Ryan Eriquezzo Wins WSOPC Caesars Atlantic City

Ryan Eriquezzo has won the 2012 World Series of Poker Circuit Caesars Atlantic City Main Event, after overcoming a field of 641 players over three days to lift the title, and collect the $191,194 first-place prize.
Following his victory, Eriquezzo now takes his career tournament earnings to  $627,237, while smashing his previous biggest score record of $71,978 at last year’s $1k Borgata Winter Open. Speaking later about his remarkable win, the 27 year-old commented:
“No doubt, this was the biggest win of my life. This was as tough a table as I’ve played and I could not be happier.”
By the time the final table had been reached at the $1,600 Main Event, Ryan Eriquezzo was lying in 5th place out of nine players.
Ryan Eriquezzo then proceeded to bust Ryan Higgins in 8th ($22,533), before  adding further to his stack by hitting quads with pocket sevens on a 7-4-5-7-2 board, at the expense of Garry Gates.
A little while later, Ryan Eriquezzo (J-J) gave himself a further boost by scoring a double knockout against Eugene Fouksman (A-7) and Garry Gates (A-K) on a 4-9-5-10-8 board, to eliminate the pair in 5th ($48,638) and 4th ($64,530) place respectively.
After Troy Erickson then exited in 3rd ($86,774), the heads-up phase of the competition got underway, with Ryan Eriquezzo holding a huge chip advantage over David Zeitlin. Despite Zeitlin’s best efforts, he was unable to bridge the gap and eventually came unstuck after jamming with pocket twos into his opponent’s Kc-Jc. The board subsequently ran out 6-10-8-5-K to relegate Zeitlin to a runner-up finish worth $118,307, while  Ryan Eriquezzo was awarded the WSOPC gold winner’s ring. As well as the prize money, Eriquezzo was also awarded a seat to the $1 million National Championship in July.
