Tuan Phan Wins WSOP Circuit Harrah's Atlantic City Tuan Phan has won the World Series of Poker Circuit Harrah’s Atlantic City Main Event, after defeating a field of 618 players to lift the title, and collect the $188,830 first place prize.
The $1,600 buy-in WSOPC event boasted the second biggest WSOPC field of the season and generated a prize pool of $899,190. Some of the top pros attracted to the tournament included  Chad Brown, Bryan Colin, John Cernuto, Beth Shak, Amanda Musumeci, Eugene Todd, and Matt Brady.
However, none of these pros were able to make the money and when the third and final day of the competition got underway, it was Tuan Phan who was out in front of the remaining 22 players as the chip leader.
Tuan Phan then proceeded to eliminate eight of his nine opponents at the final table to take down the biggest score of his career.
First out was Mike Devinsky in 9th ($17,516) holding pocket jacks to Pham’s pocket queens, followed by Denis Gnidash in 8th ($22,048), whose A-K shove failed to improve against Pham’s pocket sevens.
Kevin Kaikko’s As-Ks push then foundered against Pham’s A-J call with the board falling 7-J-7-A-10. He collected $28,127 for his 7th place finish, while Anthony Zinno left with $36,372 in 6th when his pocket sixes lost to Pham’s K-J.
The Tuan Phan show continued with a show-down with Manh Nguyen (A-Q) on a 5-4-A flop against his pocket twos, with a 2 on the river sealing Nguyen’s fate (5th for $47,684). Phan (J-J) then eliminated Larry Riggs with pocket fives in 4th ($63,375), while Marc Andre Roy fell in 3rd place ($85,405) holding two pair to Pham’s full house.
Less than an hour later and Tuan Phan had dispatched his last victim Hao Le, whose pocket aces were no match for Pham’s K-3 on a 3-2-J-3-8 board. Hao Le then collected $116,796 for his runner-up finish, while Tuan Phan won $188,830 for his comprehensive victory and demolition of the final table  at the Atlantic City event.
