2010 WSOP-C Lake Tahoe - Stan Quinn Wins Main Event
The 2010 WSOP Circuit Main Event stop at Harvey's Lake Tahoe just wrapped up on Tuesday with one person earning his seat into the season-ending National Championship event.
2010 WSOP-C Lake Tahoe winner Stan Quinn
Play started on Sunday with 246 players putting up $1,500 in the hopes of winning the top prize of $86,789.
The final table of this event did not have any real headliners. Michael Traylor started as a massive chip leader with nearly a 2 to 1 lead over the rest of the field. Here is how the final table started play:
Seat 1: Dan Black (585,000)
Seat 2: Donna Jetter (111,000)
Seat 3: John McNeilly (263,000)
Seat 4: Joe "13" Mongkol-ua-aree (287,000)
Seat 5: Michael Traylor (1,843,000)
Seat 6: Drew Caseri (164,000)
Seat 7: Grant Hillman (484,000)
Seat 8: Ned Mantua (945,000)
Seat 9: Stanley Quinn (377,000)
In the end, Traylor would falter and finish in 3rd place. Heads-up play for the ring was between John McNeilly and Stan Quinn. Heading into heads-up play, Quinn led McNeilly with 2.715 Million in chips to 2.2 Million. McNeilly pulled just about even with Quinn when a monster pot went down to determine the title. Quinn raised to 150,000 pre-flop and was called. The flop fell 8s-3s-6c and McNeilly checked to Quinn, who bet out 200,000. McNeilly then moved all-in and received a quick call from Quinn. Quinn just barely had McNeilly covered. The cards went on their backs to show McNeilly with 8c-7c for top pair and Quinn with pocket jacks. The turn fell the 5d to give McNeilly a wrap straight draw. The river then fell the Ks and Quinn was the champion.
Stan Quinn is the Lake Tahoe Circuit Event Champion. In addition to the 86,789 in prize money, he received both the gold championship ring and an automatic entry into the WSOP Circuit National Championship. The National Championship will be a 100 player freeroll that pays the final table and awards a gold bracelet to the winner just prior to the 2011 WSOP.
