WSOPC Tulsa: Mark Barrientos Wins Main Event ($126,900); Two Rings For Hamid Izadi

Another World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) stop has wrapped up with the completion of WSOPC Tulsa, which ran from Aug. 16-27 and consisted of more than a dozen Circuit ring events.

The Circuit stop in Oklahoma culminated with the $1,700 buy-in WSOPC Tulsa Main Event, which drew 397 entrants for a total prize pool of $601,455. The biggest share of that went to Kansas native Mark Barrientos, who won the event for his second Circuit ring and $126,900.

Barrientos, who won his first ring in a $250 buy-in WSOPC Tulsa event in 2019, defeated Oklahoma local Daxton Alexander, who was after his first Circuit ring but finished runner-up for $78,440 and his first WSOP cash.

There were a few well-known faces who made it deep in the WSOPC Tulsa Main Event, including poker commentator Kasey Mills (12th – $8,987) and Angela Jordison (8th – $14,091), who earlier this year was named Breakout Player at the 2022 Global Poker Awards.

Izadi Closes Out Stop With Fourth and Fifth Rings

There have been plenty of big stories coming from the WSOP Circuit as of late, including Ari Engel winning his 14th and 15th rings and Daniel Lowery winning a 14th ring to be right behind him.

Another notable storyline emerged at the latest stop with Georgia’s Hamid Izadi winning Event #11: $400 No-Limit Hold’em for $13,840 and his fourth Circuit ring before closing out the series with a victory in Event #13: $250 No-Limit Hold’em for $10,910.

Izadi, a Circuit grinder with $801,805 in WSOP earnings, won his first ring in 2017 at WSOPC Biloxi and later won two rings in 2019 at Seminole Coconut Creek and Horseshoe Hammond.
