 Dathan Kuppin grabs first WSOP ring after taking down the $600 No-Limit Hold'em event.

Dathan Kuppin just took down the $600 No-Limit Hold'em event at the Bicycle Casino World Series of Poker Circuit. 

“It’s feel exhausting but, of course, really f*cking good. Today was definitely a grind, especially since it was a one-day tournament. But when tough got hard I buckled down and didn’t make any bad decisions. And obviously, I had a good run of cards, as all champions do. I stuck to my guns and duked it out, and here I am,” said the Los Angeles native.

The one-day event reach a final table after eight hours of play, and Kuppin sat on an impressive chip lead with nine players left. Henguy Sun hit the rail in 8th place, and ring winner Ed Alikhani joined him shortly after. A couple quick eliminations followed, and four players remained when Kuppin won one of the more important pots of the tournament. 

“I opened with ten’s and ‘Rampage’ [Ethan Yau] just shipped on the button. I called pretty quickly as I put him on a smaller pair then mine, which was exactly what he had. I held, which no one did against him today, and that got me to 6.5 million, and it was honestly smooth sailing from there, said Kuppin.

Kuppin eventually found himself heads-up against veteran player Ron Swain. Kuppin went into the heads-up play with a significant chip lead, and was able to take it down after less than fifteen minutes of heads-up action to earn his first WSOP victory.

Kuppin outlasted a field of 443 entrants to earn $45,445 and his first WSOP Circuit gold ring. He also earns a seat in the Tournament of Champions, held in Las Vegas in the summer of 2022.

Here are the final table results:

1st: Dathan Kuppin ($45,445)
2nd: Ron Swain ($28,085)
3rd: Ethan Yau ($20,555)
4th: Stephen Goldestein ($15,250)
5th: Robert Buckingham ($11,475)
6th: David Linden ($7,655)
7th: Ed Alikhani ($6,775)
8th: Hengyu Sun ($5,315)
9th: Elvis Toomas ($4,235)
