Rhode Island Player John Varela Wins The Eastern Poker Tour Season 30 October $10,000 Monthly Championship

Today was a very cold day here in Walpole at the VFW but the play inside warmed up everyone.

One hundred eighty-three (183) came out to play for a chance at the $10,000 prize pool and John Varela, from Warwick, Rhode Island came out on top to take home $2500!

John was 5th in chips coming to this Final Table. “My goal was to play tight until we made 8th place, after that, opened up my game and play a little loose.” John’s key hand of the day was when he knocked out Kyle Vredenburg in 7th when he woke up with Aces facing a big bet from Kyle.

The final hand when the blinds were 60,000/120,000 the chips were pretty much even. As you can see from the photo, Brad had turned a straight but John had a higher straight on the river and when we counted the chips, John had Brad by 500,000!

This is John’s 27th win overall AND because of his 6th place finish in the August Monthly, John now has a DOUBLE STACK for the Season 30 Televised Finals!

John wants to give a shout out to his 3 kids, Jordan (17), Alexsia (12) and Adrianna (9). He loves to play at the Islander and recommends highly the Chinese food there!

— Side Notes —

We added 3 new players to a Final Table in the Monthly (Brian Tehan, Scott Berberian and Brad Grinnell).

We will see everyone on December  7th for the November $10,000 Monthly Championship right here at the VFW!
