WSOP Circuit 2011: Victory of the youngest player John Riordan

The exception proves the rule. That's what we can say about the World Series of Poker Circuit 2011 of Palm Beach Kennel Club in Florida. Indeed, if the age stipulated by the U.S. law to play poker is 21 years, some States and Indian casinos became used to host on their tables players aged 18 and more. As if this rule wasn't enough, it seems that among the 712 participants at this stage in Florida, the first place of this circuit was won by the younger players who is John Riordan, aged 18 years only. He is now the youngest poker champion before inter alia, the six-time WSOP champion and member of the Poker Hall of Fame, TJ Cloutier, the world champion 2007, Jerry Yang or the one who achieved a new paid place on the circuit, Dwyte Pilgrim.

About the details of this circuit, the stage of Palm Beach Kennel Club in Florida of $ 1,600 buy-in is part of the World Series of Poker Circuit 2011. This new step was attended by a huge field of 712 participants that let organizers collect a prize pool of $ 1,035,960. Thus, there was the victory of the very young local player John Riordan who pocketed a gain of 210,180 dollars with an extra seat for the WSOP Main Event of $ 10,000 buy-in in Nevada, but unfortunately, he will have to wait 3 more years to be eligible to participate. In addition, 71 other players behind him have been paid. For information, from March 2 to 13 will take place the next step of the WSOPC 2011 Atlantic City, New Jersey with nine events and the same number of gold bracelets to win with the Main Event.
