Arthur Morris Champions WSOPC Tulsa Main Event For $182,379
Poker pro Arthur Morris navigated his way through a 646 entry-field in the WSOP Circuit Tulsa Main Event to win his first circuit ring, a career-best $182,379, and a seat in the 2023 Tournament of Champions. Mike Cordell cashed $112,717 in second place.
This was Morris’ 42nd WSOP cash, boosting his WSOP tournament earnings to $719,613. He also crossed $1 Million in recorded live tournament winnings, which according to his Hendon Mob profile, now stand at $1,002,707.
After the victory, Morris said, “It’s been a long time coming. I’ve been playing for 17 years, so it feels really good.”
He added, “I’ve had an outrageous amount of unofficial final tables this past year, and it’s really tough to make it that deep with nothing really to show for it, but I really feel now that I’m getting over that hump,”
The road to victory was anything but easy for Morris. While he entered the final day second in chips, he fell to the bottom of the counts at one point. However, he kept calm and continued building momentum until he held all the chips in play.
Morris later said, “I’ve had so many people rooting for me throughout the year, and I just want to thank all my family and friends, especially my wife Pauleen and son Jack. I’m excited to go home and spend the next week with them.”
The $1,700 buy-in Main Event attracted 646 entries over two starting flights, collecting $978,690 in the prize pool. The top 98 places passed the money line with a min-cash worth $2,547.

After winning his second event of the series, Singh said, “It feels great. I’m actually on a business and family and poker trip, so it’s good to play late registration and come in, and the tournament structures are awesome, so you can come in late after work and play some poker. It’s fantastic, and it feels great. Absolutely, I like to play well, and I call myself a true poker amateur, so from that angle, I have to play well against these great players that are here from all over that travel here.”
When asked about his plans for the remainder of the series, he said, “I talked to my wife. She is a happy camper, and in she is a very supportive wife, and she is OK with me staying over, so perhaps I won’t be going back (to Delray Beach) because it’s a pretty long drive, four hours each way, and that takes a toll on me, on your sleep and all, so perhaps I’m still 50/50 on that, but I’m more inclined to play some more tournaments and late reg in Level 7 or 8,”
Singh added, “My daughter and son, we have a trophy competition going on. My daughter is into ice skating, and my son is into swimming, so they have their own collection of trophies, and when I win a trophy to take home, they are motivated to win more.”
