Teasdale Is Championship Winner at Harrah’s Atlantic City

 Adam Teasdale outlasted a field of 616 entrants in the $1,675 Harrah’s Resort Main Event early Tuesday morning in Atlantic City, NJ. The score marked the largest of the aspiring pro’s career, awarding him better than $194,000, a WSOP Circuit gold ring and a berth in the $1 Million WSOP National Championship.

 Teasdale lost his father about a year ago, making the championship performance that much more dear to him.

 “This is absolutely going out to him and the rest of my family,” Teasdale of his father. “I told them that I could do it and this is just a start to a new beginning for me.”

 Teasdale began Day 3 as the chip leader but took a few hits and started the final table fifth in chips. The eliminations were swift, and before you knew it Teasdale was heads up with Wade Woelfel. With more than 200 big blinds in play tournament staff and spectators alike settled in for what was sure to be a marathon battle.

 After a relatively uneventful duel, Teasdale and Woelfel played what would be the last hand of the tournament.

 On a board of [Qd][Qh] [6h][4s] Woelfel checked to Teasdale who made a bet of 460,000 (at the 40,000/80,000 level). Woelfel then raised all-in for 3,640,000 and Teasdale had a decision to make. After tanking for what seemed like five minutes Teasdale made the call and tabled [9s][4h] for a pair of fours.

 “Good call,” Woelfel said, tabling [As][5h] for ace high.

 The river came the [Qc] and Teasdale was crowned champion. Woelfel earned $120,018 for his runner-up performance.

 “(It feels) absolutely amazing,” Teasdale said. “I moved to North Carolina and that’s where I discovered this awesome game that’s hopefully going to change my life. I’m off to a good start.”

 Teasdale did all he could to stay positive throughout the three-day marathon. He even went as far as littering his chip stack with Hall’s wrappers inscribed with motivational sayings. From the rail they looked like garbage, but to Teasdale they were reminders to stay positive.

 “I had gone down to the gift shop before Day 1 and grabbed Vitamin C,” Teasdale said. “There were little quotes (on the wrappers) to keep your head up when something goes bad. There were a whole bunch of positive sayings that you need to keep in the back of your mind when you’re playing the game because it’s stressful.”

 Teasdale had success with the inspirational quotes and eventually found himself in the winner’s circle. When asked if he would continue to sprinkle the wrappers on his chip stack while playing poker his answer was painfully logical.

 “I would assume so,” he said with a smile. Teasdale was the most notable of cashers, placing first and pocketing $194,040, but others to finish in the money included Feming Chan (11th), Brandon Fish (14th), Will Failla (31st), Jamie Kerstetter (34th) and gold bracelet champion Chris Reslock (58th).

 The Main Event concluded on the heels of what was a hugely successful Circuit series at Harrah’s Resort. Just weeks after Hurricane Sandy took its toll on the East Coast the event drew a field of almost 900 in the opening weekend and the Main Event drew 616, a mere two entrants short of last year’s field. Indeed, Atlantic City bounced back from the devastation and all signs point to great things to come.

 Brandon Fish won Casino Champion honors, following up an Event 2 victory with a 14th place finish in the Main Event. More information on Fish’s performance in Atlantic City will be made available on WSOP.com in the coming days.

 The Main Event was the tenth of 12 gold ring events on the WSOP Circuit schedule at Harrah’s Resort. The $1,1675 No-Limit Hold’em tournament attracted 616 entries. The total prize pool came to $924,000 and the top 63 players were paid.

 Teasdale is an aspiring poker pro from Marinette, WI. He now resides in North Carolina and this marks his largest tournament score to date.

 It took Kunal Shah less than 13 hours to lay claim to his first WSOP Circuit gold ring in Event 9, a $365 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo tournament, Friday at Harrah’s Resort. The event began at 12 p.m. and Shah held all the chips by 1:40 a.m. Take into account the one-hour dinner break and you’ve got a tournament that played out in its entirety in 12 hours and 40 minutes.

 “I think the turbo tournaments are great,” Shah said. “It gives a lot of opportunity to players who are worried less about the money and want the ring. It’s an amazing feat for them and it gives something to prove.” Shah won $23,289 and a gold ring, and moved into a nine-way tie in the Casino Championship at Harrah’s Resort, but the final table had much larger Casino Championship implications for a few other entrants, specifically the runner up, Stephen Hesse.

 Hesse came a mere one spot short of taking the outright lead, finishing second and earning 37.5 points. He previously earned 10 points for a 15th place finish in Event 7, a $1,125 No-Limit Hold’em event.

 Additionally, Randal Sklar needed a fifth place finish in Event 9 to tie the leaders and a fourth place finish to surpass them. He finished sixth, earning 22.5 points. Sklar sits in solo second with 47.5 points while Hesse is in a three-way tie for third with 42.5.

 Daniel Vehring also had a chance to take the Casino Champion’s lead, but came up well short of the first place finish necessary, cashing in eighth.

 Three events remained City (Cont’d from page 1) for players to earn points to the season-ending National championship.

 Event 9 was the ninth of 12 gold ring events on the WSOP Circuit schedule at Harrah’s Resort. The $365 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo tournament attracted 326 entries. The total prize pool came to $99,104 and the top 33 players were paid.

 The tournament played out in its entirety in one day beginning at 12 p.m. Friday. The nine-handed final table began at 11 p.m. Play finished at about 1:40 a.m.

 making the total duration of the final table two hours and 40 minutes and the total duration of the tournament 13 hours and 40 minutes including a one-hour dinner break.

 James Gilbert Bests the Best in Event 7 $1K buy-in James Gilbert outlasted a star-studded field in the Harrah’s Resort $1,125 No-Limit Hold’em tournament Friday. The young pro won $50,106, a WSOP Circuit gold ring, and 50 points toward the Casino Champion’s race on the eveof the Main Event.

 “It feels great. This is my first live win,” Gilbert said. Gilbert recently returned from Costa Rica, where he lived for three months (in order to play online). He says this was his first live tournament since the hiatus. Day 2 of the tournament began with serious National Championship points implications. Yossi Azulay led the 13 remaining players, marking a record-extending 13th Circuit cash in 2012- 2013. Azulay’s stellar play all but guaranteed him first in the National points race, but a win would break the six-way tie at Harrah’s Resort and give him sole possession of the Casino Championship lead with five events to go.

 Azulay did, in fact, snag the lead in the National points race, but the Casino Championship headlines fizzled when he was eliminated sixth for $7,198.

 The night belonged to Gilbert, who found himself heads up with National Championship points contender, Aaron Massey.

s Massey was mathematically unable to best Azulay atop the National leaderboard, but a first place finish would give him sole possession of second.

s Gilbert began the headsup battle with a sizeable chip lead, but Massey proved to be a difficult test. “He was really great,” Gilbert later recalled of his opponent. “I remember one of the first hands at the final table he five-bet shoved on me and I slowed down after that. He really kept me in check.”

s Gilbert got the best of Massey, pulling a five-bet shove of his own holding [Tx][Tx] against Massey’s pocket fours. The board came no help to Massey who exited second for $30,952.

s “We were definitely the two most aggressive players at the table, so it was really standard,” Gilbert said of the last hand.

s Massey has recorded five cashes including three final tables and his first Circuit victory at Horseshoe Southern Indiana in 2012- 2013. He is tied for fourth on the National leaderboard with 142.5 points.
