Ruslan "Russ" Dykshteyn triumphed over a 658-entry field in the $1,675 buy-in Palm Beach Kennel Club Main Event Monday to pocket a $202,335 payday, his first Circuit ring, and a seat into the 2014 WSOP National Championship.

 Dykshteyn is a semi-professional poker player who usually sticks to cash games near his hometown of Brooklyn, including at Atlantic City.

 Richard Kirsch of Fort Lauderdale finished third, earning $91,830, and Ian O'Hara of Boca Raton was fifth ($51,472).
