Bryant Miller Wins Second WSOP Circuit Gold Ring at Horseshoe Hammond

Miller won his second WSOP Circuit gold ring at Horseshoe Hammond just months after capturing his first piece at the same casino

Bryant Miller – a poker pro from Ohio – joined last night the packed club of two-time WSOP Circuit gold ring winners. The player took down the $1,125 No-Limit Hold’em at Horseshoe Hammond for his second piece and a top prize of $33,300.

The tournament attracted 111 entrants from here and there, including Miller, who has been playing more tournament poker lately. That created a prize pool of $111,000. The money was split into payouts for those occupying the top 12 spots, min-cashes starting from $2,319.

The event was played over two days, and the final day took place yesterday at the host casino. Action resumed with 14 players and Miller leading the way with a stack of 513,500 in chips.

The eventual champion kept his lead down to the unofficial ten-handed final table as well as throughout the rest of the day. He held 670,000 in chips at the start of ten-handed action. Of that stage of the tournament, Miller said that “the entire final table was fun” with “lots of good people.”

Of all the good people Miller played against yesterday, it was Daniel Bunce from Illinois whom he faced heads-up. Miller maintained his excellent momentum throughout the two-handed duel to eventually claim the title and the top prize. As for Bunce, he left with $20,582 in prize money for his runner-up finish.

A Lucky Casino

Miller told WSOP Circuit staff that he started playing poker professionally about three years ago. The player has been mostly playing cash games, but has been venturing onto the tournament scene more frequently as of late.

As mentioned earlier, Miller captured his second gold ring from the WSOP Circuit series last night. The player won his first piece a few months ago, when he bested the field of a $600 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em that took place at Horseshoe Hammond. Winning both his gold rings at the same casino is surely a sign that Miller should be playing more tournament poker and be visiting the venue more frequently.

Horseshoe Hammond will play host to the WSOP Circuit through Monday, March 4. Next up is the $1,700 Main Event. The tournament’s Day 1A, the first of two starting flights, will be played today, starting at noon local time. The event will feature one more starting flight and two more days of play, and will be completed on Monday, March 4. It features a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million, but that guarantee could and would hopefully be cracked upon the closure of registration.
