Another event of the 2018/19 WSOP Circuit series’ Choctaw Durant stop was brought to an end yesterday, with Anthony “Bart” Bogard emerging victorious from a 147-entry field to take home his second gold ring of the current WSOP Circuit season.
Tuesday evening saw Bogard crowned as a champion of the eighth event in the series, the $400 No-Limit Hold’em and scooped a prizepool portion of $13,583 for his accomplishment. As mentioned above, the victory also brought him his second gold ring in the same series, and even the same stop, in a few months.
The 38-year-old player went on a tear, with him finishing in the money in six events from the first Choctaw Durant stop of the WSOP Circuit of the season. He grabbed his first gold ring at the time, by winning another $400 NLHE event in November, and now returned, for a second round.
