WSOPC Florida: The title won by Jim Harnden

The success was at the appointment in the $ 1,600 buy-in main event of the World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) held at Palm Beach Kennel Club of Florida. Indeed, an increase of about 5% in attendance was recorded as 778 players entered in this poker tournament as the edition 2011 registered a field of 742 participants. The organizers managed to record a prize pool of $ 1,131,990. The final table was held last Monday and after a day full of action, the champion in the person of the Canadian Jim Harnden was known. This poker enthusiast of 58 years is not at his first exploit in poker tournaments. Indeed, he has already clinched the title at a No-Limit Hold'em tournament of $ 500 buy-in organized through the Canadian Poker Tour in 2008. His experiences enabled him to triumph in the tournament. And as a champion, he was entitled to the trophy, the first prize of $ 226,395, the gold ring and a ticket for the WSOP Circuit National Championship to be held in the magnificent Rio poker room in Las Vegas, in the month of May.

Note that most of the opponents of Jim Harnden in the final were young poker enthusiasts except his head's up opponent at the end, the American Rob Williamson, who is 44 years old. This latter bagged the second prize of $ 139,574. Two other Canadians were among the finalists who were Matthew O'Brien and Jamil Wakil who was respectively placed 3rd and 5th. The next step of the WSOPC will take place at Caesars Atlantic City from March 1st to 12, 2012.
