Houston native Lance Garcia crowned Champion - WSOP Colossus
Lance Garcia clinched the win at the largest poker tournament in history, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Collossus Wednesday. Its about the "Colossus" No-Limit HoldEm event of $ 565 buy-in held at the Rio Convention Center. Prior to this feat, the 25years-old Houston-based poker player would only console himself with breadcrumb wins. His greatest achievement was a 7th-place finish in the $ 2,000 buy-in Main Event at Winstar Casino, Oklahama, for $ 83,640. He has always been a regular participant in the series. And this time, Garcia won big. For his victory, he pocketed his largest career cash, a whopping top prize of $ 638,880, along with a WSOP bracelet.
Garcia has come a long way from the win. He actually crushed a massive field of 22,373 entrants. He entered the final day 6th in chip count. But after five hours of play, he successfully made it through the heads-up by sending Paul Lentz and Ray Henson to the rail. He then battled it out against Mc Farland in the ultimate clash with a pretty modest chip advantage over his rival. After 18 hands, Garcia was some inches away from claiming the win as McFarland gradually lost great part of his chips. And it was the Houston native who eventually concluded the Collossus battle as winner. Ambitious, Garcia will once again part take in the WSOP Event # 14, the $ 1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em Shootout this Thursday. He hopes to cash a maximum gain as possible and set his whole heart at theWSOP Player of The Years trophy.
