WPT History Books: Byron Kaverman

Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Byron Kaverman (Day 1A) There are not too many players on the World Poker Tour who can claim a cash at a double-digit number of events and Byron Kaverman is one of those players. He has cashed 10 times in 33 WPT events for an impressive cash-rate of 30.3 percent.

Kaverman has earned a total of $626,539 at WPT events and two cashes that contributed the bulk to that total came at final tables. He took fourth place at the Grand Prix de Paris during Season X, good for $218,860. Kaverman was also the runner-up in the bestbet Jacksonville Fall Poker Scramble during Season XI, good for $236,592.

Kaverman has been very consistent during the current season, with five Season XII cashes already. That includes a 21st-place finish at the recent Borgata Winter Poker Open in late January. Here is a look at the WPT career results list for Kaverman.

Season X: Grand Prix de Paris - Fourth Place ($218,850)
Season X: Jacksonville bestbet Open - Seventh Place ($47,312)

The board comes 10spade4heart2diamond9diamond7spade, and the pocket aces hold up for Siegel to win the pot and double up in chips.

Shaun Suller Eliminated by Dan Wach

Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Shaun Suller
A short-stacked Shaun Suller (pictured above) is all in with QclubJspade against the pocket tens of Dan Wach, but Suller is unable to improve as the board runs out 7diamond7club2heartKheart5spade.

Dan Wach  -  162,000  (81 bb)
Shaun Suller  -  Eliminated

Suller was the last player in the WPT Player of the Year race who had a shot at catching points leader Mukul Pahuja -- and he'd need to win here to do it.

With Suller's elimination, Pahuja locks up the WPT Season XII Player of the Year title. Congratulations!
