John Thelen Wins #18, $300 No-Limit, After Final Four Players Make a Deal
Council Bluffs, IA--The 18th event of the WSOP Circuit at Horseshoe Council Bluffs ended in a four-way deal. It had become a one-day tournament, and with the time approaching 2:30 a.m., the remaining players decided to call it a night. Holding the most chips and declared the winner was John Thelen, a restaurant owner from Meridew, Kansas who is mostly a cash game player, but will once in a while try a tournament when it's held here. Last November he won a "Fat Stacked" tournament at Council Bluffs.
First place in this $300 no-limit event paid an official $7,752. Thelen, who is 44, has been playing poker 20 years.
Final table action began with blinds of 1,500-3,000 and 400 antes. With 80,000 chips, Joel Merwick had a very big lead.
Here were the starting chip counts:
