Brian Altman, Bin Weng, and the founder of MSPT are among most recent ring winners on WSOP Circuit

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit has been busy. We recently provided a recap of some online winners from Nevada, New Jersey, and Michigan, as well as a few live stops. The WSOP Circuit recently concluded at Horseshoe Las Vegas and Harrah’s Cherokee, and Horseshoe Hammond in the Chicago land area is hosting another stop.

A look at some of the stories from the most recent WSOP Circuit stops, as well as complete lists of winners from the two most recent stops, can be found here.

Winners of the WSOPC Horseshoe Las Vegas Event The Horseshoe Las Vegas event, which replaced Bally’s as the first WSOP Circuit stop, was held outside the Hall of Fame Poker Room and featured brand-new poker chips and felt. 18 gold rings were given out over the course of two weeks, and Todd Carlson became the first person to win a gold ring at the new location.

Bin Weng and Alex Foxen Compete in the WSOPC Horseshoe

The $1,261,995 prize pool in the WSOPC Horseshoe Las Vegas $1,700 Main Event attracted 833 entries. Ryan Laplante (10th place, $17,681), Chino Rheem (14th place, $14,329), and Daniel Jones (24th place, $8,165) were just a few of the Las Vegas crushers in the field.

Essentially, there were a ton of natural names at the last table including Canister Weng and Alex Foxen, who really got down to business in heads-up play. Weng eventually stopped Foxen, a high-roller kingpin, and won the tournament for $227,344 and his first gold ring.

Wend, who recently won the Borgata Return Championship for a smooth $1 million, stated, “This tournament meant a lot to me.” I’ve won four or five titles, but I’ve never participated in a WSOP tournament. I am speechless right now because I am so excited; getting a ring means a lot to me.

He added: “My hero in poker is Alex Foxen. We both hail from Long Island, the same region. I am so grateful to have taken this down and the opportunity to play with Foxen. He is currently one of the best players.

Brian Altman, a seasoned poker player, was the last person standing in the Luxon Pay tournament. In addition to winning the tournament’s top prize of $391,753, Altman also won his fourth circuit ring. This is in harmony with the 2022 WSOP Online Bracelet that he won in Event #3: $110,662 for a $400 NLH Ultra Deep stack

According to the Hendon Mob, Altman now has more than $7 million in career tournament earnings. Although Altman has a strong poker resume, he is perhaps best known for winning three World Poker Tour (WPT) titles in Florida.
