WSOPC Sydney: Shivine Abdine wins $5,000 No Limit Holdem Event

The World Series of Poker International Circuit is in full flight at The Star in Sydney, with a full schedule of events well attended by the best of the Australian poker circuit, as well as a sprinkling of international talents.

This week, the first of the big buy-in events took place with a field of 203 entries taking to the felt in the $5,000 No Limit Holdem Event. When the dust settled, it was Shivine Abdine who had conquered the field to capture $260,000 in prize money as well as the coveted WSOP Circuit Ring. The victory was Abdine’s largest of his career, taking his earnings in excess of US$1 million and into the Top 50 all-time Australian money earners.

Abdine overcame a tough final table that included one of Australia’s finest players in James Obst, as well as rising young gun Adrian Attenborough. Abdine and Attenborough would be left heads-up for the title, but rather than duke it out, the two agreed to a series of flips where they were all-in blind before the cards had been dealt. Seven flips later and Abdine had emerged victorious.
