Jake Bazeley Wins 2014 WSOPC Harrah's Cherokee For $240k

Jake Bazeley Wins 2014 WSOPC Harrah's Cherokee For $240kThe 2014 World Series of Poker Circuit Harrah’s Cherokee main event attracted a field of 797 players to the casino located in Cherokee, North Carolina, and after three days of action it was 31-year-old  Jake Bazeley who saw off the competition to claim the gold winners ring, and collect the $239,096 first place prize. Commenting after his winning performance, the Cincinnati pro who now boasts $1,938,615 in live tournament earnings, said:
“It hasn’t even set in yet. I’ve been working so hard to get a win and been so close. Poker, you can get close and you still get paid well, but you don’t get that fully satisfied feeling until you win. Hopefully when this sets in I’ll feel like I’ve accomplished what I wanted to.”
The $1,675 Main Event created a prize pool worth $1,195,500, and amongst the notable pros subsequently getting paid was Jared Jaffee in 69th ($3,240), Sean Small in 63rd ($3,527), Scott Davies in 33rd ($5,475), Paul Sokoloff in 29th ($6,2676), Kyle Cartwright in 21st ($10,126), and Darryll Fish in 11th ($18,148).
By the time the final table of nine had been reached, Jacob Bazeley was second in chips, and he added further to his stack after being dealt A-Q and sending Mark Dumonski (A-J) to the rail in 9th ($22,583). Bazeley (A-J) then did likewise to Raymond Walton (K-Q) in 4th ($80,995), and Caleb Brown in 3rd ($108,671) to usher in heads-up play against Chad Deberry for the title.
As the final battle got underway, Bazeley held a nearly 3-1-chip lead over his remaining opponent, and the deciding hand was eventually played with both players all-in preflop and Bazeley’s 4-4 up against the K-Q of Deberry. The dealer then put out a A-9-4-3-x board to consign Chad Deberry to a runner-up finish worth $147,405, while Bazeley was awarded the title.
“I never really go by leaderboards and points and stuff like that. I’m just more about making money and at the same time having fun and being competitive with it. Winning is winning. I don’t really do it to get points or a ring or anything. I just want to win,” explained Bazeley after his victory.

1 Jacob Bazeley    $239,096
2 Chad Deberry        $147,405
