Robert Kuhn Wins 2016 WSOP Circuit Harrah's Atlantic City Main Event
25-Year-Old Poker Pro Tops Field of 370 Entries To Win $122,098
Robert Kuhn has won the 2016 World Series of Poker Circuit Harrah’s Atlantic City $1,675 no-limit hold’em main event, outlasting a field of 370 entries to win his first _WSOP Circuit) gold ring and the $122,098 first-place prize.
The 25-year-old poker pro from Barnesville, Ohio also scored 600 Card Player Player of the year points for the win. Current POY race leader Ari Engel finished fourth in the event for $40,937 and 300 POY points. This was his sixth final table of the year, with two titles won. Engel took down the Aussie Millions main event in in January for a seven-figure payday and just last week won his eighth WSOP Circuit gold ring in a prelim at this festival. He now sits 500 POY points ahead of second-place occupant Anthony Gregg in the standings.
Kuhn entered the nine-handed final table with 116 big blinds for the overall lead. By the time it got down to heads-up between him and Nenad Cvetkovic he held more than a 5-to-1 chip advantage.
On the second hand of heads-up play Kuhn min-raised to 80,000 from the button and Cvetkovic called. The flop brought the 876 and both players checked. The 2 rolled off on the turn and Cvetkovic bet 90,000. Kuhn made the call and the Q completed the board. Cvetkovic checked and Kuhn bet 100,000. Cvetkovic moved all in for 905,000 total and Kuhn went into the tank. After some thought he decided to make the call with the 83 for a pair of eights, which was good as Cvetkovic could only produce the K5 for a busted straight draw.
With that Kuhn locked up the title and Cvetkovic was sent to the rail as the runner-up, earning $75,452 for his deep run.
