Steven Sarmiento Wins First Major Title

poker

The $1700 entry Main Event at the WSOP Circuit Coconut Creed has produced a winner. That person was New York Player Steven Sarmiento who won his first WSOP Circuit Ring as well as $188 158. He also gains a ticket to the 2020 Global Casino Championship.

Sarmiento beat more than 617 players. He scooped his first ever major title by winning the event.

Sarmiento doubled up by achieving ace-king and hit top pair after achieving a great call against buffs from the overnight leader Nick Yunis. He got good luck by making them pay when he would get a full house chip lead which he held for almost the entirety of the tournament.

He still held the chip lead even when play reached the final table and when he was four-handed. Yunis did manage to recover from his setback and sought revenge. Sarmiento had trip nines and his eight kicker caused damage to Yunis.

Sarmiento dominated Russell Sullivan when Sullivan was in with ace-queen against his ace-king.

Corcoran gave Sarmiento a battle but he managed to battle back and edge into a lead. In the final hand, Sarmiento’s ace-eight dominated Corcoran’s ten-eight of diamonds and all money went to the eight-high flop.

Sarmiento went on to take his first ever major title with Corcoran taking home a big sum as well as finishing as runner-up.
