Baker's Dozen: Ari Engel Wins 13th Circuit Ring; Tied For 3rd on All-Time List

Ari Engel

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) all-time Circuit ring list once again needs adjusting as veteran Circuit grinder Ari Engel won his 13th ring to tie Daniel Lowery in the third-place slot.

Engel earned the 13th career ring with a victory in the $215 buy-in Event #12 - $20,000 NLH 6-Max that took place as part of the WSOP Michigan Circuit Super Series. The online event drew 162 entries and saw Engel defeating "Meekmills", believed to be accomplish player Millard Hale, during heads-up play for $8,926, while the runner-up received $5,832.

It's been difficult to keep track of the changes to the all-time Circuit ring list in recent months.

In April, Wisconsin crusher Josh Reichard won his 14th Circuit ring to tie Maurice Hawkins at the top of this. The next month, Hawkins, who recently ran deep in the 2023 WSOP Main Event, won a 15th ring to re-take the lead.

Meanwhile, Lowery picked up three rings in four months to leap-frog Engel and move to third, trailing only Hawkins and Reichard. Engel now ties with Lowery in the race to the top of the all-time Circuit ring list that hasn't shown any signs of slowing down.
