Online PR News – 15-February-2011 – – Alexander Kuzmin took down the 2011 Southern Poker Championship in the Biloxi, Mississippi. A total of 214 players created a $1,483,298 prize pool with Kuzmin taking home $601,469 for the win.
Kuzmin had to rally from the short stack, contend with tough competition, and stay alive in a marathon that lasted nearly 12 hours before it went to a close. At the beginning, he was already the chip leader but Allen Carter was the crowd favorite. However, Carter was knocked out in third place, leaving Kuzmin and Leif Force confronting each other for the championship title. Kuzmin prevailed early Friday when he went all-in with a Kd4s. Force called with a Jc9c and got zero support from the Qd5s4d3h2c board.
