A year ago this month, David DiBernardi won his first WSOP Circuit ring down at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, but after busting out of the Main Event on Sunday, DiBernardi was prepared to call it a series.

“I almost didn’t play this event,” said DiBernardi. “I was waiting in line because I min-cashed the Main Event, and my buddy said, ‘Dude, you’ve got to hop in this.'”

DiBernardi did hop into it, and finished Day 1 third in chips. By the time the final table began, he had moved up the leaderboard to second in chips, and when the final river card hit, DiBernardi was victorious in winning his second WSOP Circuit ring in his own hometown.

When asked about the WSOP Circuit coming to Tampa, DiBernardi said, “I’m from Tampa, and I’ve been waiting for something like this. It’s awesome, what the Hard Rock has done. This room has been amazing. It was a great series, and I’m excited that it’s coming back in September.”
