Allen Carter Wins Southern Poker Championship

The first three days of the World Poker Tour Southern Poker Championship were more like a marathon than regular table play and the final table proved to be no different. The six players who made up the televised final table were virtual unknowns who played very cautiously for the nearly eight hours it took to complete the game. The result was many lead changes as the players jockeyed for position for an amazing 154 hands.
Below are the chip counts and their seating positions going into the final table: b
1.    Hilbert Shirey  –  1,353,000
2.    Bobby Suer  –  651,000
3.    Tyler Smith  –  1,271,000
4.    Allen Carter  –  1,673,000
5.    S. Shamseddin  – 3,061,000
6.    Chuck Kim  –  386,000

The first player to be ousted from the tournament came after 93 hands of play in which time Chuck Kim went from short stack to chip leader then back to short stack again, finally going home after his A-K lost to Soheil Shamseddin’s A-9. He earned $105,490 for his first ever World Poker Tour cash.
One of the young players at the table, Tyler Smith took a bad beat early in the tournament and scratched his way back to make the final table. He wound up placing in fifth, taking home $134,500 after losing a hand to Allen Carter.
Next to go was short stack Hilbert Shirey when his J-10 suited couldn’t hold up against Bobby Suer’s A-8. Shirey took home a healthy $184,607 for his efforts at the final table.
Shamseddin was in good shape after making a few double ups but wound up sacrificing it all for a poorly timed bluff on the river against Carter’s trip tens. Shamseddin who was the most experienced player at the table, went home in third place and earned $263,725 in the process.
Going into heads up play, Carter had a slight chip lead on Suer. The next 30 hands proved to be crucial as Carter opened up his lead and ultimately claimed the title when his A-4 made the wheel against Suer’s A-K. Suer earned a payday of $501,028 for his 2nd place performance. Carter claimed the $1 million first place prize as well as a $25,000 seat into the World Poker Tour Championship next April.
