Jonathan Gaviao Wins 2014 WSOPC Harrah's Tunica

Jonathan Gaviao Wins 2014 WSOPC Harrah's TunicaJonathan Gaviao has triumphed at the 2014 World Series of Poker Circuit Harrah’s Tunica main event, after besting a field of 577 players over three days on his way to capturing the title, and collecting the $181,757 first place prize.
Following his impressive victory in Robinsonville, Mississippi, the 23-year-old Texas resident, said: “It’s wonderful. It’s always nice to win a ring and make a little bit of money. I couldn’t ask for anything more. I’m just going to be thankful. Getting to look back and know that God’s good. Win or lose, he’s always good… You can take away all the money, and I’ll still have everything I need.”
The $1,675 Main Event drew a good-sized field to create a prize pool worth $865,500, and amongst the notable players cashing in at the tournament was 5-times WSOPC winner Kyle Cartwright in 57th ($2,830), 3-times WSOPC winner Phillip Hui in 38th ($3,375), and  2008 November Niner Dennis Phillips in 12th ($13,571).
The final table of nine was then reached on Day 2 of the competition, and 45 minutes later the players took an overnight break with just six players remaining. First to exit was Timothy Tracy in 9th ($16,860), followed by Bryan McMullin in 8th ($21,222), and Cord Garcia in 7th ($27,073), who later tweeted:
“Finished 7th for 27k. Good paycheck but it’s always bitter-sweet not closing out. My big payday will come. Gl @GaviaoJ @cartermyers22.”
The next day, Jonathan Gaviao would progress all the way through to heads-up against Carter Myers, with the two players fairly even in chips. Soon after, the defining hand was played with Gaviao (K-3) and Myers (6c-7c) all-in on a Qc-3d-2c-Ks board, and when a Kc arrived on the river, Gaviao’s full-house beat his opponent’s flush to close out the win.
Final Table Results:
1st: Jonathan Gaviao – $181,757
2nd: Carter Myers – $112,420
3rd: Charles Hopkins – $82,205
4th: Brad Lipsey – $61,000
