WSOPC Main Event at Horseshoe Hammond won by Retired Dentist Elik Vodovoz for $294K from $220 Satellite Seat

Tags: Elik Vodovoz, WSOPC.
Posted on 06 March 2019 by "K".

A retired dentist bested the young ones at the WSOP Circuit Main Event this week, outlasting a field of 1,050 players to win his very first WSOP gold circuit ring and the cash prize worth $294,290, and the best thing about it – he got in via a $220 satellite seat!

The 72-year-old from Ukraine also gets a free seat to the 2019 Global Casino Championship scheduled in August at Harrah’s Cherokee.

So far this is his best live cash to date, since he usually plays in local events with smaller buy-ins. This tournament was still within his means as he practically earned his seat into the main event through a lucky $220 satellite.

He said, “Frankly, I really like playing poker. I just have fun playing. My son is also playing and he told me ‘you’re playing well. Take your time and in the future, you will win something.’ Well, the future came early.” He says the money will really help his family out.

Absolutely gigantic congratulations must go out to Elik Vodovoz, who topped a field of 1,050 entrants to win the WSOP Circuit Main Event. He successfully converted his little $220 investment into over a quarter million dollars. That's incredible!

yes I personally think because he invest smaller amount of money when most players in buyin pay in all amount this means that he get very big return on investment form his first place performance. big congratulation to retired dentist, to me it is good to see old guys know how to win too

It is always nice to see an amateur player doing so well and well done to him on winning this event. To win nearly $300,000 dollars from a $220 outlay is quite some achievement and i hope he continues playing and winning in the future

This proves that he is also a very good poker player. We all know that doctors are very smart people but in some areas they do not have such good abilities. In this case he mastered very well and managed to win this tournament. He deserves to be congratulated by the poker fans. Smile

This is the USA. I think he made plenty times more as a dentist. That is basically a goldmine profession in America next to the plastic/cosmetic surgeons.

This is one of the success stories we hear about from time to time.
From a satellite ticket he managed to win a wsopc main event.
An the amount he won, you cant say among the high payouts, but for the money
he put in it is a fortune Smile If you are lucky...
