WSOPC Hammond Main Event 2010 Won By Kurt Jewell

Kurt Jewell has just won the WSOPC Hammond Main Event 2010, after defeating a field of 872 players over three days to take the title, and collect the $242,909 first place prize.
Jewell’s latest victory represents his biggest score to date, which previously stood at $40,136 for a 1st place finish at a $350 Borgata Poker Open side event in 2009. The 25-year old Kentucky player now takes his career tournament earnings to $337,595.
The big turnout at the $1,500 NL event in Hammond was a WSOP Circuit tournament record, and by the time the nine player final table got underway Kurt Jewell held a formidable chip lead, which he only relinquished  briefly during the day.
First to exit the final table in 9th ($23,120) was a short-stacked Casey Hayes whose Ah-Jh push was called by AK, followed shortly later by Daniel Cohen in 8th ($29,087) when his Ah-Kh ran into pocket A’s.
A short-stacked Bryan Devonshire was then unlucky to be eliminated in 7th ($37,047) after Edwin Choi choose the wrong time to make a move with 8c-2c against Devonshire’s pocket K’s. However, an 8-4-2 flop gave Choi two pair which held up to the river.
Choi with pocket kings then dispatched Will Souther in 6th ($47,772), and then holding pocket aces eliminated Nick Jikov in 5th ($62,384).
However, Choi’s luck ran out after a failed bluff and he was the next to leave in 4th ($82,514) followed soon after by William Reynolds in 3rd ($110,567).
The final heads-up phase between Kurt Jewell and Jared Kenworthy then lasted for about an hour before all the chips were pushed to the centre of the table with Jewell’s Q-J badly dominated by his opponent’s A-Q. However, a J on the river sealed Jared Kenworthy’s fate, who then walked away with $150,104 for his hard earned efforts.
Kurt Jewell was then crowned the WSOPC Hammond 2010 Main Event Champion, and was awarded a WSOPC National Championship ticket for next May in addition to the impressive $242,909 first place prize.
