  1. The Main Event of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open starts on August 28. Although it's a US-based event that takes place in South Florida, the tournament will see a number of players buy directly in through the PokerStars client. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsson Poker, a leading global online gaming provider. Betsson Poker is available on Mobile and offers regular promotions to live events around the world along with great bonuses and competitions. Play nowfor a chance to win the a Dream Holiday with the Grand Poker Adventures throughout 2014! --- There are three starting days of the tournament (August 28, 29, and 30) and the $5,300 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event guarantees $10 million. According to PokerStars officials, "PokerStars players (.com / .eu only) wishing to DBI themselves into the event can go to 'Events' - 'More' – 'Special' and look for the tournaments listed as 'Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship Day 1A, 1B, or 1C.' While this event is unlimited re-entry, players are only allowed to enter a single Day 1 through PokerStars and they are not able to utilize the client for any re-entries." The link between PokerStars and Seminole is unclear. PokerStars has no online presence in the US market and hasn't since Black Friday. Therefore, its entire user base is located outside of the US, meaning that anyone who heads to South Florida will likely have travel costs associated with the trip. Speaking of the absence of PokerStars in the US, text on the site notes, "Real money play on PokerStars is not allowed while physically located within the United States of America under any circumstances. Players who attempt to play for real money while they are physically located in the USA will lose their playing privileges and/or funds in their account." A PokerStars representative told PocketFives on Tuesday, "We understand that there may be a number of players who will want to play both EPT Barcelona and the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event and we are happy to help them do so. We've done this because we think it will be good for players." Anyone who buys into the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event through PokerStars will get direct entry into the tournament, not cash on site. Poker Players Alliance Executive Director John Pappas was pleased with the news that Seminole and PokerStars had teamed up, telling PocketFives, "This is an industry where competition seems to get the better of everything, often to the detriment of the players. So, it is very refreshing to see cooperation between two gaming companies. It is a good development for the players and, given the size and reach of these two brands, further cooperation could be a huge development for the growth of the game." Last year's Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event drew 2,384 entrants and had a prize pool that nearly lapped $12 million. The end of the tournament was a PocketFiver versus PocketFiver showdown, as Blair blur5f6Hinkle (pictured) edged out Justin ZeeJustin Bonomo in a battle of World Series of Poker bracelet winners.

  2. Despite calling poker a "distraction" and a "very dark game" as well as refusing media interviews, Dan Colman (pictured) has certainly demonstrated that he's a force to be reckoned with. On Wednesday, Colman won the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event, which had a $2.5 million overlay and a $10 million guarantee, to take home $1.4 million. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsson Poker, a leading global online gaming provider. Betsson Poker is available on Mobile and offers regular promotions to live events around the world along with great bonuses and competitions. Play nowfor a chance to win the a Dream Holiday with the Grand Poker Adventures throughout 2014! --- Yes, this is the same Colman who won the Big One for One Drop at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas for $15.3 million this year. The same Colman who said most recreational players were losing money they couldn't afford to lose. The same Colman who said advertising gambling on television was playing off "people's impulses" and "targeting their weaknesses in order for them to make irrational decisions." Despite all of the negative press surrounding Colman, he has certainly excelled this year. In fact, he is now up to #3 on tournament poker's all-time money list, trailing only Daniel Negreanu and Antonio Esfandiari. Mike timex McDonald perhaps put it best in a Tweet that had been re-Tweeted over 50 times when we checked it out: Colman battled PocketFiver Mike goleafsgoeh Leah heads-up in the Florida poker tournament and entered with a slight chip lead. In the final hand, Colman, a heads-up specialist, 3bet pre-flop with A-K, according to CardPlayer, and Leah 4bet all-in with Q-J of clubs. Colman called and was ahead the entire way to book the win in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event. Here's how the final table cashed out: 1. Daniel Colman - $1,446,710 2. Mike goleafsgoehLeah - $1,047,638 3. Shawn flexicom Cunix - $748,313 4. John JRD312 Dolan - $548,763 5. Joe daPHUNNIEman Kuether - $424,044 6. Martin Hanowski - $324,269 7. Blake Bohn - $249,438 8. Brian SN8WMAN Hawkins - $199,550 9. Roman Valerstein - $149,663 The win is the latest in a string of impressive performances from Colman. Here's a look at a few of the highlights over the last year, with data provided by the Hendon Mob: April 2014 €100,000 NLHE Super High Roller, EPT Grand Final 1st place for $2,127,398 June 2014 $1 Million WSOP Big One for One Drop 1st place for $15,306,668 August 2014 €50,000 NLHE Super High Roller, EPT Barcelona 2nd place for $1,118,479 September 2014 $5,300 