Carter Phillips Wins $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Event at 2012 World Series of Poker
Phillips Pockets $664,130 For The Victory
Carter Phillips earned the second bracelet of his young career late Monday night when he took down event no. 31, a $1,500 no-limit hold’em tournament at the 2012 World Series of Poker.
Phillips defeated a monster field of 2,811 entrants, which generated a total prize pool of $3,794,850, $664,130 of which was set aside for the winner.
Standing in his way was none other than 2009 WSOP main event winner Joe Cada, who finished runner-up for a $412,424 payday.
Other notables at the final table included Tom Chambers, Jonathan Poche and Cherish Andrews, who became the 11th women at this summer’s WSOP to secure a top-ten finish. She eventually busted in fourth place, banking $210,083.
Phillips, from Charlotte, North Carolina, earned his first bracelet in 2010, winning a $1,500 six-handed no-limit hold’em tournament for $482,774. He now has lifetime tournament earnings of over $3.4 million.
Here is a look at the final table results.
