Jim Anderson Wins WSOP-C Regional Championship

Jim Anderson, a poker player from Ohio, has just got his biggest break yet by winning the first WSOP-C Regional Championship for the 2010-2011 season. He managed to earn a total of $525,449 as well as a shiny new title and a spiffy championship ring.

A Quantum Leap

Before this tournament, Jim Anderson’s career was unremarkable except for a cash in the WSOP Main Event. With this tournament, however, he went from Zero to Hero in a matter of days, fattening his bank account with more than half a million bucks and adding a prestigious title to his name. The road wasn’t easy for Jim Anderson, however, as he faced quite a number of pros on the way to the top. The final table, for one, was particularly star studded. In fact, Anderson was one of those who had a short stack at the beginning of the play, but he managed to overcome this obstacle and win.

The Final Table

So how did Anderson go about securing his victory? The answer would best be found in how the final table played out. Railbirds did not have to wait long for the final table to have its first elimination as Mark Owens became the first one to go. Following him was Tony Hartman who was short-stacked. Brandon Adams, being in a similar state to Hartman, was the next one to go. With three down, only six were left, and the field was quickly reduced to five when Shannon Shorr was eliminated, courtesy of Patgorski. Sands was the next one to go, bumped off by Kohlberg. However, despite a good performance, Kohlberg was the next to hit the rail. Anderson was the one who eliminated Kohlberg, and this was the real turning point of his game.

With Kohlberg’s chips, Anderson held well over 2 million chips, now enough to go head to head with Patgorski, who was a consistent chip leader throughout the day.  Anderson went on to chip away at Patgorski’s stack, managing to seriously damage it in a pivotal hand. Even when Patgorski managed to bump Bernard Lee off, Anderson still had the advantage, a nifty 5:2 advantage. Sure enough, the final hand came quickly, with Anderson’s AA beating Patgorski’s AJ. Pargorski still managed to earn a total of $324,770 for his second place finish, and Jim Anderson, as mentioned, got $525,449. This could be the start of a wonderful career for Anderson, who now has enough money to play at the high stakes games.
