WSOP Super Circuit Series Ends with Matt Stout as Champ

WSOP Super Circuit Series Ends with Matt Stout as Champ

It was one of the most hastily-organized online poker tournament series in recent memory. And it was a resounding success.

The first-ever Super Circuit Series was set up one day after the World Series of Poker cancelled many of its WSOP Circuit events, both in the US and on the international side. As the coronavirus spread across Europe, Asia, and North America, casinos closed. Governments forbade large gatherings of people. And stay-at-home orders began around the world.

The World Series of Poker jumped into action and quickly set up an 18-event online series for players located in Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware. It wasn’t a fix for the majority of poker players, but it was something for players in a few states right away.

It was a success from the start.

The results from the first 10 events showed most tournaments surpassing their prize pool guarantees by two or three times. Now let’s see how it finished up.

Matt Stout Wins Series Leaderboard

The WSOP Online Super Circuit Series was no different than any other stop on the WSOP Circuit, at least as far as its leaderboard. The Casino Champion of each stop wins the title for accumulating the most points in that particular series and wins a seat into the 2019/2020 Global Casino Championship. That tournament is set for August 11-13 at Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina.

Matt Stout is the player who won the seat from this series, having captured two gold rings, made three final tables, and accumulated six cashes.

The final tally of the leaderboard is as follows:

–1. Matt Stout (140 points)

–2. Jonathan Dokler (127.5 points)

–3. James Carroll (100 points)

–4. Brian Altman (92.5 points)

–5. Brian Sherrier (87.5 points)

–8. Anthony Zinno (77.5 points)

–9. Andrew Dean (75 points)

–10. Sang Lee (72.5 points)

–11. Thomas Maguire (72.5 points)

At the end of the season, the top 50 on the overall season’s leaderboard will also receive seats into the Global Casino Championship, if they didn’t already have a seat.

There will be a $1 million minimum prize pool for all qualifying players.
