Congratulations to Jim Anderson, from Wooster, Ohio, who has become the first Regional Champion of the 2010 World Series of Poker Circuit season.
Anderson came out on top of a tough final table that included notable professionals such as Gabe Patgorski, Bernard Lee, David Sands, Curt Kohlberg, Shannon Shorr and Brandon Adams. Anderson only had about $50,000 in winnings prior to day, but for his four-day effort here in Hammond, Indiana, he will take home $525,449.
Gabe Patgorski raised to 125,000 and Jim Anderson came over the top to 325,000. Patgorski then four-bet to 655,000 and Anderson moved all in.
Patgorski called and showed AJ, but he was crushed by Anderson’s AA. The board fell 8737J and Patgorski was eliminated.
Jim Anderson raised to 120,000 and Gabe Patgorski reraised to 360,000 from the big blind. Anderson called and the flop came down Q72.
Patgorski continued with a bet of 215,000 and Anderson called. The turn was the 10 and Patgorski checked.
Anderson checked behind and the river was the Q. Patgorski checked and Anderson checked behind. Patgorski showed A-K and that was good enough to win the pot and move him over the 2.5 million mark.
Play continues without a break as the blinds increase to 25,000-50,000 with a 5,000 ante.
Gabe Patgorski raised to 100,000 and Jim Anderson called. Both players checked to the river on a board reading KK965 and Anderson bet 130,000.
Patgorski called and showed ace high, which was enough to beat Anderson’s ten high. Patgorski is now just over 2 million in chips.
Seat 3 â€” Jim Anderson â€” 4,950,000
Seat 8 â€” Gabe Patgorski â€” 1,830,000
Bernard Lee moved all in for 710,000 and Gabe Patgorski made the call.
Lee showed 1010 and was racing against Patgorski AK. The board rolled out 953KJ and Lee was eliminated.
Bernard Lee moved all in from the small blind for his last 375,000 and Jim Anderson made the call.
Lee showed QQ and Anderson was well behind with K7. The board ran out A7545 and Lee doubled up, though he is still the short stack.
Jim Anderson raised to 90,000 on the button and Gabe Patgorski reraised to 300,000 from the small blind. Anderson reraised to 650,000 and after getting a count, Patgorski moved all in.
Anderson called off his 2.4 million and showed JJ. Patgorski was caught with his A6 and failed to outdraw his opponent when the board fell J93QQ.
Anderson now has about 5 million of the nearly 7 million chips in play.
Here’s a look at the approximate chip counts following Kohlberg’s elimination.
Seat 1 â€” Bernard Lee â€” 625,000
Seat 3 â€” Jim Anderson â€” 2,500,000
Seat 8 â€” Gabe Patgorski â€” 3,500,000
