Let's have a look at today's Poker Nation news post about poker in India.
Mike Cordell outlasted the 449-entry field to grab the World Series of Poker Circuit Horseshoe Baltimore $1,675 Main Event. The victory made him wealthier by $148,171 and he also took home his second circuit gold ring.
The Arkansas native who possesses a 2016 WSOP bracelet under his belt had a relatively quiet ride to the podium and proved to be simply unbeatable on Day 2 beginning the unofficial final table with 146 big blinds.
Cordell had a good start and quickly dismissed Josh Vizcarra in sixth place. Harrah’s Cherokee Main Event Champion Van Truong followed him soon to the rails in fifth place.
Rob Garrett was the next piece to fall in fourth place paving the way to an enthralling three-way action. Alex Queen and Jeremy Stein tussled to avoid the third-place finish for the pay boost while Cordell relentlessly whittled away until both stacks got down.
