Jeff Fielder Wins WSOPC Choctaw For $312k

Jeff Fielder Wins WSOPC Choctaw For $312kJeff Fielder has won the 2013 WSOPC Choctaw Durant Main Event, after defeating a field of 1,140 players over three days to lift the title, and collect the $312,080 first place prize.
Felder’s previous highest cash was in 2010 at the $10k WSOP Main Event, where he finished 92nd out of 7,319 players for $67,422. With his latest victory at the $1,675 buy-in event in Oklahoma, Felder has now doubled his poker earnings to $613,129, but the construction company manager insists playing poker is still just a hobby. As he explains:
“I’m pretty content right now. I like what I do. It’d be pretty stressful to [play tournament poker] full time. I like the guaranteed income that gives me the cushion to go to some of these stops.”
After the 9 handed final table got underway, Felder scored his first elimination holding A-K to his opponent’s K-J to dispatch Drazen Ilich to the rail in 6th for $63,202. Four-handed play then saw Felder (K-K) double-up against Matt Kirby (Ad-Jd) to assume the chip lead before Kirby eliminated Bryan Campanello in 4th ($107,730). Soon after Fielder (A-K) took care of Dale Roesel (A-10) in 3rd ($143,230) to start the heads-up phase of the competition.
At this stage Kirby held a 2:1 chip advantage over Fielder and after readdressing the balance holding A-10 to Kirby’s A-Q, the defining hand was played with Kirby once more holding A-Q, but this time up against 4-4. Unfortunately for him, the board ran out 7-9-7-6-7 to relegate him to a runner up finish worth $192,751, while Jeff Fielder was crowned the 2013 WSOPC Choctaw Durant champion.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1st Jeff Fielder     $312,080
2nd Matt Kirby       $192,751
3rd Dale Roesel         $143,230
4th Bryan Campanello $107,730
5th Krissi McFarland $82,092
6th Drazen Ilich     $63,202
7th Cliff Stewart    $49,265
8th Paul Phillips    $38,834
9th Doug Ashmore     $30,951
