Hoyt Corkins wins second WPT title at Biloxi

Friday, 29 January 2010

Two-time World Series of Poker bracelet-winner and now two-time WPT champion Hoyt Corkins added to his honours last night with a victory at the World Poker Tour Southern Poker Championship.

Corkins, who has over $5,000,000 in total tournament cashes, defeated Jonathan Kantor heads-up to claim the $739,486 first-place prize after defeating a field of 208 players.

In the final hand, Kantor limped the button then called Corkins’s shove with King-Ten. His opponent held the superior A7 and an ace-high flop sealed the deal for the six-time WPT final tabler.

Corkins won almost three-quarters of a million dollars for his victory. The full final table payouts were as follows:

1. Hoyt Corkins $739,486
2. Jonathan Kantor $366,643
3. Jerry Vanstrydonck $196,829
4. Jared Jaffee $135,079
5. James Reed $106,134
6. Tyler Smith $86,837
