Arkadiy Tsinis

WSOP Circuit Event 5 continued the trend of huge turnouts for the series when 352 entries showed up for the $400 Six-Handed NLH tournament. The short-handed game played down to a talented final table and South Florid’s Arkadiy Tsinis conquered it to walk away with his fifth WSOP Circuit ring.

Our players combined to create a prize pool worth $181,820 and they made the money late on Day 2 with 53 getting paid.

Of those 352 entries, only 25 advanced to Day 2 and Tsinis was sixth coming back and he rode his stack to the final table. He stack was on a rollercoaster once they were down to seven players but he caught aces late to eliminate Michael Rossitto in fourth place.

Tsinis began heads up play by doubling up against chip leader Scott Dobbs on the first hand and he never looked back. He rivered a wheel on the last hand to take the title along with $39,527.

This is the fifth WSOP Circuit ring for Tsinis but he only owns his first. The rest he gifted to friends and family and he plans to do that with this one as well. Also, Tsinis isn’t resting on his laurels and immediately went the registration desk to register for the ongoing $1,125 Pot Limit Omaha game.

Congratulations to Arkadiy and thanks again to everyone for the great showing.

Arkadiy Tsinis

Arkadiy Tsinis kept the pressure on the shorter stacked Scott Dobbs and extended his lead. Then Tsinis limped his button and Dobbs moved all in for 865,000. After confirming the count, Tsinis called.

Tsinis: Ad5s
Dobbs: 9d2d

Dobbs needed to catch to stay alive and paired his deuce on the Ks7d2h flop. The 3h turn gave Tsinis outs on top of his over cards and he made a wheel on the 4c river to lock up the hand and the tournament.

Dobbs earned$24,429 for his runner-up finish while Tsinis took home $39,527 and his fifth career WSOP Circuit ring.
