Palm Beach Kennel Club: Russ Dykshteyn Wins $202,535

All the chips went in preflop on the final hand and Russ Dykshteyn’s AK had Vincent Maglio’s AT dominated. The runout was Q 8 6 7 8 and changed nothing. Dykshteyn had Maglio covered and it was over. Dykshteyn had his first WSOP Circuit ring and $202,335. Maglio settles for second and $125,201.

The heads-up match only lasted about 15 minutes. Vince Maglio had the chip lead going in with about 7.2 million to Dykshteyn’s ~6 million. A couple of hands later, Dykshteyn has reversed their positions and had 7.7 million to Maglio’s 5.5 million. Then the final, fatal, hand played out.
 
The final table featured a couple of WSOP Circuit ring holders. Joe McKeehen has two rings, one of which is a Main Event Championship ring from Caesar’s Atlantic City in 2013. He finished 4th. The only other player at the final table with a ring was Luke Graham, who made back-to-back final tables here, finishing 8th this year and 6th last year. He has a circuit ring from Harrah’s New Orleans in 2013.

In this event, Dykshteyn bested a field of 658 entrants to earn the lion’s share of the $987,000 prize pool. The final 72 players got paid and it was a packed field. Mukul Pahuja, who has nearly $1.9 million in tournament earnings, just missed the unofficial final table, busting out 11th for $15,220. He followed Aaron Massey to the rail after Massey busted in 12th place ($15,220). Massey has over $1.5 million in earnings.

The last woman sitting in this event was Claudia Crawford. She finished 15th for $12,387. WSOP bracelet holders in the money: Josh Arieh, 17th ($10,206); Robert Cheung, $56th ($3,010) and David Diaz, 62nd ($3,010).

Ruslan ‘Russ’ Dykshteyn is a semi-professional poker player who usually sticks to cash games. “I hardly ever play tournaments and only at Borgata”. He lives in Brooklyn, NY, and said “I just came down to visit friends”. That’s the only reason he’s here playing this event. He’s usually tearing up the cash games in Atlantic City and rarely plays tournaments. He has one large tournament score prior to today, which is a 3rd place finish in the 2012 Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship, good for $112,950.

In addition to the prize money and gold ring, Dykshteyn also earns a seat in the season-ending National Championship to be held this spring.
