Justin "truesyalose" Truesdell Wins WSOPC New OrleansJustin “truesyalose” Truesdell has won the 2012 World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) New Orleans, after defeating a field of 694 players over four days to lift the title, and collect the $204,747 first place prize.
As well as having had a successful career online pre-Black Friday, the 30 year-old local man has also been doing rather well in the live arena and picked-up his first gold ring in 2009 at the $1k WSOPC Harrah’s Tunica for $77,836. With his latest win in New Orleans, Justin Truesdell has now taken his live tournament earnings past the half a million dollars mark.
As the final table of the $1,600 buy-in event got underway, Justin Truesdell was lying in third spot with the players lining-up as follows:
Anthony Vidmer (2,523,000)
Andrew Nguyen    (2,379,000)
Justin Truesdell (2,027,000)
Daniel Lowery (1,939,000)

Shane Smith (1,037,000)
Dominic Gabaldon (975,000)
Ramon Martinez (809,000)
George Miro (629,000)
After a flurry of activity which saw five players exit over three hours, Justin Truesdell scored his first elimination after going all-in pre-flop holding pocket Jacks to Daniel Lowery Q-Q. The A-5-5-J-9 board then sealed Lowery’s fate, who exited in 4th for $69,105.
Subsequently, Andrew Nguyen dispatched Anthony Vidmer in 3rd ($92,926) to begin heads-up holding a slight chip advantage over Truesdell. Not long after making a deal whereby both players were guaranteed at least $160,000, Truesdell hit a higher flush than his opponent to take a 12 to 1 chip lead. Truesdell (A-5) then had Nguyen (4-2) all-in for his remaining chips with the J-3-6-10-8 board handing the win to the New Orleans man, as well as the National Championship ticket.
Justin Truesdell later tweeted: “Thanks to everyone for the shoutouts!! Feels great. @winnersnguyen played ever better, congrats on 2nd to him.”
