Lian Liu outlasts 227 entrants to claim his first WSOP Circuit title
Lian Liu won his debut WSOP Circuit gold ring after surviving the field of the $400 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo event at Harveys Lake Tahoe Casino. Aside from the jewelry piece, the poker pro also took home $18,733 for his efforts.
The tournament was played as Event #7 on the schedule of the ongoing WSOP Circuit Harveys Lake Tahoe series. The event drew 227 entrants, but due to the Turbo structure, the overall field was reduced to a single player who captured the title over a single day of action.
As mentioned earlier, the victory in the Turbo event secured the young poker pro, who was born in China but now resides in California, with his first piece of WSOP Circuit paraphernalia. However, it should be noted that Liu is no stranger to WSOP Circuit action. In fact, the player had six cashes from the series prior to his triumph a few days ago, and he scored them all at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe. It should also be noted that Liu’s first-place prize of $18,733 more than doubled his WSOP Circuit winnings.
But the brand-new champion was not the only player to walk out with a cash from the tournament. The event drew 227 entries who created a prize pool of $74,910. The top 24 finishers received a share of the money. Min-cashes were worth $691.
Stacked Final Table
Liu entered a stacked final table that included seasoned poker pros and familiar WSOP Circuit faces. Two-time gold ring winner Bernard Lee was among the players to comprise the tournament’s final table. Lee, who has more than $1.1 million in WSOP Circuit and WSOP earnings, collected his second-ever gold ring from the series only a few days ago. The poker pro took down the single-day $400 No-Limit Hold’em at Harveys Lake Tahoe for the gold piece and the $11,465 first-place prize. Lee could not add another ring to his collection with a victory in the Turbo event as he busted in 7th place.
Hank Sitton, a player with 47 WSOP cashes, did too make it to the final table of the Turbo tournament. He eventually finished 5th for $4,680. Andrew Jenkins happened to challenge Liu heads-up. However, the title was not meant for the player from Monterey, California and he eventually had to content himself with the runner-up finish and a consolation prize of $11,575.
There are five more gold rings up for grabs at Harveys Lake Tahoe, including the one reserved for the Main Event champion. The $1,700 buy-in tournament is set to take place from November 2 through November 5 at the host casino.
