Mexico's Fernando Galvan Wins 2017 WSOPC Planet Hollywood

Mexico's Fernando Galvan Wins 2017 WSOPC Planet Hollywood Last weekend, the WSOP Circuit Planet Hollywood Main Event took place in Las Vegas, with the $1,675 buy-in tournament attracting 845 players to create a prize pool worth $1,267,500. Three days later, and Mexico’s Fernando Galvan managed to overcome the huge field, including Corey Hochman heads-up, to claim a gold ring, as well as a first place prize of $247,160.
The WSOP Circuit Planet Hollywood attracted a number of notable pros, and amongst those finishing in a top 90 money spot was Kevin Eyster in 85th ($2,865), Sorel Mizzi in 48th ($4,043), Eric Baldwin in 24th ($8,911), Ankush Mandavia in 19th ($10,571), and Bryan Devonshire in 16th ($12,688).
Fernando Galvan subsequently entered the final table as the chip leader, but soon found himself in white water after losing a huge A-K versus Q-Q flip which reduced his stack down to just 16 big blinds. Later, Galvan (Kh-Kc) made a great call against Ali Imsirovic (10d-10c), who made a huge bluff on an Ah-Qh-5d-7d-Jh board, propelling Galvan into the lead once more.
Galvan followed up by eliminating Mark Ioli in 7th, Ali Imsirovic in 4th, and Chris Tham in 3rd to get heads-up play underway against Corey Hochman for the title.
At this stage, Galvan enjoyed a massive 7-1 chip lead over his remaining opponent, who was sitting on a 20bb stack, and nine hands later the deciding hand was played. In the hand in question, Galvan (Q-Q) limped in preflop, before receiving an all-in shove from Hochman with A-3. The dealer then laid out a K-5-3-7-4 board to consign Hochman to a runner-up finish worth $152,734, in the process taking his career earnings past the $1 million mark.
Meanwhile, Fernando Galvan collected $247,160 for his impressive victory, representing his biggest score to date, and boosting his live tournament winnings to $452,426.

1: Fernando Galvan $247,160
