Daniel Lowery Wins Thirteenth World Series of Poker Circuit Gold Ring

The Arkansas Native Now Sits One WSOPC Title Behind All-Time Leaders Maurice Hawkins and Josh Reichard


Daniel Lowery is now just one World Series of Poker Circuit victory away from entering a three-way tie with Maurice Hawkins and Josh Reichard for the tour’s all-time titles record. Lowery won his 13th WSOPC gold ring on April 20, 2023, taking down the kickoff $400 buy-in event at the WSOPC Horseshoe Tunica series for $16,739 and the hardware.

This was Lowery’s third WSOPC ring earned this year. He started out by taking down the $500 buy-in ‘Gargantuan’ event at WSOPC Choctaw for $102,511 just a few days into 2023. A few months later he took down a $300 buy-in no-limit hold’em turbo event at the WSOP International Circuit Casino Royale festival in St. Maarten for $8,500.

The father of four from Arkansas now has nearly $2.3 million in recorded tournament earnings to his name, with more than $1.4 million of that coming from the 123 cashes he’s made in WSOPC events.

Josh Reichard only joined Maurice Hawkins at the top of the WSOPC rings leaderboard a few days before Lowery’s victory, taking down the WSOPC Grand Victoria Casino main event for $253,073. Prior to that win, Hawkins had sat alone at the top with his 14 rings for over three years.

Thanks to Lowery’s strong start to the year, he now sits inside the top 90 in the 2023 Card Player Player of the Year race, with his three titles, six final-table finishes, and more than $228,000 in to-date POY earnings.

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