Kammar Andries Claims Victory at WSOPC Coconut Creek

Kammar Andries Claims Victory at WSOPC Coconut CreekThe WSOP Circuit, which has been running since 2005, stopped at the Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek, Florida last week, with the location proving a popular destination after 827 players entered its $1,675 Main Event. Following four days of action, its first place prize of $241,898 was then claimed by Kammar Andries, who had just $56,753 in winnings going into the tournament.
Over the previous few days, Andries had taken part in a number of games held at the casino, including a private cash game session of PLO. Interestingly, he then determined not to enter the Main Event and had begun his drive back home to Orlando before taking a rest stop that refreshed him enough to want to turn around and head back to Coconut Creek once more. That proved a fateful decision, and commenting upon his victory a few days later, the 40-year-old physical therapist explained:
“In my dreams, I just wanted to win a ring, honestly. Usually I just come in for one tournament and leave.”
The WSOPC Coconut Creek Mian Event featured a prize pool of $1,240,500, and amongst the players finishing in the money was Jerry Wong in 90th ($2,8040), Matthew Stout in 86th ($2,804), Jake Schwartz in 69th ($3,312), Joe Elpayaa in 15th ($15,072), and AJ Kelsall in 11th ($18,521).
At the final table, Kammar Andries (K-K) eliminated David Gunas (A-6) in 9th, and Dafney Adisson in 6th, before being dealt pocket aces and sending LaVann Williams (A-K) to the rail in 5th. Continuing his tear, Andries (A-10) knocked out Jason Hill (A-Q) in 4th, while Mike Linster took care of Brian Altman in 3rd to initiate heads-up play against Andries for the WSOPC ring.
Andries started the final phase of play holding a roughly 2-to-1 chip lead over his remaining opponent, and before long the deciding hand was played with Andries (10-3) and Linster (6-6) moving all-in on a K-4-3-10 board. A harmless 2 then fell on the river, handing Andries the title, as well as a seat through to the Global Casino Championship.
Meanwhile, Mike Linster collected $149,480 for his deep run in the tournament, and now has $1,759,847 in earnings to his name, including winning the 2013 WPT Jacksonville Main Event for $296,521.

1: Kammar Andries $241,898
2: Mike Linster $149,480
