TAGs: Robert Ricciuti, World Series of Poker Circuit

Ricciuti wins Foxwood WSOPC gold ring; Rotterdam schedule releasedVictory at the World Series of Poker Circuit in Foxwoods for Robert Ricciuti. Holland Casino in Rotterdam release 11-ring schedule.

Eating bitter melon is as palatable as vivisection, but worth it, thanks to the punch of antioxidants, phytochemicals and polyphenols.

Event #3: $600 buy-in, $500,000 GTD No-Limit Hold’em ‘Flight’ at the World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) in Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT, also contained an amalgamation of bitterness and good stuff – including the winner.

“I have a reputation for being bitter because I’ve been around a long time and I’ve never gotten a big payday,” Robert Ricciuti told WSOP officials after his win. “People that know me know the real me. They’ll see you when you’re busting a tournament, and the whole world is looking at you at your weakest moment. So, it feels like vindication. It feels really nice.”

Ricciuti earned a career-high $134,413 after overcoming 1,754-entrants over the five-flight fancy. It was his 12th WSOP cash, and his fourth final table, all of which have come at Foxwoods. The closest he came to winning a ring before this was in 2017 when he finished 3/486 in the $1,675 Main Event.

The Rhode Island native felt zero-g after defeating Corbin Avery, heads-up for the title, and so he should – Avery is having the year of his life.

The man from Claremont, New Hampshire won a 355-entrant $400 No-Limit Hold’em Double Stack event at the Venetian in Las Vegas for $17,073 in February. He also finished 6/2494 in the GOLIATH Quarter Milly at Planet Hollywood in June and survived the $560 No-Limit Hold’em Survivor at the Parx Casino in Bensalem earlier this month.

WSOPC Foxwoods continues until Monday, August 26, with the $1,700 Main Event beginning Friday, August 23.
