Dunst, Eriquezzo & Rocha Among WSOP Super Circuit Series Gold Ring Winners

Tony Dunst, Ryan Eriquezzo & Alex Rocha

While all eyes were on the World Series of Poker (WSOP) $10,000 Main Event on WSOP.com this past weekend, the site also concluded its Super Circuit Series, which guaranteed over $1 million in 18 ring events over 18 days (November 27-December 14).

All told, the series catered to 10,051 entrants and awarded $3,587,153 in prize money over its 18 gold ring events.

The series crowned several high-profile winners including WPT commentator Tony “Panoramic” Dunst, who topped a 509-entry field to win Event #12: $100,000 GTD NLH Big $500 for $44,165.21 and his first gold ring. The piece of jewelry compliments the online bracelet Dunst won over the summer when he took down WSOP.com Event #21: $777 NLH 6-Handed for $168,342. It marked the second bracelet of his career.

Speaking of two-time bracelet winners, Ryan “GoFeltaFish” Eriquezzo, who has won the Global Casino Championship twice, also captured a ring during the series. His victory came after he navigated a 262-entry field to win the $1,000 buy-in Event #5: $100,000 High Roller for $50,992.79 and the fifth gold ring of his career.

Alex “rip_neiko” Rocha was another winner after besting a 415-player field to win Event #11: $50,000 NLHE Freezeout for $23,690.27 and his third gold ring, and first since 2016.

The series culminated with the $525 buy-in, $200K GTD Main Event, a tournament that drew 578 players who rebought 353 times. The 931-entry field more than doubled the guarantee by creating a $465,500 prize pool, and coming out on top was Tyler “muchultra” Cornell, who won it for $70,243.95 and his first ring.

While the WSOP Main Event was busy establishing its final table of nine, the Circuit wrapped with the $1,000 buy-in Event #18: $100,000 NLH Grand Finale High Roller, which drew 378 runners and offered up a $360,990 prize pool. Eli “Sketchem” Mirlis prevailed to win the tournament for $69,310.08 and his first gold ring.
