  1. [caption width="639"] John Andress took home just over 0,000 for winning the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open High Roller (SHRPO photo)[/caption] On Monday, on the bubble of the $25,000 High Roller event at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, John Andress found himself as the center of attention with less than half of a big blind. While others waited for him to bust, Andress managed to survive the bubble and rebuild his stack and found himself with a middle of the pack stack at Tuesday’s final table. On Tuesday, he again was the center of attention, this time as he posed for winner’s photos after beating Mike Leah heads-up to win just over $800,000. The event was one of four final tables at SHRPO that were streamed on Poker Night in America Twitch channel. The first elimination of the day saw two of the shorter stacks going to battle. Sam Panzica, who started the day with the shortest stack, moved all in from the button with his last 415,000. Tom Marchese called from the small blind and tabled [poker card="as"][poker card="2h"] while Panzica showed [poker card="ks"][poker card="8s"]. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="7h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="6s"][poker card="9c"] to eliminate Panzica in eighth place. The very next hand a familiar feel to it and saw yet another elimination. Chance Kornuth shoved his button for 205,000 and Andress called from the small blind. Kornuth turned over [poker card="kh"][poker card="qs"] and found himself up against Andress’ [poker card="as"][poker card="2h"]. The [poker card="9d"][poker card="7c"][poker card="2s"] flop kept Andress ahead and neither the [poker card="5h"] turn or [poker card="9s"] river were enough to save Kornuth from a seventh place finish. While the first two eliminations happened quickly, the remaining six players played for two more hours before another player was sent packing. From UTG, Brandon Adams raised to 180,000 before Omar Zakay moved all in for his last 570,000 from the small blind. Adams called and turned over [poker card="ks"][poker card="qs"] and Zakay showed [poker card="tc"][poker card="th"]. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2c"] flop put Adams ahead and he stayed there through the [poker card="7d"] turn and [poker card="9d"] river to eliminate Zakay in sixth. Just 30 minutes later two players were shown the door in successive fashion. Marchese moved all in from UTG for 1,280,000 before former #1-ranked PocketFiver Chris Hunichen moved all in over the top for 2,050,000 from the button. Mike Leah, in the big blind, tanked for a minute before eventually calling all in for 1,720,000. Marchese was ahead with [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"], Hunichen showed [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] while Leah showed [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"]. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"][poker card="6d"] flop moved Leah ahead, left Marchese hoping for one of two remaining eights or runner-runner straight, while Hunichen was looking for either the jack of hearts or clubs. The [poker card="3d"] turn ended all of those scenarios though as Leah completed a flush. The meaningless river was the [poker card="jc"] and Marchese was eliminated in fifth, while Hunichen was left short-stacked and was eliminated by Adams just minutes later. Adams’ run lasted just another 30 minutes though. Andress folded his button, Leah raised to 350,000 from the small blind and Adams called. After the [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"][poker card="4c"] flop, Leah bet 250,000 and Adams called. The turn was the [poker card="2c"] and Leah bet 500,000 and Adams called again. The [poker card="7d"] hit the river, Leah moved all in for 2,000,000 and Adams called. Leah showed [poker card="tc"][poker card="3c"] fo turned flush and all Adams could do was muck his [poker card="ah"][poker card="7s"] and was eliminated in third place. When heads-up play started, Leah had a 3-1 chip lead over Andress, but over the course of the next three hours Andress overcame Leah and eventually eliminated him. Andress raised to 300,000, Leah re-raised to 1,000,000 and Andress bet enough to force Leah to a decision for his tournament life. Leah called with [poker card="ah"][poker card="jc"] and found himself racing against Andress’ [poker card="8c"][poker card="8h"]. The board ran out [poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3d"][poker card="kc"][poker card="4s"] to eliminate Leah in second place and give Andress the victory and $801,450. Final Table Payouts John Andress - $801,450 Mike Leah - $561,600 Brandon Adams - $351,000 Chris Hunichen - $242,775 Tom Marchese - $155,025 Omar Zakay - $114,075 Chance Kornuth - $93,600 Sam Panzica - $78,975
