Celebration is in order for the WSOP's newest Champion - Joseph Mattingly

Elizabeth, Ind. (Oct. 2, 2015) -- Joseph Mattingly has come from behind in Event #1 to beat James Hill heads-up and earn his first career WSOP Circuit gold ring. Mattingly, who remained near the middle of the counts for most of the final table, stayed patient and was able to fully capitalize as soon as good cards starting coming his way.

Mattingly started out heads-up play against Hill as a 2:1 dog in chips. After nearly a whole level of grinding away with no real changes in the stack, Mattingly was able to completely reverse roles when he doubled up through Hill by slow playing quads. Mattingly hit quads on the turn and checked to Hill who checked behind. The river brought a full house for Hill and Mattingly was able to double up after a bet, a raise by Hill and then a three-bet all-in by Mattingly, which was called by Hill after quite a bit of verbal deliberation.

Mattingly perfectly used his momentum and his opponent's frustration to win the tournament just a few hands later. Mattingly flopped a king high flush and induced Hill to move all-in on the turn drawing dead. The gold ring and the money was Mattingly's as soon as the meaningless river card hit.

"[Hill] is super tough. He will never give anything away. He will not put a coin in the pot if he does not have a draw or the best hand," said Mattingly about his heads-up opponent.

The 59-year-old Mattingly is a grain farmer from Springfield, Kentucky. He now has 11 WSOP related cashes to his name. His most recent WSOP cash prior to today's victory came at this year's Seniors event in Las Vegas. Mattingly finished in 47th place out of the massive 4,193 player field to earn $9,773 - his largest WSOP score up until today.

"Well bad luck, but it was great. I love going to Vegas and playing the Seniors event every year." said Mattingly on his deep run at this year's Seniors event.

Mattingly was ecstatic about earning some WSOP hardware, but said that it was now time to go after a gold bracelet to pair with his newly acquired gold ring.

-----

Event #1 was the first of 12 gold ring events on the WSOP Circuit schedule at Horseshoe S. Indiana. The $365 No-Limit Hold’em tournament attracted 167 players generating a $50,100 prize pool. The top 18 players were paid.

Day 1 began Thursday at noon and lasted until the final table was reached, which was shortly into Level 19 around 12:15 a.m. Friday. Day 2 began Friday at 2 p.m. with nine players remaining. The tournament concluded at about 5:45 p.m. near the end of Level 23.
