WSOPC Regional Championship 2010 Won By Brett Schwertley

Brett Schwertley has just won the World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) Regional Championship 2010, after defeating a record breaking field of 1,611 players over three days to take down the title, and the $77,438 first place prize.
The 27 year-old pro from Omaha, Nebraska has a special fondness for WSOP Circuit events and his latest victory represents his fifth cash on the circuit this year, and ninth in total. As well as achieving his biggest score to date, Brett Schwertley now takes his live tournament earnings to $147,050.
Commenting on his famous victory, and moving up to second position on the WSOPC National Championship Race Leaderboard, Schwertley said:
“It does not really change anything for me. But I am very competitive and I plan to play in more events. This is the third straight WSOP Circuit I have attended this year. So, I will keep doing that for a while. I was in good shape with points coming in and now I am the leader here, so far.”
As the $350 No-Limit Hold’em event got going on Friday at the Horseshoe Hammond casino in Indiana, a record field of 1,611 players showed up hoping for a shot at the title. By the time the numbers had been reduced to 168, all the remaining players were guaranteed at least $546.
When the final table of nine had been reached, Dan Whalen was way ahead on 3.5 million chips, with Jacob Glanton second on 2.7 million and Schwertley in third spot on 1.69 million. Other players at the table included Edward Corrado, Jack Ranallo, Daniel Pyszynski, Jason Schroeder, Michael Gassner, and Alex Smith.
Eventually Dan Whalen was eliminated in 5th ($20,945) and Jacob Glanton in 4th ($27,511), and Brett Schwertley ultimately found himself battling heads-up against Edward Corrado for the WSOP Circuit title.
The deciding hand occurred after Schwertley pushed all his chips in on the river with a made flush and was called by Corrado holding top pair.
Edward Corrado was eliminated and collected $47,975 for his runner-up finish, while Brett Schwertley was crowned the WSOPC Regional Championship 2010 Winner and walked away $77,438 richer.
