On Sunday, April 25, the $525 buy-in $300K GTD Main Event took place with 397 players rebuying 195 times to create a 592-entry field. The top 80 finishers for a piece of the $300,000 prize pool including

After 10 hours and 35 minutes of play, it was New Jersey’s Ryan “WHOSYOURDODD” Dodd besting Fadi “fadiphatu1” Elsmaily emerging victorious to claim a $51,300 top prize and his first WSOPC gold ring.

“It feels great to win my first ring, even better that it was in a Main Event,” Dodd told PokerNews. “We have a group that has been studying a lot over the last few months and this is just piggybacking on their successes, so it was nice to finally join the party.”

He continued: “One hand really sticks out. I was a short-to-average stack for a while at the final two tables, I got down to around 10 blinds and I was under the fun with aces and I snap-min-opened. The player who had all the chips and was opening every hand min-three-bet me, which I believe was due to him not seeing my open. So when I jammed he was so committed he had to call off with the {3-}{2-} suited and I luckily doubled and didn’t look back from there.”

Among those to cash the tournament but fall short of the final table were Wendy “Cardthartic” Freedman (10th - $4,050), Michael “SammyTwizz” Azzaro (12th - $4,050), Jeremy “nothinpersnl” Kottler (22nd - $1,890), Christopher “pokeher2014” Fuchs (33rd - $1,680), and Ross “BlueTang” Gottlieb (54th - $1,170).
