Samuel Chartier Wins WSOP Circuit Caesars Event

The World Series of Poker Circuit made a stop in Atlantic City this past weekend to hold a tournament at Caesars. Two hundred and eight players participated in the $5,150 buy-in tournament and it was Samuel Chartier managed to outlast the field and take the $322,944 first place prize.

When final table play began, Chartier was one of the players with the shortest chip stack. But Chartier was able to fight and gain a good deal of chips to make it to heads up play with John Nixon. On the final hand Nixon’s Ace Ten was not enough to beat Samuel’s Ace Jack and he was out in second place.

In an interview after the tournament Chartier commented: “It’s amazing. I can’t describe the feeling I have right now. I knew the final table lineup was pretty tough so I hoped to pick up a few good spots to put my money in, and that’s what I managed to do.”

The prize pool was just over a million dollars so each player at the final table was able to earn a good chunk of change for their efforts. Not only did Chartier win the $300,000 plus first place prize but he also won a seat to the 2009 WSOP Main Event.
