WSOPC wraps two more events
The World Series of Poker Circuit stop at Harrah's in Atlantic City found two more winners with Events 5 and 6 the past couple days.
Event 5 was a $340 No-Limit Hold'em fest' that ended up with Massoud "Sammy NikJouian in the winner's seat. Event 6 continued the Hold'em theme with a $560 buy-in and saw Menan "Speed" Saydam get a win.
Event 5 $340 No-Limit Hold'em
Massoud Nikjouian is a familiar face on the tournament trail, but he hasn't made appearances on the WSOPC much. This is the second time he's come out for a Circuit stop, and the first time was also in Atlantic City.
He fared better this time around, taking down the $340 No-Limit Hold'em event over a field of 671 players for a $56,364 win.
Nikjouian, who is originally from Iran but now lives in Woodbridge, Va., was in good shape throughout Event 5. He came into the final table average in chips and sat back during the early action.
When play got down to five, however, he turned up the aggression and ended up with the win. The final-table results were:
|1st||Massoud Nikjouian||Woodbridge, Va.||$56,364|
|2nd||Christian Lusardi||Fayetteville, N.C.||$29,189|
|3rd||Jeffrey Colpitts||New York, N.Y.||$16,104|
|4th||Steve Lipkins||Boca Raton, Fla.||$14,091|
|5th||Carlos Delafuente||Plainview, N.Y.||$12,078|
|6th||Aaron Teel||Lansdale, Pa.||$10,065|
|7th||Kenny Moyer||Lansdale, Pa.||$8,052|
|8th||Christopher Lyon||Brick, N.J.||$6,039|
|9th||Nicholas Gibaldi||Brooklyn, N.Y.||$4,026|
Event 6 $560 No-Limit Hold'em
The sixth tournament in the Harrah's Atlantic City stop was another Hold'em event that drew 346 players to create a $173,000 prize pool.
Menan Saydam walked away with the biggest share of that prize pool, winning $53,630.
Saydam, who is originally from Istanbul but moved to the United States from London, learned poker about 15 years ago from a friend.
He's now played in at least seven WSOPC events, although this is his first win. The final-table results for the event were:
|1st||Menan Saydam||Arlington, Va.||$53,630|
|3rd||Michael Messim||New York, N.Y.||$13,840|
|4th||Robert Castoire||Cecelia, Ky.||$12,110|
|5th||David Zeitlin||Brooklyn, N.Y.||$10,380|
|6th||Frank Randazzo||Jamison, Pa.||$8,650|
|7th||Emmanuel Jannes||W. Hempstead, N.Y.||$6,920|
|8th||Michael Demeza||Wheaton, Md.||$5,190|
|9th||Ray Williams||Buffalo, N.Y.||$3,460|
The WSOPC action continues in Atlantic City today and through the weekend to build up to the main event next week. Stay tuned for more updates and for live updates from the main event when it kicks off.
