The talk of the WSOP Circuit Casino in Grafton, California was the performance of Canadian Ari Engel, who won two rings in two days and is tied for the most ring wins. It wasn’t long before the news became so important for Brazil. Marco Garcia of the USA was eliminated in Event #09.
Event #09 is one of the most important tournaments in the field, a $400 Monster Stack. The competition lasted three days and had 696 participants. Garcia, from the state of Goiás, finished second and took home a whopping $25,683. He was one opponent short of taking home his first career WSOP Circuit ring.
According to Hendon Mob, this is Marco’s most important result in a live race. All of his winnings have come from tournaments in the US, and his total live cashes are currently $52,659. Marco was second in chips when the Monster Stack final table was formed, and the final matchup was “logical” too, with the chip leader eventually crowned champion.
The Brazilian’s opponent was American Albert Tapia, who won the final with two pair. Names like Joseph Mussat, Eric Wallach, Jesus Capuz, Akbar Sarraf, Chun Wong, Daniel Lowery and Jeffrey Walsh were involved in the decision.
