COMPLETE! WTP National Championships (11/9)

November 9, 2016

 

 

UPDATE (11/9, 4pm PST): It's all over! We have a new WTP National Champion, and his name is John Owens!

 

John engaged in a great final table that saw him slowly but surely establish his dominance, accumulating chips to take roughly half of the chips in play by the time 6 players remained. After brilliantly checking a flopped flush to induce an all-in from John Holt, eliminating him 4th, Owens had nearly all of the chips.

 

It only too one hand to get from 3 to 2 players, and then another final hand to determine the champion.

 

Josh Bardwell and Steve Alexander, both also from NC, finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. Heck of a job by all who made the Top 16!

 

Here are the final results:

 

1 JOHN OWENS, NC
2 Josh Bardwell, NC
3 Steven Alexander, NC
4 John Holt, VA
5 Jim Hilton, NC
6 Aziz Koc, NC
7 Neil Brimat, NJ
8 Tammy Faucher, AK
9 Kenneth Merck, NC
10 David Larson, NC
11 Jim Hilliker, PA
12 Frank Murray, NC
13 Karen Rutherford, PA
14 Alex Clauss, NJ
15 Wanda Walters, MD
16 Justin Miller, NY

 

UPDATE: We are under way in Day 2 of the National Championships! 48 players are competing for $25,000 in cash along with the title of WTP National Champion. Stay tuned for updates throughout the day!

 

Original: World Tavern Poker's ultimate league event, the National Championships has reached the end of Day 1 with 48 players remaining! All chips have been bagged and tagged, and the remaining players will start again in the POKER ROOM at 11am on Wednesday to play to a Champion.

 

When play resumes, blinds will be 10k/20k and will run 30 minutes each. There are approximately 5.4 million chips in play, and the average stack is about 112,500 (5.5 big blinds).
