Reslock earns $335,000 for victory


The WSOP Circuit Main Event at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., finished up on Dec. 10, where Chris Reslock won the title, besting John Juanda heads-up. For the win, Reslock earned $335,235, a gold and diamond ring, and an entry into the 2006 WSOP Tournament of Champions.

Reslock was both the Day 1 and Day 2 chip leader and although he's not a household name, he's been on the poker circuit for years. Although cashing in at numerous stud and Omaha events over the past five years have been his previous highlights, winning a televised final table solidifies his resume. Reslock dominated the final table and knocked out six of the players en route to his victory.

After a 7½-hour heads-up battle, Juanda took second place and earned $186,240. Nick Schulman, the youngest-ever WPT winner coming fresh off his victory at Foxwoods, continued his strong run by finishing fourth and earning $74,495.
