Monster Stacks Flight B: Raising to $300K

The $200,000 guarantee was long gone before the start of Flight B and the prize pool crossed the $300,000 mark before the first 90 minutes of the day were in the books. It’s ramping up to be another huge day in the Event Center.

We found a couple players with big final table appearance already in the series. Michael Tait cruised to the $600 Six-Handed final table and was unlucky to go out in sixth place. Massimo Dirienzo made the massive Double Stack final table and finished fifth out of 2,433 for a $60K pay day.

Monster Stacks Flight B: Hitting the Guarantee

$400 Monster Stack NLH (Re-Entry)
$200,000 Guaranteed | Structure
Level 1:  100/100

Today we roll out the second flight of the WSOP Circuit Monster Stack and there’s little drama over hitting the $200,000 guaranteed prize pool. With 574 entries in yesterday’s flight, only 33 more are needed today to make the mark and there will be that many registered before cards go in the air.

Now we’ll see how big they can make it.

They will start with 30,000 stacks and the first 24 levels last 30 minutes before increasing to 45 from Level 25 forward. Late registration is available until the start of Level 13 at 6pm following a  30-minute dinner break and they can re-enter as often as needed during that time.

The flight will come to an end once the field hits 8% or the end of Level 24, whichever comes first.

Entries: 352
Prize Pool: $181,280
February 10-11, 2020

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.

Final table results:

1st: Arkadiy Tsinis – $39,527 + WSOP Circuit ring
2nd: Scott Dobbs – $24,429
3rd: Ruben Javier Vallejo – $16,710
4th: Michael Rossitto – $11,672
5th: Stephan Nussrallah – $8,330
6th: Michael Tait – $6,076
7th: John Gorsuch – $4,533

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.

On the first hands of heads up and the last hand before the break, they saw a flop of Kc7d3s. Dobbs bet 125,000 and Tsinis called on the button. The turn came 8s, Dobbs checked, Tsinis bet 325,000 and Dobbs called.

The river was 5s, Dobbs checked again, Tsinis bet 650,000 and Dobbs announced all in. Tsinis called at risk for 1,895,000 and showed Ks3c for two pair kings and treys to beat the two pair sevens and fives of Dobbs with 7h5h.

After the hand and the chips were shuffled over, they took a ten-minute break.

Ruben Javier Vallejo

Shortly after Michael Rossitto was knocked out, Ruben Javier Vallejo put his 595,000 stack in the middle after a AhQh4h flop and Scott Dobbs called.

Dobbs: Kh8h
Vallejo: KdQd

Vallejo flopped middle pair but was way behind Dobbs’ flopped heart flush. The board finished 7s turn and Tc to send Vallejo out in third place.

Scott Dobbs – 5,065,000 (101 bb)
