Kevin Elia Wins Maryland Live Main Event

Local Kevin Elia from Baltimore took home more than $55k and the first-ever main event poker title to come out of the state of Maryland. Kevin battled a field of 131 players in the Maryland Live! Poker Classic $3,500 main event. Kevin played a solid 3 days of poker outlasting some great local talent along the lines of Christian Harder, Anthony Gregg, James St. Hilaire, Richard Smith, and World Series Main Event Champion Greg Merson. It was a roller-coaster ride for Kevin who found himself the chip leader at the final table when discussing an 8-way chop. When all the numbers were written down Kevin agreed to take home $50k for being the chip leader and then all 8 players agreed to play a $1k sit and go for the trophy and then title of Maryland Live! Poker Classic Main Event Champ. After all eight had taken their seats in the sit and go it fired off, dropping one by one until only Kevin was left standing. All 10 players who made the final table were locals from the Maryland and Virginia area. This was a great success for Maryland Live! Casino and poker in the state of Maryland. Be on the lookout for a repeat victory from Kevin when Mayland Live hosts another tournament series in July 2014.
