Will Joyner Closes Wynn Spring Classic With A Victory
The Wynn Spring Classic events have been hugely popular among poker players from around the world, and that has definitely been the case this year. The event has attracted some of the most well-known players in the game to compete for some lucrative prizes throughout the series.
However, the event was sadly brought to a close for another year on Monday evening, with the $1,600 No Limit Hold’em being among the final events to bring the curtain down on an thrilling series.
Joyner Claims Success In Final Event
It was a thrilling final event for fans and players to take in, but eventually ended after Will Joyner claimed success in the final heads-up challenge against Joey Weissman. It was ultimately deserved by the American, as few could argue that he didn’t deserve to pick up the success from the event. Joyner picked up $243,188 in prize money for winning the event, which was an excellent return. The star now sits in 93rd place on the all-time money list of players from Tennessee. Furthermore, he is 3,103rd on the American All-Time list, and 6,016th on the all-time money list.
It was a tense final heads-up between the final two players left standing, but Weismann agreed to a deal and claimed $230,090 in returns from the event. The top two players took home a considerable pot of the $1 million guarantee, but there were still substantial cash prizes for a number of players to finish on the final table. Daniel Moran finished in third, and claimed $128,374, while Kenny Hnynh and Maziar Keshavarzi were the next two players on the leaderboard. They took home respective prizes of $90,877 and $67,178.

Meanwhile, the only other player to reach the final table and achieve a high finish on the leaderboard was Wagner Wysotchanski, who finished in sixth place and won a cash prize of $52,380.
The event won by Joyner was the penultimate event of the series. The final event concluded on Sunday evening, with James Anderson topping a field of over 200 players to win the $500 No Limit Hold’em and walk away with returns of $25,972. There were a total of 13 individual winners of the events throughout the series, with three events being won by multiple players.
Among the events to have been won by more than one winner were the $300 survivor, which kicked off the series, and the $200 survivor. Some of the players that picked up big cash wins over the past couple of weeks include Francis Anderson, Sung Joo Hyun and Marko Pantelic. Joo Hyun was the winner of the biggest cash prize, as he walked away from the $3,500 Championship with returns of $323,409.
