Brandon Guillory Wins 2015/16 WSOP Circuit Harrah’s New Orleans $365 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max

BrandonGuillory185Brandon Guillory, an attorney from Opelousas, Louisiana, collected last night his first WSOP Circuit gold ring for winning the 2015/16 WSOP Circuit Harrah’s New Orleans $365 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max or Event #6 on the schedule of this season’s last stop. Apart from the shiny gold piece, the player was also paid $20,830.

Guillory owns a law firm in Opelousas and is dedicated to his law career. He told interviewers that he plays poker occasionally and now that he is a gold ring holder, he would not change the amount of poker he is going to play.

The $365 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max took two days of play for an eventual winner to be determined. The tournament kicked off on May 16, attracting 262 entries. The entire prize pool amounted to $78,600 and a share of the money was paid to the top 27 places.

The event’s final day was played on Tuesday with ten finalists returning to battle for the gold ring and the biggest portion of the prize money. Cards were thrown in the air with Quang Hua leading the ten survivors with a total of 474,000 in chips, good for 39 big blinds. Former November Niner John Dolan was second in chips with 417,000. Guillory was fourth in chips at that time.

The official six-handed final table was reached shortly after. Eventually, Guillory faced Dolan heads-up. When asked about what was like to play against a player with such a resume, Guillory admitted that Dolan was, indeed, an accomplished player but he did not let his former achievements get to him.

Play between the two remaining finalists lasted for two levels, during which there were some really electric hands to occur. On the very last hand for the match and the tournament as a whole, Guillory checked from the button and Dolan also checked in the big blind. The [8s][4h][2d] appeared on the flop. Dolan then bet 75,000 to see his opponent move all in. Dolan called and tabled [8c][6c] against Guillory’s [Jh][Jd]. The [4c] came on the turn and the [9d] ran out on the river, but were of no help to Dolan. The former November Niner eventually took $12,881 for his 2nd place in the 6-Max event.

WSOP Circuit regular Neil Scott from Mammoth Lakes, California took 3rd place in the event for $8,954. One-time gold ring winner Bernard Lee from Wayland, Massachusetts finished 4th to scoop a $6,293 portion of the entire prize pool. Local player Fred Jones received $4,468 for taking 5th place in the event. Start-of-the-day chip leader Quang Hoa finished 6th for $6,293.
