Sudhakar Doijode Wins Six-Max Event at Caesars Palace

Event 6 yields two winners as runner-up Ryan Snyder shows display of class amid crushing defeat

WSOP Circuit Events at Caesars reach halfway point with Brent Hanks atop of Casino Champion Leaderboard

LAS VEGAS, NV – The World Series of Poker Circuit Events at Caesars Palace reached its halfway point late Wednesday with the conclusion of Event #6, the $365 No-Limit Hold’em Six Max Event.

The winner was Sudhakar “Sid” Doijode, a 49-year-old networking and IT executive from Antioch, CA. A former Motorola security solutions director, Doijode has headed marketing and operations initiatives for a number of major tech firms around Silicon Valley.

The win marked Doijode’s first major tournament cash, earning him an early year bonus worth $24,828 and the WSOP Circuit Gold Ring.

While pros have largely dominated this year’s series at Caesars Palace, Doijode’s smarts and instincts helped guide him to victory in Event #6.

“”It feels really good,” Doijode said of the win.

“This is a hobby for me and I had six days off, so I came here to play. I got a little lucky, I guess,”

Doijode was one of 331 players who each ponied up $365 for the Tuesday-start event, generating a total prize pool of $99,300. 16 players returned on day two and were down to a final table just after 7:00 PM.

Just before the dinner break, it was down to Dojiode and Ryan Snyder, a 28-year-old soda blasting company owner and semi-pro from Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Dojiode had a 4-1 chip advantage over his final opponent, but Snyder was able to slowly chip back up to a nearly even stack. An hour into the matchup with blinds at 15,000/30,000, the Dojiode called a three-bet from Snyder before the two players saw a flop of [Kh][Tc][Js]. Hoping to get Doijode off of the hand, Snyder moved all-in with [Ad][Kc]. Dojiode thought for a while before eventually making the call with [Jc][Qc].

The [9d] on the turn sealed the win for Dojiode and sent Snyder out of his seat reeling, but after some composure, Snyder proved himself to be a real class act and congratulated Dojiode and even took him up on his offer to pose with him in his winner’s photo.

Indeed, there were two winners Wednesday night at Caesars Palace.

For his runner-up finish, Snyder collected $15,340.

In addition to first place prize money and the ring, Doijode picked up 50 points toward the Caesars Palace Casino Championship and joins four earlier event winners in a two-way tie for the title. Event 5 winner, Brent Hanks maintained sole possession of the lead with 52.5 points halfway through the series.

The Casino Champion is the player who earns the most points through the 12 events at Caesars Palace. This player will earn an automatic seat to the WSOP Circuit National Championship to be held May 21 – May 23 at Harrah’s New Orleans.
