In February, the CLC Squad won more than $1.4 million in tournament earnings, and it seemed impossible that they’d be able to go back to back… but they did! In the month of March, CLC coaches and students combined for more than $1.45 million in tournament earnings.
March was an especially good month for Kentucky’s Kurt Jewell. He began by finishing runner-up in the 2018 Wynn Spring Classic Championship Event for $158,250 – his third largest career score – and then towards the end of the month took second in the World Series of Poker Circuit Tulsa $2,200 High Roller for $31,135.
Another CLC member, Robert Hankins, was also at the final table of that High Roller, ultimately finishing in fifth place for $10,632. Speaking of final tables, Lisa Costello, who was recently profiled on the LFG Podcast on PokerNews, made the final of the Venetian March Extravaganza Event #6: $600 NLHE. She wound up finishing in seventh place for $9,717.
Similarly, our very own Martin Carnero final tabled the WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino $1,675 Main Event. While he was unable to capture the ring, he did finish in eighth place for a nice $25,550 score.
Alex Foxen continued to show why he’s one of the hottest players in all of poker right now. After a $1.1 million score in December and a $424,625 one in February, he notched $963,880 in March after taking down the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Macau Super High Roller. He also made the final table in Event #13, finishing eighth for $12,684.
For 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Joe McKeehen, March proved to be a good month. He kicked things off by winning the $10,000 buy-in Champions Sit N Go on Live at the Bike! for $60,000, and then took third in the WPT Rolling Thunder Main Event for $131,081. A 38th-place finish in the WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino Main Event for $3,530 was the cherry on top of a great month.
March was also juicy for CLC’s Nick Jivkov as he was busy competing in his hometown series the Chicago Poker Classic. It was during that week he cashed four times for $26,570 and made three final tables. One of them was a win in Event #6: $600 NLHE Mega Deep Stack 8-Max for $18,853. He didn’t stop there though as shortly thereafter he just missed out on making the final table of the Heartland Poker Tour Belterra, finishing in 10th place for $6,408.
Mike Younan was also busy during the Chicago Poker Classic where he cashed three times for $11,318. That included nearly winning Event #4: $400 Pot-Limit Omaha where he finished in second place for $5,848.
Meanwhile, members Brad Sailor and Andy Rubinberg both made the money in the MSPT Meskwaki Casino. The former finished in 16th place for $4,401 and the latter in 20th for $3,761.
Oh, and in the online realm, Nick Petrangelo topped a field of 162 entrants to win the PokerStars $2,100 High Roller for $63K.
