Let's have a look at today's Poker Nation news post about poker.
Atlanta grinder Daniel Weinman narrowly beat Mizrachi heads-up to officially become this year’s champion of champions for $381,500. Mizrachi finished in third place in the 2016 edition of the tournament.
It’s been a quite a whirlwind 2017 for Weinman as he won his first-ever WPT title for $892,433 back in February 2017.
“It’s crazy going from just grinding circuit tournaments, playing and then occasionally playing one of these big buy-in events,” he said.
“You’re just hoping to min cash or go somewhat deep. To have a $900k score in February and follow it up with this… It’s incredible.”
Weinman was dominant at the final table and was the chip leader for a majority of time.
For his efforts Weinman also received an Audi 2018 S5 that was thrown in by the official WPT sponsor Audi. The free car was the cherry on top of the cake for Weinman as his rail was heckling him the entire night about his current vehicle.
A total of 66 Champion’s Club winners competed in the 2017 edition of the TOC. WPT president Adam Pliska is confident the TOC will surely return for 2018.
FINAL TABLE STANDINGS:
1. Daniel Weinman - $381,500 + $15,000 Seat in 2018 TOC
2. Michael Mizrachi - $218,000
3. Daniel Santoro - $133,525
4. David Ormsby - $95,375
5. Erik Seidel - $73,575
6. Dylan Wilkerson - $57,225
