WSOPC Harrah’s Atlantic City Championship Won By Chris Klodnicki

Poker pro Chris Klodnicki has won the $5,000 WSOPC Harrah’s Atlantic City no-limit hold’em championship, after beating a field of 194 players to take down the  $215,915 first prize.
Klodnicki’s  latest victory has pushed his live all time tournament earnings to  $1,128,917, and he couldn’t be more delighted. “I feel great; I was having a pretty off year, and this ended the year on a great note. I was starting to lose my confidence, and this picked it up a lot,” said Klodnicki after his first place finish.
A tough final table line-up included Grayson Ramage, Farzad Rouhani, Eugene Fouksman, Mukul Pahuja, Kyle Bowker, Charles Furey, Ryan Karp, and Wayne Lewis.
Eugene Fouksman exited in ninth ($27,505), after running his pocket J’s into Ryan Karp’s QQ. Next to get eliminated was Farzad Rouhani ($36,673), who pushed all his chips centre holding 6 3 on a K-6-5-2 board but was called and busted by Grayson Ramage with K 9.
Wayne Lewis picked up $45,482 for his seventh place finish, but must have felt a little disappointed not to go further, especially after getting all his money in on a 10-9-6 flop versus Kyle Bowker’s pocket 7’s, who then spiked a 7 on the river.
Charles Furey exited in sixth ($55,010), after his pocket nines found themselves up against Klodnicki’s  pocket rockets, and just before the interval, Klodnicki managed to take out Ryan Karp in fifth ($64,178), when he called Karp’s K J all-in pre-flop move, holding A 7, and hit an another ace on the turn.
After the game continued, Mukul Pahuja was sitting low, and so moved all-in with his A 2, only to be called and eliminated ($73,347) by Kyle Bowker’s pocket 7’s. Three handed, Klodnicki knocked Grayson Ramage out in third ($100,852) after racing his pocket 8’s against Ramage’s A 10 and thus placed himself in a dominant position, taking an enormous 8 to 1 chip advantage against Bowker into the heads-up stage of the tournament.
Desperate and low on chips, it wasn’t long before Bowker made his move, and pushed all in preflop with 7 5. He was surely relieved to see Klodnicki was holding 7 4, but a 4 on the flop, and the river meant his tournament was over and he had to be content with the $128,357 runner-up prize.-up prize.
All of Chris Klodnicki’s tournament earnings have now come from the WSOP (7 cashes $807,850) or WSOPC events (2 cashes for $246,191). He obviously has an affinity with Harrah’s, and in addition to his latest victory, has now earned himself a $10,000 seat at the 2010 WSOP main event, a tournament he has much of experience of already, having previously finished 12th in 2008, for his biggest score to date of $591,869.