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event 1st place for $1,446,710 Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  3. [caption width="640"] Jason Koon, Marvin Rettenmaier, Bradley Snider and Ruslan Dykshteyn all took down SHRPO Big 4 events on Tuesday[/caption] The 2016 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open was 28 total events but on Tuesday the focus was on the “Big 4” as four final tables, packed with some of the best tournament players in the world, played down to four different winners including Jason Koon and Marvin Rettenmaier. Jason Koon Wins Main Event for Largest Career Cash Jason Koon beat Seth Davies heads-up to win the $5,250 main event and the $1,000,000 first place prize. “I feel fantastic. I mean, it’s a great result, it’s a lot of money, and I got to play heads-up with my buddy. It’s a special moment,” said Koon. The million dollar score is the first seven-figure of Koon’s career and is his second straight first place finish following his win in a $25,000 Bellagio High Roller in July. The main event had 847 entrants which put the event 153 players short of making the $5,000,000 guarantee. The final table also included Tim Burt, Joe Serock, Ryan Fair and Zo Karim. Final Table Payouts Jason Koon - $1,000,000
 Seth Davies - $575,000 
Tim Burt - $310,000 
Roman Valerstein - $220,000 
Tom Midena - $180,000
 Joe Serock - $150,000
 Paul Balzano - $125,000
 Ryan Fair - $100,000
 Zo Karim - $75,000 Marvin Rettenmaier Tops Star-Studded High Roller Final Table Marvin Rettenmaier topped the 105 entries in the $25,500 High Roller event to win $787,497. He beat out Daniel Colman for the title, the $787,497 first place prize money and his first tournament win since September 2013. Colman started heads-up play with a 4-3 lead over Rettenmaier but over the three hours of heads-up play the pair traded the lead back and forth. The final hand saw all the money go in pre-flop with Colman holding [poker card="ks"][poker card="9s"] and dominating Rettenmaier’s [poker card="jd"][poker card="9d"]. The [k4][poker card="4d"][poker card="2d"] flop however changed everything and the turn and river failed to give Colman a full house, eliminating him in second place and giving Rettenmaier the title. "I ran very well on the final table. Three-handed I get queens to jacks and aces to kings,' Rettenmaier said afterwards. The event had 105 entries for a total prize pool of $2,625,000. As is the case with most high roller events, the final table was filled with some of the best players in the world. Along with Rettenmaier and Colman, Nick Petrangelo, Daniel Strelitz, Barry Hutter, Rainer Kempe and Andjelko Andrejevic also found final table success. High Roller Final Table Payouts Marvin Rettenmaier - $787,497 Daniel Colman - $485,625 Ray Qartomy - $291,375 Nick Petrangelo - $190,313 Daniel Strelitz - $147,000 Barry Hutter - $120,750 Rainer Kempe - $102,375 Andjelko Andrejevic - $89,250 Francisco Picasso - $78,750 Ivey Leaguer Bradley Snider Wins $2,650 No Limit Hold’em Event Bradley Snider is a 21-year-old Princeton student who hasn’t had much time to play poker over the last few years as he’s been focused on his education. He made up for lost time on Tuesday taking down the $2,650 No Limit Hold’em event for $246,400. Not only is that the largest cash of his career, it’s his only career cash. Snider only began playing the game recently and learned a lot of from a now very familiar source. "Me and my brother started watching poker on Twitch," said Snider. "And that’s what really got us into it. I wanted to play more and learn the game and study." Snider beat out a final table that included Irish pro Dermot Blain, Koray Aldemir, Dan Heimiller and November Niner Jerry Wong but he’s not ready to declare himself a pro just yet. 'I think poker will continue to just be a serious hobby for me," he said. "I really enjoy playing casually and thinking about the game. And this will let me play a lot more poker in the future.' Final Table Payouts Bradley Snider - $246,400 Dermot Blain - $147,800 Nicholas Immekus - $88,400 Koray Aldemir - $73,900 Jeffrey Chang - $61,600 Alex Wilson - $49,300 Dan Heimiller - $37,000 James Gilbert - $30,800 Jerry Wong - $25,575 Ruslan Dykshteyn Beats Phillip Hui for $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Win It might have had the smallest buy-in of the Big 4 but that didn’t matter to Florida local Rusland Dykshteyn. He beat out Phillip Hui after the two agreed to a nearly even chop for the first live win of his career. Dykshteyn is originally from New York City but moved to Florida after a rude introduction to the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open a few years ago. “I have a little home field advantage. I moved out here three years ago from New York,” said Dykshteyn. “I came here to play the $5,000 event three years ago. Put seven bullets into it but didn’t make Day 2. I had a couple of friends here and just decided to change my scenery.” Aaron Massey and Daniel Buzgon also made the final table, earning $22,700 and $15,500 respectively. Final Table Payouts Ruslan Dykshteyn - $151,100 Phillip Hui - $87,600

Guy Smith - $37,800

  5. [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
  6. South Florida has been the hot spot for poker over the past few weeks with the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open attracting some of the best players in the world and an impressive amount of local players. All of that action wrapped up on Tuesday with the Big 4 final tables all streamed live on Twitch thanks to Poker Night in America. Brandon Eisen Takes Down Championship Event Brandon Eisen topped the 914 entries in the $5,250 Championship event to win $771,444 and his first live win since taking down a $200 Deep Stack Extravaganza event in February 2013.

