Jarod Minghini Wins First-Career WSOP Circuit Gold Ring at Thunder Valley

World Series of Poker Circuit is the headline-grabber in the poker world. Last year, WSOP officials released the 2017/18 Circuit schedule and gold hunters from all around America are currently following the circuit around in an attempt to lock up the win and celebrate with a trophy in their hands.

With all the buzz around WSOP Circuit, Casino Reports could not help it, but provide its readers with the latest updates. Currently, Thunder Valley Casino Resort is sizzling with poker action as it kindly plays host to WSOP Circuit.

WSOP Circuit Thunder Valley commenced on 11th January to offer a 12-day long poker adventure and 12 gold rings up for grabs. There were many amazing performances last week and many gold rings were awarded thus far. Event #9: $365 Pot-Limit Omaha kicked off yesterday at 4 pm local time to determine the owner of the next piece of jewelry. With a total of 102 entries, the players created a prize pool of $30,600. Of this huge sum, an impressive $9,180 was awaiting the winner, while the rest of the prize money was distributed among the other top 11 players.

Jarod Minghini Sits Behind a Mountain of Cash

Jarod Minghini was the player to win the title and add a first poker trophy to his collection. By the time the field was narrowed to just 10 players, Eduardo Gonzalez was the chip leader, while Kevin O’Donnell and Jake Rosenstiel hovering near the top of the chip counts. At that time, the eventual winner was middling, holding an average stack of chips.

The poker arena welcomed several poker notables, including WSOP $10K H.O.R.S.E. champion Andrew Barber, Kevin O’Donnell, Kenneth Po and commentator Jake Rosenstiel. They were trying to chase gold rings at Thunder Valley Casino Resort, but Jarod Minghini successfully accomplished that mission. Andrew Barber was busted in 10th place and the rest of the players gathered around the final table to determine the name of the winner.

Slowly, but surely, the number of the players was melting to leave only 2 survivors. Jarod Minghini and Charles Rosenblatt had the opportunity to play face to face in a heads-up battle. After an exhaustive heads-up battle, Minghini managed to gain the upper hand over his opponent and claim the throne. That was a very pivotal moment in Minghini’s career as he not only snared first gold ring, but he also notched the biggest cash of his career. Rosenblatt had to settle for second fiddle and a cheque for $5,674.
