Three starting flights at the World Series of Poker Circuit’s Tunica main event built a field of 642 entries at Tunica Horseshoe Casino & Hotel in Mississippi.

The $1,700 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament had a prize pool worth $972,630, and the top 92 players all cashed for at least $2,564 in prize money during the five-day event.

Just the final six players returned for day 2, and the final day was a short one lasting only three hours before Preston McEwen was crowned the champion. The 34-year-old from Memphis, Tennessee won the top prize worth $183,653. That is the largest cash on his poker resume, and it took his career tournament earnings up to $1,008,739. McEwen has won eight poker tournaments, and this was his fourth WSOP Circuit ring.

The final match came down to McEwen and Carl Masters. McEwen held more than a 2-1 chip advantage, and the first time the final two players got all in was the last hand of the tournament. McEwen held K-J, and he had the K-6 of Masters dominated. The board changed nothing, and the Clarksville, Tennessee resident Masters was awarded $113,504 for his runner-up finish in the tournament.

“You know, I just woke up today feeling like I was going to win. I knew I was sitting fourth in chips out of five players, but I knew I still had 37 big blind and I was just locked in,” said McEwen to the WSOP Circuit reporters after his win.

He continued, “Even though I woke up feeling that it was my day, I’m just super grateful it came to fruition and thankful for the supporting cast I have around me because without my wife, kids, or friends, this wouldn’t be possible.”

A few other notables that cashed in the event included Hunter Cichy (18th), Andre Ostapchenko (32nd), Maxwell Young (59th), Corey Wade (68th), and Laura Born (84th).

Here is a look at the payouts awarded at the final table:
