David Hubbard Triumphs At WSOPC New Orleans

A huge field of 785 players entered the WSOPC New Orleans $1,675 Main Event to create a prize pool worth $1,177,500. Three days of action later, and it was Texan resident David Hubbard who would claim the title, as well as the event’s $235,500 first place prize.
According to his Hendon Mob statistics, Hubbard has now cashed in at 16 tournament since 2004, with his latest and biggest score to date now boosting his live career earnings to $270,898. As the federal agent then commented after his impressive victory:
“My first ring, it feels really good. I’ve played a lot of tournaments and I’ve run deep a lot and I got coolered in a few of ’em. So I got paid back in this one big time.. I always complain to my wife, ‘Man, this variance never evens out.’ But I guess it does.”
The WSOPC Main Event was held at Harrah’s New Orleans, and amongst the notable players subsequently cashing in at one of the tournament’s 81 paid money spots was Josh Arieh in 73rd ($2,932), Cory Waaland in 64th ($3,191), Jose Serratos in 41st ($4,239), Phillip Hui in 31st ($5,393), and Timothy “TK” Miles in 16th ($11,975).
After the final table got underway, Hubbard eliminated Blake Barousse in 9th, before being dealt A-Q and doing likewise to Beddingfield (A-8) in 8th. Eventually, Hubbard would then progress all the way through to the heads-up phase against Jake Dollinger, with the deciding hand played after Dollinger moved all-in preflop holding A-K only to be called by his opponent with pocket tens. The Q-10-6-J-10 board which ensued then sealed the deal, and so Dollinger had to settle for a runner-up finish worth $145,186, while top honors went to David Hubbard, plus a seat through to the Global Poker Championship.
Final Table Results:
1: David Hubbard $235,500
2: Jake Dollinger $145,186
3: Riley Fuller $107,035
4: David Diaz $79,776
5: David Slaughter $60,253
