Patrick Banyaniye is the Eastern Poker Tour’s October $10,000 Monthly Champion

After almost a 12 hour battle, Patrick Banyaniye has won this month’s Monthly Championship at the VFW at Walpole, Mass.

The day started with 210 players. By the time the dust settled, Patrick found himself 6th in chips coming to the Final Table. He knocked out 5 players on this final table.

Patrick’s big hand of the table was when he eliminated two players in one hand. Dave Starr started the action “Under the Gun” with 6♥ 6♦. In middle position, Banyaniye moves all-in with A♠ A♥, when the action returned to Jeff DeSousa in the Small Blind, he went all-in and had 7♥ 7♠. No six or seven appeared on the board to help Starr or DeSousa. After that hand, it was Banyaniye who was in control of the table



This 34 year old from Providence, RI. plays 2-3 times a week.

Patrick qualified for the tournament via being in the top percentage in the Rhode Island region.

Even though this is his first Monthly win, he has won 21 other times.

“I plan on putting this money in the bank” says Banyaniye after being asked if he has any plans with the $2500.
