Brett Murray has been locked in and @WSOP Circuit #RingHunting since this series started Thursday afternoon. He as a 7th in Event 2 - $365 with $100 Bounties and a 49th in the 1,406-entry Event 1.
Now he has a circuit ring, defeating Randy Gil heads-up for the Event 5 - the 8-Max title.
Murray 3-bet Gil the final hand, Gil 4-bet, Murray 5-bet and all the chips went in the middle.
Gil turned up AK and Murray showed Aces.
The board ran out 3-8-7-J-5 and Murray captured the Ring along with $9,817 and enough points to take over the WSOP Circuit Thunder Valley Casino Champion lead after 5 events.
Not a bad day, when you also add in his buddy Alex Greenblatt taking down the HPT Black Hawk title a few hours earlier. Brett was watching the LiveStream from his 8-Max tables throughout the day.
Gil earns $6,056 as runner-up.
