Event #6
No-Limit Hold'em
Buy-In: $365
Total Entries: 157
Prizepool: $47,100

Kip Jones defeated the 157-player field in Event #6: $365 No-Limit Hold'em to earn $12,718 and his second career WSOP Circuit ring. Jones had to survive a tough final table that included two WSOP gold bracelet holders in Greg Kolo and Ryan Laplante. He also was challenged with outlasting Mans Montgomery in a two hour heads up duel.

Jones won his first career WSOP Circuit ring in 2011 at the IP Biloxi stop. Jones is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and the majority of his 22 career WSOP cashes are at IP Biloxi and Horseshoe Tunica.

"It feels good. I haven't been playing as much lately. I wanted to validate the first [ring]," said Jones.

One big difference between this victory and his first WSOP win was that he had the support of the rail this time around. Jones' was wife was on the rail watching the action play out. Jones said that in his IP Biloxi win he had one supporter verse his opponent who had a much larger rail.

"It is a little bit better having someone root for you," said Jones.

The grind for Jones isn't over. The tournament finished just in time for Jones to enter Event #10: 365 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack and try to go back-to-back. Jones elected to enter last minute and take a shot at winning his third career Circuit ring.

Jones owns a landscaping business. His World Series of Poker resume includes 22 cashes (4 WSOP, 18 Circuit) and six final tables. This victory pushed Jones' career WSOP tournament earnings over the $65K mark.

Final table results:

1st: Kip Jones - $12,718 + Circuit gold ring
2nd: Mans Montgomery - $7,859
3rd: Rick Smith - $5,657
4th: Greg Kolo - $4,146
