14 October 2019 (Baltimore, MD) - Nicholas Verderamo won the $3,250 No-Limit High Roller at Horseshoe Baltimore's WSOP circuit stop. He took home $34,730 and his fourth ring in as many circuit stops.
Verderamo is an actuary who lives close to the Horseshoe and he's attended three circuit stops here. He's won a ring at each of them.
Today, he late registered for the High Roller and topped a field of 29 players to claim ring number four.
Verderamo made three final tables in this circuit stop and finally broke through with a win today. He added that he has also finished third several times in the race for Casino Champion, and that because Mike Wang has crushed this stop, and Patrick Lacey made another final table, that he is likely to finish third again.
He now has $158,901 in career WSOP winnings on 22 cashes. Most of that has come from only the circuit. He has four wins in seven final tables.
Only the top five spots made the money for this event.
An Huang came into the day as the chip leader and Christian Harder was the first player to be eliminated in the money. Harder finished in fifth place and took home $6,578 after getting all in against Huang preflop.
Harder had pocket eights and lost the race to be eliminated.
Then it was A.J. Kelsall who hit the rail in fourth place. Kelsall, who had already won an event this stop. He actually beat Verderamo heads up to win Event #4: $400 Monster Stack.
Verderamo did the honors and eliminated Kelsall with pocket kings.
Huang was the third place finisher, taking home $14,471. Verderamo eliminated him as well when he held with ace-high.
He then went on to defeated Jonathan Gilliam heads up to claim his fourth ring and the $34,730 first prize. It also looks like he has a pretty good shot at finishing third in the Casino Championship race for the third time.
