Poker Leaderboard: WSOP Circuit Rings

The World Series of Poker Circuit returned to live and in-person action in late November of last year, after having moved all WSOPC gold ring events online for much of 2020 and 2021. A lot has happened in the first eight circuit stops, including some movement near the top of the all-time WSOPC titles leaderboard.

Jeffrey Trudeau Jr. became just the fifth player to win 10 or more rings by taking down the $2,200 buy-in high roller event at the first-ever WSOPC series held at Isle Casino Pompano Park. Trudeau defeated Jake Schwartz heads-up to top the 187-entry event for a $93,116 payday.

David Larson secured his eighth ring by taking down a $400 buy-in no-limit hold’em event at the WSOPC stop at The Bicycle Casino last December. The Las Vegas resident topped a field of 107 entries to pocket $9,994 and the coveted hardware.

Blake Whittington took down a $1,100 buy-in event at the WSOPC Harrah’s Cherokee series, which was the first live circuit stop after the online-only hiatus. He beat out 423 entries to earn $85,574 and his seventh gold ring.

John Holley also locked up his seventh ring in recent months, emerging victorious from 178 entries in the $400 buy-in no-limit hold’em event at the WSOPC Horseshoe Tunica stop with $14,588.

Scott Stewart joined the 30 players in the history of the circuit to win six or more titles by winning the $3,250 buy-in high roller event at the WSOPC Thunder Valley stop, beating a 69-entry field to bank $65,733.
