Abraham Korotki Wins 2016/17 WSOP Circuit Harrah’s Atlantic City $1,675 Main Event
Abraham Korotki can easily say that Harrah’s Atlantic City is his lucky casino after winning a second WSOP Circuit Main Event title at the venue. The player scooped that second title earlier this week. Aside from a gold ring, his triumph secured him with a payout of $117,645.
Korotki bested 340 other players who had paid the $1,675 buy-in fee to enter the event. The victory road was bumpy and thorny, but the tournament’s eventual champion was clearly full of spirit and determination.
Korotki won his first WSOP Circuit Main Event title at Harrah’s more than a decade ago. Back then, he scooped $433,008 for his triumph. His massive payout could easily be explained with the fact that back then the event featured a $9,700 buy-in fee. Here it is important to note that that was Korotki’s first in-the-money finish in a WSOP Circuit tournament.
The nine-handed final table was reached on the event’s final Day 3. Korotki was not off to a very good start of nine-handed play, but luck again intervened to help him improve his position and survive and eventually triumph.
There are five more stops to be completed on the 2016/17 schedule of the WSOP Circuit before the season’s end. Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tulsa is currently playing host to one of the stops, where players will be vying for gold rings through March 27. Horseshoe Council Bluffs, Harrah’s Cherokee, Horseshoe Baltimore, and Harrah’s New Orleans are also set to play host to the last stops of the tournament series’ current season.
