The World Series of Poker is one of the global-based platforms where players cement their standing in the gambling industry while optimizing their grand prize sizes. Canadian Cory Carroll has final tabled twice at the World Poker Tour Championship and has also won the WSOP Circuit Championship Event. However, with the advent of poker tournaments online where opportunities are even greater, he has also ventured in these games. Along these lines, his resume encompasses notable achievements in games he has played.
Online, Carroll has final tabled twice at the Sunday Million $215 buy-in playing under the screen title “UGOTPZD” placing third to rake in $55,289.86 in the 2006 tournament. On that year, he plunged into the November 5th Sunday Million coming second in his heat to walk away with $119,091. Conversely, his resume is rich with winnings he has garnered in live events. In 2007, he played at the WSOP $10,000 NLHE Main Event Championship to place 91st in a pool of 6,358 entrants for $67,535. Carroll brought the final table down in the WSOP Caesars Palace, Las Vegas for a grand prize of $515,176.
Also remarkable is his runner up finish to Jonathan Little in the World Poker Tour Mirage Poker Showdown where he netted $561,369. In the 2008 Five Star World Poker Classic $25,500 WPT event, he lead in chips only to end up finishing 4th in his heat to squeeze out $593,645. With his straddle online and in live events, Carroll has managed to horn his skills with greater versatility. Similarly, his winnings are spread in many but high-profile tournaments that have allowed him to enlarge his bankroll.
In 2008 hitherto, his overall live event earnings were beyond $1,800,000. Though he is not the best in the Canadian all-time-money winners’ list, his record is an appropriate template for upcoming poker players.
