RESULTS

Thomas Kornechuk has defeated defending champion Brett Murray heads-up to win the WSOP Circuit Thunder Valley $921,120 prize pool Main Event. Kornechuk earns $193,439, the circuit ring and en entry in the WSOP Global Championship for the win.

Kornechuk took the chiplead in the WSOP Circuit Thunder Valley Main Event just before the money bubble with 63 players remaining. He stayed near the top of the counts throughout the remainder of Day 2 play, coming in to the final day 8/17.

Kornechuk took out one of the first four players to hit the rail, then added to that number by knocking out Paul CHai in 10th, Paul Camby in 9th and Chris Tham in 6th. He, Murray, Tony Bracy and Jeremy Joseph were the top stacks through the final table.

Once heads-up play began, Kornechuk established a lead, saw it go away 3-4 times, then surged late to wrap up with the win.
