Robert Kuhn Triumphs at 2016 WSOPC Harrah's Atlantic City

Robert Kuhn has won the 2016 WSOPC Harrah’s Atlantic City main event, after besting a field of 370 players over four days on his way to capturing the title, and collecting $122,098 in prize money. Following his victory in New Jersey, Kuhn now boasts $394,801 in live tournament cashes, to go with the $1,573,246 he has won online playing under the screen name ‘Pokerguru740’.
The $1,675 Main Event featured a prize pool worth $555,000, and amongst the notable pros seeing a return on their buy-ins was Asher Conniff in 26th ($3,968) Michael Esposito in 25th ($3,968), Andy Frankenberger in 16th ($6,383), and Brian Lemke in 13th ($7,670).
Robert Kuhn, 25, subsequently started the final table as the chip leader, and soon added further to his stack by busting Oliver Entine in 9th, and Joseph Liberta in 6th. Kuhn (A-10) then took care of 8-times WSOPC winner Ari Engel (6-6) in 4th, followed by Dorian Rios in 3rd to set up the final battle against Nenad Cvetkovic for the title.
As heads-up got underway, Kuhn had a roughly 5-to-1 chip advantage over his remaining opponent, and just two hands later it was all over. Cvetkovic (Ks-5c) check-raised all-in with a busted straight draw on a 8s-7c-6d-2c-Qs board, and after deliberating a while Kuhn (8c-3c) made the call to consign Cvetkovic to a runner-up finish worth $75,452, representing his biggest score to date. In February, Cvetkovic also finished the Parx Casino main event in 10th place for $13,126, with the player having now earned $89,453 from three tournament cashes.
Meanwhile, Robert Kuhn claimed the Harrah’s Atlantic City WSOPC title, and commenting on Ari Engel, the dangerman at the final table, Kuhn explained: “I watched about four hours of Aussie Millions footage last night. I had a really good grasp on Ari, a really goodgrasp. I went to bed at 2:00 and woke up at 7:00 and just studied. I wanted to sleep in, but I just couldn’t.”
