Cary Marshall Triumphs at Tahoe

Cary Marshall, from King Salmon, Alaska won the $1,675 buy-in Main Event Championship. The victory paid $139,260. Marshall collected his first WSOP Circuit gold ring as the symbol of victory. He will also play as an automatic qualifier in the season-ending National Championship. Marshall is a 62-year-old professional poker player. He’s previously enjoyed success both online and live, with several big cashes, including two deep runs last year at the WSOP in Las Vegas (13th and 15th). No doubt, Marshall understands the ups and downs of the game.

 “I have a love-hate relationship with poker,” said Marshall, struggling to find words to express his happiness after winning his biggest poker prize ever. “I love it sometimes when you run good, but there’s times when you hate it, too. That’s what poker is about.” Marshall undoubtedly loves poker, at least on this night. Following an extraordinary three-day run in the Main Event, Marshall had just about everything go his way.

 “I admit I got lucky a few times here to win,” Marshall said. “I hit trips a few times at the right moment. And then on the final hand, I had a straight and I guess I got lucky that Derrick (Yamada) had trips that time and I got the call.” Indeed, the heads-up match between Marshall and Yamada capped a marathon final table that went more than 12 hours. The heads-up match showed no signs of letting up, at least until the final, fateful, some would say “cooler” hand. The final pot of the tournament was pushed Marshall’s way when he made a straight against Yamada’s three jacks. This tournament wasn’t just memorable to Marshall.

 It will be talked about and ultimately remembered for other reasons, too. For instance, the Main Event set a new record as the largest championship event ever in the nine-year-history of WSOP Circuit events played at Lake Tahoe. The official closing number was 422 players. This was up more than 20 percent over last year’s turnout, which was 327 players. The prize pool amounted to $633,000. The top 45 finishers collected prize money.