Along with Hinkle, the final table included Jake Schwartz, Brandon Hall and Michael Esposito. The win earned Foxen $208,452 - just $3,852 more than he earned for winning the same event last August. In 2018 alone, Foxen has now picked up four wins and just over $2.3 million in earnings. $2,650 No Limit Hold’em Final Table Payouts Alex Foxen – $208,452 Blair Hinkle – $146,042 Jake Schwartz – $93,892 Tom Nguyen – $62,936 Brandon Hall – $48,404 Matthew Kuba – $40,115 Rick Alvarado – $33,668 Matt O’Donnell – $27,242 Michael Esposito – $20,846 Marc MacDonnell Picks Up Second Career Title Marc MacDonnell beat Joey Coudon heads-up to win the smallest buy-in event of the Big 4, the $1,100 No Limit Hold’em event, earning $119,465 in the process.

There were 123 entries in the event and among the 16 players who made it into the money were Ryan Riess, Darren Elias, Chris Hunichen, David Peters and Tom Marchese. Schindler’s win is his seventh of 2018 and moved him within past Sam Trickett for 17th on poker’s all-time earnings list. Deeb meanwhile crossed the $3,000,000 earnings mark for the year after bringing home $534,989 for his second-place result. $25,500 High Roller Final Table Payouts Jake Schindler – $800,758 Shaun Deeb – $534,989 Tom Marchese – $371,183 Omar Zazay – $265,311 Mark Fisher – $195,570 Barry Hutter – $148,769 Ory Hen – $116,942 Paul Hofer – $95,110

  8. August is the time to go 'Big' or go home. The 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open takes place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL and will run from August 1-13 with a 27-event schedule culminating in the return of their four featured tournaments, dubbed ‘The Big 4’. The schedule gets off to a fast start with a multi-flight $1 million guaranteed $600 DeepStack and is followed by a full slate of tournaments with wide-ranging variants and buy-ins that will attract every level of player, leading up to the starting dates of The Big 4. The Big 4 Since 2015, the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open has hosted The Big 4, four individual tournaments that all play down to a final table together so they can be live-streamed on the same day at the same time. This year the Big 4 include: $5,250 SHRPO Championship - $3 million guarantee $2,650 NLHE - $1 million guarantee $1,100 NLHE - $500,000 guarantee $25,500 High Rollers - $2 million guarantee. Since 2013, SHRPO has been a favorite destination for poker pros from all over the world. Headed into their fifth year of the The Big 4 promotion, organizers are looking forward to making 2019 the biggest Big 4 yet with all eyes on the $5,250 Main Event. $5,250 SHRPO Championship In 2014, the year before SHRPO Championship was a part of The Big 4, Daniel Colman took down the $5,300 tournament for $1.44 million. The $5 million guaranteed SHRPO Championship event drew 907 runners in 2015 and the big story was that Colman returned to the final table, looking to go back-to-back and defend his 2014 SHRPO Championship title. In the end Colman couldn’t get there, falling in third place for $310,000 as Omar Zazay went on to win the $1,000,000 first-place prize for a career-high score. Pennsylvania’s Paul Volpe also made an appearance at this final table, but he ended up hitting the rail in eighth place for $100,000. Even though registration dipped in 2016, the tournament still held a $5 million guarantee. That meant there was a healthy overlay for the field of top-tier players who made the trip. Ryan Fair and Joe Serock joined regular high rollers Seth Davies and Jason Koon at the final table where Koon ended up taking home the title and his very first seven-figure score of $1 million. In 2017, the tournament reduced the guarantee to $3 million when Australia’s Martin Kozlov picked up the largest cash of his career by winning the $754,083 first-place prize. Matt Berkey finished in third place this year while Aaron Mermelstein, Adam Levy, and Joe Kuether all also had a seat at the final table. Then, just last year, Brandon Eisen denied Jeremy Ausmus the title in 2018, taking home $771,444 for the win. Familiar faces Joseph Cheong, Jared Griener and Ryan D’Angelo also made the final table in what was the largest SHRPO Championship field in The Big 4 era with 914 runners. Big Buy-In, Big Moments The