Double Stacked Today At Hard Rock Tulsa - Day 8

24 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 won Event #5 $400 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack for $24,578 and his first WSOP gold circuit ring. Jennings defeated 350 entrants, including a stacked final table with several familiar faces. Jennings ultimately defeated Bradley Owens heads up - Owens entered the final table with the chip lead. 
Jennings started heads up at a chip deficit, but after a huge double with a set of threes, he was finally able to earn one of the few accomplishments that has eluded him in his poker career.
"This is my twelfth circuit final table. I haven't really been that motivated to play poker over the past three years, but Tulsa is close to home and I thought I'd come play a full series to take a shot at finally winning a circuit ring," Jennings said.
With 30 cashes and over $200,000 in circuit winnings, Jennings now has the cherry on top of a great WSOP circuit resume. 
Later Tuesday and reaching into Wednesday morning, Shawn Sparks took down Event #6 for his third WSOP circuit ring. 
Shawn Sparks is the winner of Event #6 $250 No-Limit Hold'em. He bested a field of 193 players to claim his third WSOP circuit ring and a spot in the Tournament of Champions. Sparks entered the final table with the chip lead and, after a long heads up battle with William Lahti, Sparks held to win the $9,402 first prize.
"I have two hobbies," Sparks said, "I play poker and I fly airplanes."
Sparks and his wife of almost ten years, Lisa, are both poker players and Sparks says he's thankful that his wife understands and supports his poker hobby. Sparks has three grandkids he says call him Grumps and he carries a "Let's Go Grumps" coin in his pocket while he plays.
With over $100,000 in WSOP cashes, Sparks seems to be having some success in one of his favorite hobbies. But has no desire for poker to be anything more than a hobby.
"I have a great job. I suck at golf, so I play poker. I never want to do this professionally," said Sparks.
