Brett Schwertly defeats largest ever WSOP Circuit field

Tuesday, 19 October 2010

The World Series of Poker Circuit stop in Hammond, Indiana, has attracted the largest field in the history of the WSOP Circuit with 1,611 players competing in the $350 NL event to award a prize of $77,000 to Brett Schwertly.

This marks Schwertly’s fifth cash of this season of the WSOP Circuit but we shouldn’t be surprised – the Nebraska resident’s hometown is Omaha, so he has poker in the blood. He defeated Edward Corrado in the heads-up stages after a flopped two pair backdoored a flush; he was ahead the whole time against just top pair and all the chips went in on the river.

“It does not really change anything for me. But I am very competitive and I plan to play in more events. This is the third straight WSOP Circuit I have attended this year. So, I will keep doing that for a while. I was in good shape with points coming in and now I am the leader here, so far,” Schwertly said after pocketing his $77,000 prize and a seat in the 2011 Main Event.

The full final table payouts were as follows:
1. Brett Schwertley – $77,438
2. Edward Corrado – $47,975
3. Jack Ranallo – $36,203
4. Jacob Glanton – $27,511
5. Dan Whalen – $20,945
6. Daniel Pyszynski – $16,090
7. Jason Schroeder – $12,530
8. Michael Gassner – $9,848
9. Alex Smith – $7,860
