Darryll Fish Wins 2015 World Series of Poker Circuit Palm Beach Kennel Club Main Event

Florida Native Captures First WSOP Circuit Title And $173,189 First-Place Prize


Darryll FishA total of 537 entries were made in the 2015 World Series of Poker Circuit Palm Beach Kennel Club $1,675 buy-in no-limit hold’em main event, building a $805,500 prize pool. In the end the lion’s share of that money was awarded to Florida native Darryll Fish.

For the win Fish earned his very first WSOP Circuit ring and the $173,189 first-place prize. This was not his largest score, but is definitely his highest profile live tournament title.

“I’m not in the game for the titles,” he said after securing his victory, “but taking one down is a really satisfying feeling," Fish told "And even though I know I’m capable of winning, it’s nice to have that reinforced by actually doing it.”

In addition to the hardware and the money the 28-year-old poker pro from Cape Coral also scored 840 Card Player Player of the Year points, which were enough to move him into 28th place in the overall when combined with the points he earned with a third place finish in a $2,200 prelim at the Lucky Hearts Poker Open. He has 984 total POY points, with year-to-date earnings of $197,049.

Here is a look at the payouts and POY points awarded at this final table:
