Californian Travis Lutes outplayed his final table competition to win the World Series of Poker Circuit event in Biloxi last night.

Lutes, whose previous biggest win was $367, took down $95,253 for winning the $1,600 buy-in tournament.

The final table was made up of relatively unknown players and it seemed from beginning it would come down to Lutes, who entered as the chip leader, and fellow big stack Farid Nasserazad.

By the time heads-up play came around it was indeed Nasserazad and Lutes for the title. Nasserazad started with a massive 6-1 chip lead over Lutes but the Californian was able to battle back and eventually win the WSOPC ring.

Although the majority of the poker world was focused on the 2010 WSOP Main Event, the Biloxi event still managed to attract 270 players.

Among the well-known players to take part were Circuit legend Doug “Rico” Carli, “Captain” Tom Franklin, Gabe Costner and Chris Tryba.

Six-time WSOP bracelet winner T.J. Cloutier made it farther than any of his fellow pros, eventually coming in 18th place to record a small cash of $4,891.

The WSOPC, which has been getting consistently bigger fields since lowering main event buy-ins this summer, will now head to the popular Tahoe stop where the next main event is scheduled to take place Nov. 21-23.
