Quinn Wins Tahoe, WSOPC Expands

The money and the bracelet

Danville, California's Stanley Quinn won the snowed-in World Series of Poker Circuit Tahoe main event at the Harvey’s Lake Tahoe Resort and Casino Tuesday.

The 51-year-old IT manager turned poker pro grabbed the $86,789 first prize, his first WSOPC gold ring and a seat at the 2010-2011 WSOP Circuit National Championship in Las Vegas next May after winning his seat into the event through a mega-satellite at Harvey's.

The $1,600 tournament drew 246 entrants despite huge snowfall in the Lake Tahoe area.

A total of 2,197 played in ten WSOP Circuit events at this year's Harvey's Lake Tahoe series.

Rocklin, California's Andrew Barber won the series points race and will join Quinn in the WSOP Circuit National Championship.

The Palm Beach stop goes off Feb. 17- Mar. 1, 2011 at the Palm Beach Kennel Club in South Florida, while Chester will run Apr. 28- May 9, 2011 at Caesars Entertainment’s own property in Pennsylvania.

Next up for the WSOPC is the Atlantic City series Dec. 4-22.
