Carpet Storeowner Jason Brin Wins Inaugural WPT Choctaw Main Event

Check Regal Poker for Latest Poker News, poker strategy tips and more.
(pokernews.com)- The inaugural World Poker Tour Choctaw Main Event in Durant, Oklahoma proved a big success as 1,175 entrants took to the felt to create a $3,973,725 prize pool, which crushed the $2,000,000 guarantee. The tournament attracted a who’s who of poker notables, and fittingly by the final table contained several exciting storylines.
For instance, Mina Greco was looking to become the first female to win an open WPT tournament, while Andy Hwang was looking to etch his name on the WPT Champions Cup for a second time. There was also Darren Elias, who was looking to win his third WPT title within a year’s span (he won the WPT Borgata and WPT Caribbean late last year).
Then there was Jason Brin, a 42-year-old carpet storeowner from De Soto, Kansas. He didn’t care about the aforementioned storylines. He was intent on winning first televised tournament of the WPT Season XIV, which is just what he did for $682,975 and a seat into the season-ending WPT Championship.

Prior to his win, Brin had $105,277 in live tournament earnings with his biggest cash being $29,847 for a fifth-place finish in the 2014 Heartland Poker Tour Kansas City Main Event. Brin, who cut his chops on both the HPT and Mid-States Poker Tour, also cashed for $18,912 back in 2012 when he finished fourth in the MSPT Meskwaki.