  2. Prior to last year, the Bay 101 Shooting Star Main Event was a staple of the World Poker Tour schedule. After a one-year hiatus, the Shooting Star returned to the poker calendar this week, just without the WPT TV cameras in tow. That didn't prevent the final table from being a star-studded affair, though. Sandeep Pulusani beat out a final table that included two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Loni Harwood, WPT Five Diamond winner Ryan Tosoc and Super High Roller regular Dan Shak to win $354,400 and the third live title of his career. Only five players remained at the start of the final day of play Friday, with Harwood on top with 34.4% of the chips in play. Early action wasn't kind to Harwood as she lost 25% of her chips to Tosoc and then doubled up Pulusani. She got a chunk of those chips back through John Andress before the Pennsylvania-based poker pro met his demise. Andress was down to 80,000 in the big blind. With the tournament using the Big Blind Ante format, Andress was all in for 80,000 before seeing a card. Shak called the 40,000 from the button and Tosoc completed from the small blind. The flop came [poker card="ad"][poker card="qh"][poker card="jc"] and Tosoc checked. Shak bet 50,000, forcing Tosoc to fold, and tabled [poker card="qd"][poker card="2d"]. Andress turned over [poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"]. The turn was the [poker card="4s"] to officially end Andress' run in fifth place. The river was the [poker card="5s"]. Harwood managed to hang around another 90 minutes before losing a flip in heartbreaking fashion. Tosoc raised to 125,000 from the button before Harwood moved all in for just over 1,000,000 from the big blind. Tosoc called and turned over [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"] while Harwood showed [poker card="kc"][poker card="qd"]. The [poker card="ts"][poker card="9c"][poker card="6s"] flop kept Tosoc ahead. The [poker card="ks"] turn, however, gave Harwood top pair but the [poker card="7c"] river filled Tosoc's straight and eliminated Harwood in fourth place. It took nearly an hour for the next elimination to occur. Shak raised to 150,000 from the button, Tosoc called from the small blind and Pulusani folded his big. Tosoc checked after the flop came [poker card="ks"][poker card="qh"][poker card="5h"] and Shak continued for 200,000. Tosoc raised to 725,000 and then called when Shak moved all in for 3,760,000. Tosoc tabled [poker card="kd"][poker card="qs"] for top two pair while Shak showd [poker card="kh"][poker card="jh"] for top pair with a flush draw. Neither the [poker card="9d"] turn or [poker card="jd"] river were of any help for Shak and he was out in third place. Tosoc started heads up play with a 2.5-1 chip lead over Pulusani and it took just over 15 minutes for the final two players to agree to a deal. Pulusani was guaranteed $304,300 and Tosoc locked up $336,500 with an additional $50,100 for the eventual champion. It took another two hours before Pulusani finished off his comeback. Tosoc raised to 300,000 from the button, Pulusani re-raised to 900,000 and Tosoc announced he was all in and Pulusani called. Tosoc showed [poker card="ad"][poker card="9s"] while Pulusani was well ahead with [poker card="ac"][poker card="as"]. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"][poker card="5s"][2][poker card="8c"] to give Pulusani top set and eliminate Tosoc. The $354,400 score for Pulusani is the second six-figure score of his career and his first since he won a $3,000 NLHE event at the 2013 WSOP for $592,684. Despite not being a part of the WPT, the Shooting Star still drew 440 players for a total prize pool of $2,156,000. Final Table Payouts Sandeep Pulusani - $354,400* Ryan Tosoc - $336,500* Dan Shak - $200,055 Loni Harwood - $142,440 John Andress - $103,710 Steve Kim - $76,850 Hiroaki Harada - $57,980 Antonios Roungeris - $57,980 John Ko - $44,555
