Kevin Sherrill Wins 2015/16 WSOP Circuit Harrah’s Cherokee $365 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max

Kevin Sherrill from Conover, North Carolina captured another gold ring only a few hours ago after he topped the field of the 2015/16 WSOP Circuit Harrah’s Cherokee $365 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max. Apart from the shiny piece, the player also received the amount of $29,739 in prize money.

Sherrill has one previous WSOP Circuit victory. The player collected his first gold ring for winning a $365 No-Limit Hold’em event at Harrah’s Cherokee again back in 2014. He also scooped $52,295 for his triumph.

The $365 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max was a two-day tournament that saw a total of 431 players enter it. They created a prize pool of $129,300, but only the top 48 finishers received a portion of the money. Lowest cash was worth $491.

Day 1 of the event was completed with 10 survivors who returned on the very next day to play until the name of the champion became known. On Day 2, four players were eliminated within the first four levels of play. The six-handed final table was set with Sherrill himself holding more chips than any other of his remaining opponents. The player had a total of 1,320,000 in chips and was the only to be over the one million mark.

Shortly after six-handed play began, there were two players to be sent to the rail in a quick succession. A few hours later, two more were eliminated and it became clear that Sherrill and Michael Sewell would face each other heads-up. Similarly to Sherrill, Sewell has also previously won a gold ring at Harrah’s Cherokee. Although he was really close to winning his second-ever piece, the player from Shelby, North Carolina had to settle for the runner-up finish last night and the amount of $18,492.

Michael Mestey from Lawrenceville, Georgia took 3rd place for $13,085. Richard Brannon from Pittsboro, North Carolina finished 4th to collect the amount of $9,264. Dustin Goldklang from Asheville, North Carolina scooped a payout of $6,655 for taking 5th place in the tournament. Rounding out the official final table of six, Thomas Windham from Hartsville, South Carolina took home $4,827 for his deep run in the event.

As many as six gold rings have already found their owners at Harrah’s Cherokee and there are six more up for grabs. The North Carolina-based casino will play host to the WSOP Circuit up to April 26 and is, in fact, the penultimate stop on the 2015/16 schedule of the popular poker series.
