Event #1 No-Limit Hold'em $300+40

The kickoff event began with 824 players hitting the tables, each paying a buyin of $300 + $40. Prize pool reached $247,201 in size with the money going to the top 81 finishers. Michael Litten became the winner with this being his second tournament ever! Outside of playing at a tournament at the Borgata, he gained most of his experience online as so many players do today. In the heads up with Anthony Morton, Michael was dealt a pair of Aces which he played slowly to get his opponent all in. The big hand gave Michael 3,000,000 chips which was the turning point for him. Things went of for a few more hands, but the championship was pretty much in Michael's pocket. Final table players and cashouts are below:

  1. Michael R Litten -- $64,272
  2. Anthony Morton -- $34,114

Event #3 No-Limit Hold'em $500+60

There were 297 players at event number 3 who played over two days to determine the champion. The cash pool rose to $148,500 with money going to the top 27. When it came down to the heads up, Sung Joo and Will Failla slugged it out over 7 hours and 191 hands before Joo got the winning hand. The victory hand went like this, Failla moved all-in with A 2 with Joo calling with A 8. The board showed K 5 3 7 8. And so even though a deal was struck to split the cash between the top 3 players, Joo walked away with a gold championship WSOP Circuit ring!

Event #4 No-Limit Hold'em $500+60

169 players climbed aboard for this two day event. Size of the pool came to $209,520 with money being paid out to the top 27 finishers. Wencheng Huang who is an actual brain surgeon in his home of China, surgically removed the players from the final table to become champion of this event. But even though first place was worth $44,480, a deal was struck when the table had 7 players left so that they would each receive $14,000 with the winner getting an additional $12,000. Now when the heads up took place, those two agreed to split the $12,000. Oh well, so much for the risk/reward theory! Here is how all players at the final table finished:
