Corkins Takes WPT Southern Poker Classic Event

Published Tuesday, February 02, 2010 -

The Doyles Room sponsored player Hoyt Corkins, has upset a few poker players in a takedown of the WPT, Southern Poker Classic event. Corkin an easy going Alabama native stood up to the onslaught of 208 players to become the latest WPT winner and take in over $700,000 in the process. He is a veteran of the WPT circuit playing now for a number of years and this recent win makes his total earnings over $3 million. Doylesroom professionals have been doing well and with this win are now really showing what they are made of. Corkin now moves into contention for the WPT player of the year award which would bring the Brunson team some added fame and fortune. Another of the team’s most successful online poker players, Chris “Moorman1” Moorman, has had a great start to his year without doing too much as one of his co-players Tyler Reiman, finished second in the PCA for $1.7 million, of which he was entitled to a hefty percentage. Poker’s hottest team is always on the lookout for talent and it looks like they have a strong team already.

Betfair's team is looking strong too with Annette “Annette15” Obrestad taking down one event at the Aussie Millions, putting her into the chip lead race for the final table at the main event. Doyles room should have snapped up the young lady and her talent earlier because now she is old enough to play anywhere in the world she will surely cause them some distress. The Norwegian youngster is going to show us all a thing or two about poker in the next little while as she is already putting things in a different light for some players. Stakes are getting bigger every day and the games just keep on getting more exciting to watch and play. Watching the young players strut their stuff, is interesting as it compares to the old school tactics presented by some seasoned professionals.
