Tyler Morris Wins 2014 WSOPC Choctaw For $369,503

Tyler Morris Wins 2014 WSOPC Choctaw For $369,503Tyler Morris has won the 2014 World Series of Poker Circuit Choctaw, after beating a field of 1,428 players over three days on his way to capturing the title, and collecting the $369,503 first-place prize.
The huge payout represented by far the biggest score of Tyler Morris’ tournament poker career, and following his victory, the East Texas native, commented: “It’s kind of surreal right now. I’m just shell-shocked. Like, I don’t even know what’s going on. I got down there late for the satellite entry. I was the last entry they even let into the satellite tournament, and then got into the main event.”
From such an unpropitious start, Morris then proceeded to outlast a top-flight tournament field, with notable cashes along the way including T.J. Cloutier in 58th ($5,655), Aaron Massey in 53rd ($6,233), Kevin Eyster in 40th ($6,940), and Joe Kuether in 27th ($11,867).
After the $1,675 Main Event reached its final table of nine, Tyler Morris (Q-10) would eventually eliminate Clyde Walters (A-8) in 3rd ($167,954) after moving all-in and being called on a 10-7-6 flop. The turn and river subsequently produced a harmless 3 and K to dispatch Walters to the rail, and usher in the heads-up phase of the tournament.
As the final battle commenced, Tyler Morris held a 3-to-2 chip lead over Shelby Penka, and following a lengthy heads-up encounter the defining hand was played with Penka (8-6) all-in preflop and up against the K-J of his opponent. The dealer then rolled out a K-K-6-3-10 board to consign Shelby Penka to a runner-up finish worth $229,194, while Tyler Morris was crowned the 2014 WSOPC Choctaw champion.
Commenting on his remarkable win, Tyler Morris, said: “Everyone at the final table was so cool. It really helped out play and made decisions easy..I started feeling good with five people to go..There was one guy [Jeff Gibralter] that had won the main event in Bossier last year that was left, he was pretty solid. But as far as everybody else goes, I had way more experience.”

1st Tyler Morris    $369,503
2nd Shelby Penka    $229,194
3rd Clyde Walters    $167,954
