Irani Poker Victory At WSOPC Indiana

Irani Poker Victory At The WSOPC Horseshoe Southern IndianaZal Irani has just picked-up the biggest score of his poker career, after besting a field of 301 players over three days at the World Series of Poker Circuit Horseshoe Southern Indiana, to capture the title and collect the $106,103 first place prize.
This year, Zal Irani had already finished in second spot at the $350 Re-Entry Chicago Poker Classic for $104,275, but actually taking down a major title obviously meant a great deal to the New Orleans based pro, who subsequently tweeted:
“Thanks for all the support everyone. Feels great to knock the monkey off my back via a Main Event.”
By the time the $1,675 Main Event reached its final table of nine, Zal Irani was lying in 6th place, but he quickly got off to a good start after being dealt A-10 and eliminating a short-stacked Donald Crabtree (4-4) in 9th for $9,793. A little while later, and Irani (7-7) boosted his stack further by taking care of another short-stacker Allan Vrooman in 8th ($12,272), whose K-5 pre-flop shove faltered on an 8-7-5-10-A board.
When the tournament reached three-handed play, Irani (9-5) would subsequently make a straight on a 7-6-5-2-8 board to eliminate Sean Lippel (J-J) in 3rd ($47,647),  and thus herald-in the heads-up phase of the competition.
Two hours of heads-up play later, and the defining hand was eventually played with both Irani  (9-8) and Michael Hahn (Ad-10d) all-in on a 9d-8-2d flop. The turn and river then produced an Ah and 4c to consign Michael Hahn to a runner-up finish worth $65,603, while Zal Irani was crowned the WSOPC Horseshoe Southern Indiana champion.
Final Table  Payouts:
1st Zal Irani         $106,103
2nd Michael Hahn     $65,603
3rd Sean Lippel         $47,647
4th Ryan Jones         $35,194
5th Nick Phillips    $26,422
6th Robert Geith     $20,150
7th Robert Georato   $15,608
8th Allan Vrooman    $12,272
9th Donald Crabtree  $9,793
