Nashville poker player wins Horseshoe Tunica Main Event

The first of two World Series of Poker Circuit stops at Horseshoe Casino & Hotel - Tunica for the 2019/2020 season came to an end on Monday evening after 12 days of poker action. All in all, a total of 4,613 entry slips were sold for the 13 official WSOP ring events combined, creating a total prize pool of $2,108,765.

Christopher Nunnally, a 43-year old maintenance man, claimed the title of the first event of the series. He topped a field of 339 entries in Event #1: $400 No-Limit Hold’em Double Stack, scoring his first Circuit ring and $23,984, his biggest cash to date.

The next three titles were claimed by repeat winners, including some of the most recognized Circuit champions.

First, Blake Whittington took down Event #2: $400 No-Limit Hold’em (1 Day), adding a sixth Circuit ring to his collection and $19,786 to his WSOP earnings. The 28-year old poker professional had clenched two of his Circuit rings at the previous Horseshoe Tunica Circuit stop of the 2018/2019 season in May and found success again this series.

Next up was Michael Lech. Just a couple of months after winning his seventh Circuit ring in his fifth different country at the WSOP Circuit stop in Monterrey, Mexico, Lech managed to shine again, claiming another Circuit title. He took down the first multi-flight Event of the series, Event #3: $400 No-Limit Hold’em (3 Flights) after navigating through a field of 1,005 players, collecting his eighth Circuit ring and earning the top prize of $53,320. The 29-year old now has over $960,000 in WSOP cashes.

Just a few hours after Lech’s victory, Aaron Gamino, an economics professor, also added a second gold ring to his collection after defeating 207 competitors in Event #4: $400 No-Limit Hold’em (1 Day) for $16,194