Big 4 have had plenty of standout performances outside of the Main Event over the years. As one might expect, the $25K High Roller has always been flush with big-name pros looking to take home six-figure scores. In 2015, Florida’s All-Time Money List leader, Jason Mercier, took down the $25K High Roller for over $517K in his own backyard, surviving an all-star final table that included runner-up Ian O’Hara, Sean Winter, Ankush Mandavia, Barry Hutter, David ‘Doc’ Sands, and Phil Laak. One year later, Marvin Rettenmaier denied Daniel Colman another SHRPO title by taking first place and over $787K. John Andress took home the High Roller title in 2017 and then in 2018, Jake Schindler topped the 123 player field for a score of over $800K after defeating Shaun Deeb heads up. Another amazing Big 4 feat has been the performance of the GPI #1-ranked player Alex Foxen who, in 2017 took down the $2,650 NLHE for $204,600 and then followed that up by defending his title in that even in 2018 for another $208,452. All the action from the 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open begins on August 1 with all four of the Big 4 set to be live-streamed on August 13. 2019 SHRPO Schedule of Events DATE EVENT # EVENT TIME BUY-IN 8/1 1A Deep Stack NLH Flight A (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 11:00 AM $600 8/1 1B Deep Stack NLH Flight B (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 6:00 PM $600 8/2 1C Deep Stack NLH Flight C (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 11:00 AM $600 8/2 1D Deep Stack NLH Flight D (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 6:00 PM $600 8/3 1E Deep Stack NLH Flight E (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 11:00 AM $600 8/3 1F Deep Stack NLH Flight F (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 6:00 PM $600 8/4 1 Day 2 1:00 PM -- 8/1 2 Omaha 8 Or Better (Re-Entry) - $30,000 GTD - One Day Event 12:00 PM $400 8/2 3 H.O.R.S.E.

  9. Almost one year to the day since his last recorded live tournament cash, Jason Mercier topped a field of 41 entries in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $50,000 Super High Roller to win $715,860. Mercier defeated Franklin Fok in heads-up play, with Fok taking home a second-place prize o $457,355. On the final hand, Mercier held the [poker card="5c"][poker card="5d"] against Fok’s [poker card="As"][poker card="Js"]. The money went in preflop with Mercier shoving all in after Fok limped the button. Fok called but couldn’t hit on the [poker card="Td"][poker card="6h"][poker card="2h"][poker card="3s"][poker card="8h"] run out, according to reports from SHRPO.com. SHRPO $50,000 Super High Roller Results 1st: Jason Mercier - $715,860 2nd: Franklin Fok - $457,355 3rd: Tom Boivin - $288,330 4th: Giuseppe Iadisernia - $198,850 5th: Manig Loeser - $139,195 6th: Sam Sweilem - $109,370 7th: Albert Daher - $79,540 For Mercier, the score was the seventh largest of his live tournament career and pushed him to more than $19.5 million in career live tournament earnings. Mercier took a commanding chip lead into the final day of the tournament with seven players left. He had 2.635 million in chips to start and the next closest stack was Giuseppe Iadisernia's 550,000. Mercier busted Dan Shak on the bubble the night before to win a huge pot to secure such a large lead. On the hand against Shak, Mercier had opened to 40,000 from the cutoff position with the blinds at 10,000-20,000 with a 20,000 big blind ante. Shak reraised to 150,000 out of the small blind, and Mercier called to see the [poker card="As"][poker card="4h"][poker card="2c"] flop. Shak moved all in for 740,000. Mercier thought about the decision for a little bit, then called with the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Jh"]. Shak had the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Kc"]. No help for Shak came on the turn or river and he was out the door in eighth place on the money bubble. At the final table, Mercier eliminated Albert Daher in seventh and Manig Loeser in fifth en route to getting heads up with Fok. Fok busted Tom Boivin in third place, but he only entered heads-up play with 645,000 in chips to Mercier’s 4.48 million. Mercier made quick work of Fok from there, finishing off heads-up play in less than 10 hands.
