One World Series of Poker (WSOP) ring is impressive. Two can make a career. But Mukul Pahuja just snatched up a third, along with $193,095, at the WSOP circuit main event at Palm Beach Kennel Club. Pahuja has now tallied $4.3 million in cashes and in addition to winning the World Poker Tour Season 12 Player of the Year.
The final table began with Juan Mendoza and Daniel Weinman as the short stacks and they were the first two to go. Pahuja almost followed in their footsteps when he put a J♢, J♤ up against Dalton Mills’ K♡, K♤. But a jack on the flop kept him squarely in the hunt.
When the pool was down to five, Pahuja went head-to-head with start-of-day chip leader Josh Lowing. Pahuja called from the small blind with A♧, Q♢; Lowing held pocket nines. The eventual winner pulled out trip aces on the board (A♢, J♧, 2♤, 10♧, A♡) and Lowing went home with $48,761.
Mills was the next to go, also at Pahuja’s hand.
Pahuja made sure three-handed play didn’t last long. With the board showing K♧, 4♤, 4♢, A♧, 4♡ and Pahuja holding a K♡, J♡, the eventual winner called a bluff by Eric Bunch (10♡, 3♡). The third-place finish sent Bunch home with $87,334, his biggest live cash
Florida resident Adam Levy was the short stack going into heads-up play. He managed to double-up once, but eventually his A♡, 6♤ fell to Pahuja’s 10♧, 10♢.
