It only seems appropriate that we would close out our first WSOP Circuit series with another blasting of a guarantee. The $250 Double Stack Event 14 drew 455 entries to push the $50,000 up to $91,000 and we couldn’t be happier.

Balzano: JdJc

Marshall was ahead for the triple up and stayed that way on the 8c6s3h4c8d board. O’Neal had the second-best hand but was left with only 45,000 after paying off Marshall. He was unable to spin it up and the 2018 WPTDeepStacks Tampa final table member was sent out in 20th place.
