Valentin Vornicu managed to become the best of 349 registered players in the tournament. In an event called Harrah New Orleans # 3: $ 365 Single Day NLH Re-Entry, he received $ 24,084. This result occurred immediately after winning the Event # 1 tournament: $ 365 NLH Re-Entry, which involved 1,340 people and which he received $ 64,205. Thus, for several days he managed to break free into the unqualified leaders of the WSOP Circuit in terms of the number of gold rings won.

At the final table, Valentin Vornicu came out with a chip leader. However, after several unsuccessful hands, he lost most of the chips and stayed with a short stack. But, all the same luck on this day was on the side of the Canadian player, which allowed him to win his 12th gold ring WSOP Circuit.
