Joseph Cappello Triumphs at 2016 WSOPC Horseshoe Baltimore

Joseph Cappello has won the 2016 WSOPC Horseshoe Baltimore Main Event, after defeating a field of 894 players over four days on his way to capturing the title, and collecting $292,500 in prize money. Following a victory which pushes his career earnings to $1,792,556, Cappello said:
“This means a lot. It means more than any amount of money I’ve ever won. To win an event like this with all these great players, 890 players, it feels excellent.”
The $1,675 Main Event was held at the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore, and featured a prize pool worth $1.5 million. Amongst the notable pros subsequently seeing a return on their buy-ins was Dennis Phillips in 68th ($4,005), Jared Jaffee in 58th ($4,350), Cornel Cimpan in 46th ($4,785), Tony Gregg in 39th ($5,310), Christian Harder in 36th ($5,955), Joe Kuether in 32nd ($6,750), Steve Dannenmann in 17th ($15,015), and Jake Schwartz in 16th ($15,015).
After the final table of nine got underway, Matt Bond proceeded to eliminate Philip Shing in 9th, and James Calderaro in 6th, while Joseph Cappello took care of Joe Reddick in 4th, and Alex Rocha in 3rd to set-up the final battle against Matt Bond for the WSOPC title.
At this stage, Joseph Cappello enjoyed a slight 46bb to 40bb chip advantage over his final opponent. Sixty-one hands would then be played before Bond saw his stack reduced to just 10bb, and so  moved all-in preflop holding Q-7. Cappello quickly made the call with pocket eights, and after the dealer laid out a K-10-8-3-3 board, Matt Bond had to settle for a runner-up finish worth $180,750, while Joseph Cappello was crowned the 2016 WSOPC Horseshoe Baltimore champion. The victory represents Cappello’s biggest payday to date, although he has enjoyed other six-figure scores in the past, including in 2007 winning the $5,200 Borgata Deep Stack Main Event for $283,800.
Final Table Results:
1: Joseph Cappello $292,500
2: Matt Bond $180,750
3: Alex Rocha $133,140
4: Joe Reddick $99,360

6: James Calderaro $57,525
7: Nickolas Kursman $44,610
