Poker Pro In Rush For Toilet Wins WSOPC Tournament

Poker pro Brent Carter has just won the WSOP Circuit Palm Beach Kennel Club H.O.R.S.E. event, after defeating a field of 173 players on his way to collecting the $13,454 first place prize.
The two times WSOP bracelet winner from Illinois used his prodigious skills to help win the $345 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. event, but matters became a bit touch and go when he reached the heads-up phase of the competition against Tuan Luu.
It was at that point that the 63 year-old was in desperate need for a comfort break but with the tournament rules stipulating that the clock would not be stopped outside of scheduled breaks, Brent Carter found himself in the middle of a toilet versus poker dilemma.
With the next break a while away, being behind in chips and with the blinds already high, Carter knew that to walk away from the table even for a few minutes would be fatal for his tournament hopes.
Consequently, Brent Carter quite literally went for a s**t or bust approach, whereby he rammed and jammed every hand irrespective of where he thought he may lay in the hand in order to expedite the proceedings. As Carter explains:
“So I had to do something or it could have been a real mess…Honestly, if I did not have to go to the restroom so bad, I would never have played those hands.”
Overcoming a 2 to 1 disadvantage at the start of heads-up lay, Carter then managed to hit a flood of good luck to win the $345 H.O.R.S.E. event in a relatively short space of time. Not surprisingly, he then disappeared in double time and reemerged a while later having enjoyed the greatest royal flush of his career.
With his latest bizarre win, Brent Carter has now taken his live tournament earnings past the $3 million mark, with his 46 cashes at the WSOP accounting for around half of those winnings.
