(pokernews.com)- The latest World Series of Poker Circuit stop at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas was full of highlights, from Brandon West topping a huge field in the opening event to Joe Kuether capturing the High Roller title. Most recently, Sean Berrios took down the WSOP Circuit Planet Hollywood Main Event – a tournament that attracted 1,304 entrants and created a prize pool of $1,956,000 – for a hefty $347,192 payday and a seat into the season-ending 2016 WSOP Global Casino Championship.
Prior to the win, Berrios had just $113,636 in live tournament earnings, with his best cash being $57,536 for a fourth-place finish in the 2014 WSOP Event #43: $1,500 Limit Hold’em. He also finished 70th in that year’s Millionaire Make for $18,091.

“I’m just ecstatic right now,” Berrios told WSOP officials after the win. “I just stayed patient and I waited to pick my spots.”
Berrios considers himself an amateur player, due in no small part to the fact that he is an active duty member of the Air Force.
