Rhode Island Player Chuck “Luck Box” McCaughey Wins the Eastern Poker Tour March $10,000 Monthly Championship

On what was a busy day here at Walpole, with the Monthly, BPO/Milly Maker  and two other tournaments going on, we have finished our first tournament of the day.

With Spring weather finally here, 194 players came down to the VFW in Walpole for their shot at the $10,000 prize pool. One of those players was Chuck McCaughey from the Rhode Island region. His goal was to make the Top 16 and to hope that Mike Unsworth did not do better so he could lock up the Rhode Island Points Champion. Well, both Chuck and Mike made the Final Table so Chuck was worried. Like two horses battling down the stretch, both had their eyes on the prize.

Chuck ended up with the RI Points Title after Mike was eliminated in 7th. Now he was after the $2500. And that’s what he did to win his 44th career EPT win.

He was 4th in chips starting this Final Table and he knocked out the first two players (Radanes Lopez and Sonya Harrison). Bob Young was his last victim.

Chuck and Bob BOTH qualified for a Double Stack for next Sunday at Foxwoods!
