Online World Series of Poker Super Circuit: Matt Stout Wins Second Title Of Series

Over $2.3 Million In Prize Money Has Been Paid Out Already With Six Events Left On The Schedule


The 2020 Super Circuit Series features more than $1,240,000 in guaranteed prize money across its 18 events. Through just the first 12 events, already more than $2.3 million has been paid out during the series, which means that the guarantees have been exceeded by more than a million dollars with several of the largest events still yet to kick off.

Each and every event of the series has beaten its guarantee, with many more than tripling the guarantee. Recaps of events 1-3, events 4-6, and events 7-9 can be found here.

The series is available to any players of legal age within the physical state limits of New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware. A Full listing of tournaments being offered can be found on Card Player’s tournament database page.

Event 10 was a $30,000 guaranteed $250 buy-in no-limit hold’em freezeout. It kicked off at 4:00 p.m. PST on Monday, March 23. By the time registration came to a close, 473 players had bought into the event. As a result, the prize pool grew to $110,209, which was paid out among the top 99 finishers.

Kyle 'kdruck' DrauckerThe biggest chunk of that money was ultimately awarded to Kyle ‘kdruck’ Draucker. The Las Vegas resident earned $27,001 and his second WSOPC gold ring for the win. He had secured his first piece of circuit hardware just five weeks earlier by taking down a $400 buy-in no-limit hold’em event at the WSOPC Rio Las Vegas series for $20,449.

Robert ‘Agamerob’ Gray took home $15,154 as the runner-up, while former poker television host and recent WSOPC online ring winner Lacey ‘ReySol’ Jones cashed for $9,258 as the third-place finisher.

Several other big names also made the final table, including Jack ‘oneeightyt’ Duong (6th – $4,849), WSOP bracelet winner Ari ‘philivey’ Engel (7th – $3,637), and WSOP main event commentator Jamie ‘danbilzerian’ Kerstetter (8th – $2,425). Notables who ran deep but failed to make the final nine include 2019 WSOP Circuit Planet Hollywood main event champion Michael ‘annie_r_u_ok’ Trivett (25th – $551) and Jonathan ‘Art.Vandelay’ Dokler (33rd – $408), who was making his sixth cash of the series. Dokler had won the previous event, the $525 buy-in ‘Monster Stack’ tournament, for $77,910. As it turns out, his cashing spree in this series was not yet finished. More on that below.
