Brian Soja Wins Anniversary Tourney

Brian Soja Anniversary TourneyBrian Soja of New Brighton took down the Running Aces Anniversary Tourney last night – the $275 buy-in event attracted 598 entrants over four flights – creating a $35K first place prize.

The final three players worked a deal, Soja would take $23K, Matt Alexander & Jason Sell would each take $18K – but they would all play for $10,600 and the title.

Soja would eliminate Alexander in 3rd place when Alexander shoved from the small blind with KcJc.  Soja would call with A7 offsuit and take the pot with Ace-high.

Not too long after with a massive chip lead, Soja would shove KQ, Sell would call with A7 – but this time A7 is no good as Soja would hit broadway on the river – the board landed 6-7-J-A-10.

Soja would take home $33,600 for his efforts! ┬áThis was Soja’s second large score of the year, he also placed 2nd at the MSPT Canterbury Park in April for $52,161.

You can hear Soja talk about his big win Monday night on Minnesota Poker Weekly at 9PM on KFAN 100.3 FM.
