Less than a month after winning his 13th World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) ring, Ari Engel won a 14th ring at WSOPC Graton to tie Josh Reichard in second place on the all-time Circuit ring list.
Engel’s latest ring was earned in Event #10: $400 H.O.R.S.E. for $6,647 at the northern California stop. Engel wrote on social media that it was a small field of 60 entries and “I was 2 of them.”
Just weeks ago, Engel won a 13th ring in an online event as part of the WSOP Michigan Circuit Super Series to tie Daniel Lowery (who posed Engel’s latest winner’s photo) in third on the all-time list. With his latest victory, Engel now sits only behind Maurice Hawkins (15 rings) on the all-time ring list and tied with Reichard, who won his 14th ring in April by taking down the WSOPC Grand Victoria Main Event for $253,073.
Reichard was momentarily tied with Hawkins before the all-time ring leader won a 15th ring in May in a WSOPC Cherokee high roller.
Engel is also a two time WSOP bracelet winner who took down 2019’s Event #48: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em for $427,399 and 2021’s Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship for $317,076.
The WSOPC Gration stop kicked off on Aug. 10 and runs through Aug. 21 with several events left on the schedule, including the $1,700 buy-in Main Event kicking off on Aug. 18.
