MAIN EVENT DAY at Hard Rock Tulsa - Day 10

26 August 2022 (Tulsa, OK) -  The World Series of Poker Circuit returns to the Hard Rock Tulsa August 17th - August 28th. This is the third stop of the 2022 Circuit season. The stop includes 16 events and concludes with the $1,700 Main Event, Friday August 26th.

Greg Jennings returned at 1 PM today and defeated Mark Werre heads up for his second WSOP circuit ring in three days.

Jennings started the day by losing an all in to Mark Werre, but kept battling and eventually sent Werre to the rail in second place. He mentioned after his first ring win that he hadn't been that motivated to play poker for the past few years, but he wanted to come here and take a shot at winning a ring after 11 circuit final table appearances. Now in back-to-back events, Jennings says he may jump into Event #8 simply because of momentum. However, his feelings haven't changed too much.

"It's great, but it will not inspire me to play more poker."
Jennings has a few more events at least, and the Main Event this weekend, to go for his third ring, but regardless of how the rest of the trip turns out, it's mission accomplished for Jennings.


Jessica Vierling won Event #8: $400 No-Limit Hold'em and took home $13,641 along with her first WSOP circuit ring. She defeated 163 players and held a commanding chip lead with three players remaining. As Clayton Soliz was eliminated in third place, he wished Byron Abernathy luck. Abernathy was quite short, and the heads up match was over shortly after.
"Finally," Vierling said as the final card fell on the river.
She jumped out of her chair and walked over to shake Abernathy's hand.
The 36-year old poker pro says her main goal as a poker pro is to be consistent.
"I don't want to focus on the trophies. I wasn't even thinking about the money today," she said. 
Vierling wanted the ring more than anything in today's tournament.
"I was wondering if it was ever going to happen."
Well it happened when she got pocket fives all in against Abernathy's king-nine. She mentioned that pocket fives was the hand she lost to the last time she was heads up for a circuit ring. Now, a few years later, pocket fives brings her a WSOP circuit ring. Now she's focused on the Main before deciding where she will be off to next.
