Kurtis Boutelle defeated 291 other entrants to take down the 2015 Seneca Fall Poker Classic Main Event at the Niagara Falls Poker Room this Monday, earning $62,933 for his efforts.
By Sunday, the field had been whittled to 60 players vying for nine spots at the final table. After 51 more were eliminated, the denouement began with Alex Visbisky holding the chip lead.
The final table lasted just one day. Tony Dojka was the first to bust, with his weak ace running stump-first into Buck Ramsay’s dominant one. Next, Alfred Stempien took eighth when Boutelle’s queenstrumped his K♢, J♢. Despite his early knockout of Dojka, Ramsay was next to depart in seventh place.
Visbisky still held the lead when Ryan Rivers fell to Boutelle and went home in sixth. Silvio DeRubeis was sent packing in fifth when he shoved on Q♢, Q♤ against Boutelle’s A♢, A♧.
From there, Boutelle’s chip count declined when he called both David Battaglia and Nathan Torrance in shoves with a K♢, 10♧. Battaglia had A♡, Q♧ while Torrance had pocket jacks and spiked trips on the river. The third jack sent Battaglia home in fourth with $21,603.
Visbisky bowed out in third, pitting Torrance and Boutelle in heads-up play
As with many an existence, Torrance’s tournament life went out with a whimper, not a bang; on the final hand, he went all-in and wound up with a 10-high and against Boutelle’s ace-high.
