Charles “Woody” Moore took down the World Series of Poker Circuit Horseshoe Southern Indiana title in Elizabeth, Indiana Tuesday night.

The veteran pro, who already had $707,483 in career tournament earnings coming into the event, added another $99,878, a WSOP Circuit ring and a seat at the million dollar World Series of Poker Circuit National Championship scheduled for Las Vegas next year after going wire-to-wire to book the win at the final table.

Moore, who made the final table of the WSOPC Council Bluffs main event less than two weeks ago finishing in fifth place, said his goal coming in was to collect enough points to compete for entry into the Championship.

Now that he's won his way in, Moore told WSOPC staff he's setting a new goal.

"Now we have to get my wife qualified,” he laughed.

While Moore entered the final table as the chip leader and held it until he got heads up, it took over three hours to get past runner-up Kevin Calenzo and book the win.

The 2009 WSOPC main event at Horseshoe Southern Indiana drew just 55 players, but this year 251 entered the $1,600 buy-in tournament creating a $416,160 prize pool.

Big names including the legendary T.J. Cloutier and 2009 WSOPC Player of the Year Dwyte Pilgrim were among them.

Here's how the final table finished up:

1 Charles Moore $99,878

2 Kevin Calenzo $61,725

3 John Holder $44,787

4 Mike Foster $33,043

5 Kris Bradshaw $24,782

6 Brian McKain $18,885

7 John Alfera $14,616

8 Jorge Solorzano $11,486

9 Joel Merwick $9,164
