Carli Books Record 40th WSOPC Cash

Douglas (Rico) Carli

Doug “Rico” Carli continued to prove himself the most prolific player in World Series of Poker Circuit history this week, booking a record 40th cash with a second place finish at an Atlantic City prelim event.

The Alliance, Ohio resident finished second to New Jersey’s Shawn Sniffin in the $500 +60 No-Limit Hold’em tournament at Harrah’s Atlantic City Sunday that drew 621 players.

Although Carli said he was “very disappointed” with having to accept the $32,980 for second, instead of the $60,237 first-place prize, he has no issue being the best player few people have ever heard of.

“You just let your results speak for themselves,” he said.

The 54-year old retired stockbroker won his last Circuit ring in the H.O.R.S.E. event at Caesars Indiana in 2007, but he doesn’t spend a lot of time showing it off.

“I don’t wear my rings much,” he said. “The only time I might bring one out is if I want to use it as a card protector.”

At this point, Carli’s record appears to be almost untouchable as the player with second most cashes, Dean Shultz, has just 21 compared to his 40.

The event was just the second of 17 for the WSOP Circuit at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, which continues through Dec. 20.
