Mukul Pahuja Wins 2016 WSOPC West Palm Beach for $193,095

A total of 613 players entered the $1,675 WSOPC West Palm Beach Main Event to create a prize pool worth $919,500. Three days later, and it would be seasoned pro Mukul Pahuja who would eventually triumph over the field to claim a second career WSOPC Main Event title, as well as the tournament’s $193,095 first place prize.
The WSOPC West Palm Beach Main Event attracted a number of recognizable pros, and amongst those then seeing a return on their buy-ins was Jonathan Hilton in 62nd ($3,007), Maurice Hawkins in 58th ($3,007), Russ Head in 48th ($3,264), and Tony Ruberto in 10th ($14,418).
Mukul Pahuja subsequently entered the final table of nine as the fourth biggest stack, but after he eliminated Dalton Mills (4th), and Eric Bunch (3rd), Pahuja then started the heads-up phase of the competition holding a commanding 3-to-1 chip lead over Adam Levy.
Not long later, the deciding hand was played with Levy reraising all-in holding A-6, only to be called by Pahuja with pocket tens. The 8-3-2-8-3 board which ensued sealed the deal, and so Adam Levy collected $119,434 for his runner-up finish, while Mukul Pahuja was crowned the 2016 WSOPC West Palm Beach champion. Commenting later on his victory, Pahuja said:
“[The final table] had some pros but the guys that didn’t have much tournament earnings were really tricky and really tough. They clearly played cash games and provided different challenges that I’m not used to seeing everyday playing tournaments.”
Following his victory in Florida, Pahuja now boasts $4,376,849 in live tournament winnings. The pro’s biggest score came in 2013, after finishing the $5,300 Seminole Hard Rock Championship Event in 3rd place for $872,625, with his second biggest payout being a runner-up finish at the WPT $ 3,500 Seminole Hard Rock Showdown for $691,965.

1: Mukul Pahuja $193,095
2: Adam Levy $119,434
