Ari Engel Records Amazing 6th WSOP Circuit Victory

Ari Engel Records Amazing 6th WSOP Circuit VictoryYoung tournament pro Ari Engel has just tied for the record number of WSOP Circuit titles ever won by a player, after capturing his sixth title at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut last week. On the way to achieving his remarkable feat, Engel had to first make his way through a 235 player field, collecting the  first-place prize of $29,634 along the way.
This year alone, Ari Engel has now made 11 final tables, including victory at the $500 Borgata Spring Poker Open for $26,048, and with his latest win boasts live earnings of $1,126,486, to go with the $2,100,952 he has won online playing under the screen name ‘Ari’.
The $580 buy-in WSOP Circuit Foxwoods ($75,000 Guaranteed) attracted a tough field of amateurs and pros alike, and by the time the final table had been reached Ari Engel was second in chips, with up-and-coming star Aaron Massey close behind in third.
The two pros would then eventually meet heads-up, with Massey subsequently tweeting: “I’m heads up against @realAriEngel. He’s got 1.7million and is going for his 6th ring. I got 1.1 and I’m going for my 3rd. #BCP #Stallone”
The back-and-forth heads-up battle would then rage on for almost an hour before Engel relegated Aaron Massey to a runner-up finish worth $18,313, to capture his sixth WSOPC title and tie with Alex Masek for the all time lead. Commenting after his incredible victory, Ari Engel said:
“Aaron is an incredible player and I have an incredible amount of respect for his game. Also, I want to thank my parents for their continued support. I won two events last year and this is a great start.”
The final table payouts were as follows:
1st Ari Engel        $29,634
2nd Aaron Massey    $18,313
3rd Bedda Nakhoul   $13,336
4th Victor Usatii   $9,850
5th Chris Rizzo        $7,408
6th Deon Nossel        $5,654
7th Steven Brackesy $4,374
