Adam Teasdale Wins WSOPC Atlantic City For $194k

Adam Teasdale Wins WSOPC Atlantic City For $194kAdam Teasdale has won the World Series of Poker Circuit Atlantic City, after overcoming a field of 616 players over three days to lift the title and collect the $194,040 first place prize. Following his impressive victory, Teasdale dedicated his win to his father who died a year earlier, and commented:
“This is absolutely going out to him and the rest of my family. I told them that I could do it and this is just a start to a new beginning for me..I moved to North Carolina and that’s where I discovered this awesome game that’s hopefully going to change my life. I’m off to a good start.”
As the tournament reached its final table of nine, Adam Teasdale was lying fifth in chips and scored his first elimination after being dealt A-Q and calling Aaron Overton’s four-bet shove with 10s-4s. Despite a sweat on a 9s-3d-2s-10d-Ah board, Overton exited in 6th for  $37,376.
Two hours later and Teasdale (A-J) played a huge pot against Terry Grimes (8-8), who re-raised all-in on a J-J-10 flop only to see the bad news and with no help on the turn and river he departed in 5th for $49,000.
Continuing his assault, Teasdale (A-Q) sent Sung Kim (A-8) to the rail in 4th ($65,124), and after Wade Woelfel (A-K) eliminated Pete Rios (J-J) in 3rd ($87,762), the heads-up phase of the tournament got underway.
At this stage Woelfel held a slight chip lead over his opponent but Teasdale quickly took the lead and two hours later the defining hand was played after he was dealt 9-4 to Woelfel’s A-5. Woelfel 3-bet his hand preflop before leading out on a Q-Q-6 flop. Teasdale called to see a 4 fall on the turn and induced a check-all-in from Woelfel before eventually making the call. A harmless Q on the river completed Teasdale’s full house to capture the title, while Wade Woelfel had to content himself with a runner-up finish worth $120,018.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 Adam Teasdale    $194,040
2 Wade Woelfel    $120,018
3 Pete Rios    $87,762
4 Sung Kim    $65,124
5 Terry Grimes    $49,000
6 Aaron Overton    $37,376
7 Barry Leventhal $28,903
8 Ed Modlin    $22,656
9 Trevor Deeter    $18,000
