Ben Zamani Emerges Victorious in WSOP Circuit $1,675 Main Event, Las Vegas

The World Series of Poker Circuit recently had its Main Event in progress at the Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and with it came the exciting poker experience for all participants. The culminating event marked a total of 610 entries over the span of its four days of action and the big winner among them was Ben Zamani who laid his hands on the first-place prize amounting to $192,152.

The Main Event is one of the most anticipated poker tournaments at any given poker festival as it is guaranteed to provide great prizes as well as competitive action and poker players from all four corners of the world ready to give their luck a try. Such was the case with this most recent Main Event in the structure of WSOP Circuit which took place at the well-known gambling location in Las Vegas and brought together many enthusiasts ready to claim the WSOP Circuit Ring once the most skillful one among them reaches the throne.

Zamani came straight from Boca Raton, Florida to participate in this culminating poker event with the hopes that he can add more live earnings to his already generous winnings. His very first live poker tournament was back in 2007 and ever since then, he has managed to generate as much as $4,746,713 during those live events. Taking this into consideration, many poker fans well-acquainted with his poker career up to this point were quick to predict his deep run in this Main Event and they turned out being right.

Poker Action on the Felt

His largest winning up to this point was won in 2010 when he participated in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and his poker skills brought him to the fourth position no the official leader board. This is how he became the new owner of $1,000,000 and this increased his live winnings.

During his performance over this weekend, he proved his proficiency on the poker table when he played against established names in the industry to the likings of Ben Palmer, Barry Hutter, Jesse Yaginuma at the final table of this Main Event. All of them are familiar to the poker audience and the clashed at the home stretch. The runner-up position at the official leader board was reserved for Palmer, as he could not succeed in outplaying the champion. The Las Vegas local managed to win $118,849 for his deep run in the poker event.

Hutter is a fellow Floridian of the Main Event winner, but not even this helped him reach the top and he had to settle for the third place. Yaginuma is a poker player from Silver Spring, Maryland and even though he also had the potential to go far in the tournament, he was eliminated at the sixth position, winning only $37,012.
