Victory Bell at the WSOP Circuit Regional Championship

Victory Bell at the WSOP Circuit Regional Championship

Thursday, 23 December 2010

The second of the World Series of Poker Circuit Regional Championship events concluded early this morning with Chris Bell overcoming a final table that included tournament veteran Todd Terry to beat the field and claim a $358,295 first prize.

The 136 entrants took three days to narrow the field down to a final table with Bell leading the field as the final nine went toe to toe on the felt. The blinds were 15,000/30,000 when Chris Klodnicki 3-bet the big blind heads-up and then bet out at a 5d-3d-6c flop. Bell moved all-in and Klodnicki quickly called with 4-6 for top pair and a gutshot draw. He was in bad shape against 3-3 for a flopped set, though, and couldn’t find his outs on the turn and river.

Klodnicki had to settle for a second place prize of $221,452 but misses out also on the perks of being crowned champion – Bell not only takes home over $100,000 more but also wins a WSOP Circuit ring; entry to the 2011 Main Event and a place in a $1,000,000 National Championship WSOP Circuit televised freeroll.

Must be nice.
