Cosmin Joldis Joins WSOP Circuit Winners Club with Victory at Planet Hollywood

Joldis, a good friend of 12-time gold ring winner Valentin Vornicu, took down the $600 Double Stack No-Limit Hold’em for his first piece of WSOP Circuit gold

Cosmin Joldis from Romania has become the latest player to capture a gold ring from the ongoing WSOP Circuit Planet Hollywood series. The player was crowned the victor of Event #5: $600 Double Stack No-Limit Hold’em to claim his first piece of Circuit jewelry and a first-place prize of $19,758.

The event drew an international field of 137 entries who created a prize pool of $70,555. Players battled it out for two days until there was just one last contender left. Day 1 of the event ended with 27 hopefuls still in contention for the gold piece. They had two important tasks ahead for Day 2 – to burst the money bubble and then to determine the champion.

There were payouts for the top 15 finishers, min-cashes were worth $1,191. Action unfolded quite quickly on Day 2 of the tournament and it was not long before the money bubble burst. Players then kept leaving the poker tables at the host venue until there were just four of them left at the time when action stopped for dinner break.

Joldis was the chip leader at the time with 2.3 million and a good advantage over his three remaining opponents. Daniel Perkins had the second largest stack at that point, but he only had 1.2 million worth in chips.

Joldis Eyes Global Casino Championship Seat

The final stage of the tournament was quite a race. It took relatively quickly for the final four to be whittled down to just Joldis. Martin Logue was the Romanian’s final challenge before claiming the title. Logue was eyeing his first gold ring from the series, but eventually finished second to scoop his first WSOP Circuit cash of $12,210.

As for the winner, he came into the Double Stack event fresh off a fourth-place finish in a $400 buy-in event at Planet Hollywood. The player now has 77.5 points from the stop and holds a firm lead in the Casino Championship race. The player who becomes the Planet Hollywood Casino Champion, that is the one who accumulates the most points throughout the stop, will secure a seat into the season-ending $1 million guaranteed Global Casino Championship.

Joldis told WSOP staff that he will be playing the Main Event over the weekend in a bid to cement his top spot.

The Romanian player is a good friend of WSOP Circuit star and record-breaking gold ring winner Valentin Vornicu, who himself hails from Romania. Aside from his participation in WSOP Circuit events, Joldis has also had quite the run in the WSOP. The player cashed for over $225,000 during last year’s edition of the summer poker series. Most notably, he finished 50th in the 2017 WSOP Main Event, collecting $145,733 for his deep run.
