Team Brunson star, Hoyt Corkins battled his way through a star-studded final table at the World Poker Tour World Poker Open in Tunica, MS. Although starting out the day as one of the shorter stacks at the table, Hoyt was able to capitalize at the right moments, propelling himself to a heads up match that lasted 43 hands.
In the end, it was 28 year old insurance salesman Brett Faustman’s pocket Queens beating Hoyt’s deuces.
Hoyt is no stranger to strong finishes in WPT events. He has now finished third, second twice, and first in four WPT final table appearances.
Good Job Hoyt!
