NACPT Choctaw Prelims -- Day 5 Results

Former WPT Hostess Bubbles Event 10, Three New NACPT WInners Decided


Day five of the Native American Casino Poker Tour Choctaw is in the books, with three brand new winners at the NACPT’s inaugural stop. Here are the results:

Event 9 — $200 No-Limit Hold’em

Victor JohnsonA total of 44 players put up the $200 buy-in in Event 9, creating a $7,469 prize pool. Victor Johnson of Arlington, Texas came out on top, earning $2,463 for his efforts. A total of five players made the money, and here is the complete payout information:

1. Victor Johnson — $2,463
2. Benjamin Reason — $1,523
3. Feti Staraveci — $1,060
4. Jafar Kamarei — $822
5. Robert Biesiedzinski — $701

Event 10 — $125 No-Limit Hold’em

Jacque WilliamsEvent 10 drew 38 players, including former video hostess for the World Poker Tour Jacque Williams. Williams probably picked up something during her time interviewing the world’s greatest tournament players, as she made her first World Series of Poker cash this summer in a $1,500 event, and made a deep run today, eventually busting in fifth place. Williams recouped her buy-in, as a deal was made between the final five to expand the money bubble.

Theron CookWith the remaining players in the money, the rest of the tournament went quickly. The eventual winner of the event was Theron Cook of Hemstead, Texas. For the win he took home $1,456. Here is the complete payout information:

1. Theron Cook — $1,456
2. Clifton King — $971
3. Michael Foley — $485
4. Marc Porter — $324

Nightly 7 p.m. $125 No-Limit Hold’em

Timothy Gilliam
The 7 p.m. event drew 28 players, with the top three making the money. In the end, Timothy Gilliam of Celeste, Texas came out on top, earning $1,133. Here is the complete payout information for the event:

1. Timothy Gilliam — $1,133
2. James Thomas — $680
