Stephen Song Wins Two WSOP Circuit Harrah's Cherokee Titles To Increase His Ring Total To Six

Connecticut Poker Pro Has Now Secured Three WSOPC Wins In A Three-Week Span


Stephen Song has doubled his World Series of Poker Circuit gold ring count over the past three weeks. He came into the middle of November with three WSOPC titles to his name. He then took down the WSOPC Grand Victoria main event before making his way to WSOPC Harrah’s Cherokee to add two more wins to his resume, bringing his total to six.

Song’s two latest wins saw him come out on top in a $1,100 buy-in no-limit hold’em event and the $2,200 buy-in no-limit hold’em high roller.

The poker pro based out of Greenwich, CT now has more than $6 million in recorded live tournament earnings thanks to the two victories which added more than $175,000 to his tally. Song is also a bracelet winner and was the last player standing in the inaugural WPT Prime Championship last December.

With his three WSOPC victories and a total of six final-table finishes on the live scene in 2023, Song has climbed into 72nd place in the 2023 Card Player Player of the Year race presented by Global Poker.

The first event saw Song outlast a field of 556 entries to secure the hardware and the top prize of $102,954. A total of 83 players made the money in that event, with other notables running deep including ring winner Cory Biddle (9th), four-time ring winner Brett Murray (8th), and ring winner James Casement (4th).

Just a few days later, Song bested 137 entries in the high roller, adding another $72,583 in earnings. The top 21 finishers cashed in that event, with World Poker Tour champion Matthew Wantman (15th) and bracelet winner Cherish Andrews (13th) among those who cashed.

Ring winner Brandon Zuidema (9th), bracelet winner Seth Fischer (8th), and ring winner Justin Donatio (6th) joined Song at the final table.
