused to strike a deal with his heads-up opponent, despite being even in chips and Nicole Rowe scheduled to undergo breast cancer surgery a few weeks later, and hoping to raise funds to help with her recovery.
Final Table Results:
1: Abraham Korotki $117,645
2: Alexander Rocha $72,730
3: Edward Duncan $53,085
4: Henry Edmondson $39,355
5: Nenad Cvetkovic $29,647
6: Brian Paneth $22,675
7: Jeremy Stein $17,596
8: Shannon Shorr $13,851
9: Julie Cornelius $11,059
