Circuit phenom Steve Foutty takes down the $400 Pot-Limit Omaha event to earn seventh ring

Steve Foutty just took down the $400 Pot-Limit Omaha event at the Bally's Casino World Series of Poker Circuit. The win was the circuit phenom’s seventh WSOP victory, and twenty-fifth final table of his career.

“I do not have a recipe for success. I put in a lot of volume. I don’t think I’m that good, but I don’t think I’m bad either,” Foutty said.

The event was scheduled to be a two-day adventure, but the field of 104 players quickly dwindled down to final table six hours into Day 1. A series of notable players were still in the hunt when the final table commenced, including two-time ring winner Nikhil Gera, Denis Bilodeau, with one ring, and bracelet winner, Andrew Donabedian.

Foutty eventually found himself heads-up against Donabedian, who won his bracelet in the $600 Pot-Limit Omaha Deepstack event in the 2019 WSOP to earn $205,605. Foutty started heads-up play with a convincing 4 to 1 chip lead and was able to hold onto it for the win.

Foutty cashed is first WSOP event in 2008 and has become a seasoned veteran with 90 WSOP cashes over the years, and he admits that the game is evolving fast and that he needs to work hard to evolve with it.

“Everything is different. They game is evolving every day, every minute, and every hour. And I have to make myself fit in between all of it. I’m trying to rely on my live reads, and I know that the players that play better fundamental poker than I do will have more success long-term, but I like my chances at any tournament,” said the winner.

Foutty maneuvered a field of 104 entrants to earn $9,880 and seventh 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: Steve Foutty ($9,880)
2nd: Andrew Donabedian ($6,101)
3rd: Todd Kobrin ($4,124)
4th: Denis Bilodeau ($2,881)
5th: Toomas Elvis ($2,081)
6th: Nikhil Gera ($1,557)
7th: Charles Jett ($1,209)
8th: Donald Nyberg ($974)
9th: Ali Nikpour-Badr ($816)
