The World Series of Poker Circuit event at Harrah’s Tunica drew to a close Thursday evening with Michael Crump of Morrison, Ill., emerging as the victor. Crump denied Mark "Pegasus" Smith of Kentucky a record fifth circuit championship. Smith won his record-tying fourth ring at Atlantic City just last month.
Crump survived a field of 304 entrants to make it to the final table.