  10. The Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open 'Big 4' crowned its winners on Tuesday. Sean Winter won the SHRPO $5,250 Championship, Keith Brennan won the $1,100 No Limit Hold’em, Jessica Dawley won the $2,650 No Limit Hold’em, and Shaun Deeb won the $25,500 High Roller. Together, the four events awarded more than $8.3 million in prize money. Sean Winter Wins $5,250 Championship for $698,175 [caption id="attachment_626088" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Sean Winter captures first place in the SHRPO $5,250 Championship for $698,175 (photo: SHRPO)[/caption] Buy-In: $5,250 Entries: 809 Prize Pool: $3,923,650 Sean Winter topped the 809-entry field in the SHRPO $5,250 Championship, scoring a first-place prize of $698,175. The score was the fourth largest of Winter’s career and pushed him to more than $13.6 million in live tournament earnings. 1st: Sean Winter - $698,175 2nd: Shalom Elharrar - $487,695 3rd: Jerry Robinson - $314,230 4th: Jordan Fisch – $232,065 5th: Giuliano Lentini - $176,350 6th: Ben Farrell - $139,705 7th: Joseph Cheong - $115,300 8th: Brandon Carl - $91,365 9th: Nick Schwarmann - $69,800 Winter entered the final table in the $5,250 Championship with a chip-leading stack of 9.49 million. At the time, Joseph Cheong’s stack of 6.595 million was the next largest, but even he was 48 big blinds behind. Cheong lost a big pot early when Jordan Fisch doubled through him, and then Nick Schwarmann also doubled through Cheong shortly thereafter. Despite that double by Schwarmann, he was the first player eliminated at the final table, and it was Winter who sent him packing. Winter then knocked out Brandon Carl in eighth place before Cheong’s run came to an end in seventh. On Cheong’s elimination, Fisch had raised from the under-the-gun position to 275,000 with the blinds at 75,000-125,000 with a 125,000 big blind ante. Cheong, who had just lost the majority of his chips when Giuliano Lentini doubled through him, called all in for 150,000 from the next seat. Shalom Elharrar then called from the cutoff seat. Fisch and Elharrar checked down the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Jh"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"][poker card="4d"] board before all three players revealed their holdings. Fisch had the [poker card="Td"][poker card="Tc"], Elharrar showed the [poker card="Js"][poker card="Th"], and Cheong turned up the [poker card="Ts"][poker card="9s"]. With his pair of jacks, Elharrar scooped the pot and Cheong was eliminated. After Ben Farrell went out sixth and Lentini busted fifth, Winter took out Fisch in fourth place with pocket tens holding up against the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="8c"]. Three-handed play only saw the continuation of the Sean Winter show. He continued to increase his lead and then busted Jerry Robinson in third place, again holding pocket tens. Robinson had the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Kc"] and couldn’t win the flip. Heads-up play lasted nearly 50 hands as Elharrar battled hard. Ultimately, Winter and his enormous stack of chips were too much to overcome. On the final hand, Winter’s [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Td"] dominated Elharrar’s [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Th"] and that was all she wrote. For the win, Winter took home $698,175. Elharrar scored $487,695 for his second-place result. Keith Brennan Wins $1,100 No Limit Hold’em for $104,035 [caption id="attachment_626087" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Ireland's Keith Brennan won the $1,100 No Limit Hold'em for $104,035 (photo: SHRPO)[/caption] Buy-In: $1,100 Entries: 537 Prize Pool: $537,000 Keith Brennan from Ashbourne, Ireland, served up a victory in the $1,100 No Limit Hold’em event to the tune of $104,035. He topped a field of 537 entries to get the win and secured the largest payday of his live tournament career. 1st: Keith Brennan - $104,035 2nd: Cangir Elcin - $72,285 3rd: John Michalak - $46,400 4th: Gary Leibovitz - $32,550 5th: Jack Duong - $24,935 6th: Mario De La Puente - $20,540 7th: Brock Wilson - $17,030 8th: Corey Hochman - $13,545 9th: David Castranovas - $10,350 This tournament looked as though it was going to end up with Cangir Elcin in the winner’s circle. He was the big chip leader with five players left after knocking out Mario De La Puente in sixth place. Brennan was able to get a boost to his stack by busting Jack Duong in fifth place, but he still had less than half the chips that Elcin did. Elcin continued to dominate by busting Gary Leibovitz in fourth place, then he won a big one off of John Michalak to gather even more chips. But then, Brennan doubled through him to take a chunk of chips back. Eventually, Brennan moved into the lead and began to pull away. Although Elcin knocked out Michalak in third place, he was still down more than 4-1 in chips to Brennan entering heads-up play. Brennan made quick work of his opponent, Elcin, but it wasn’t without a dramatic final hand. The money went in with Brennan holding the [poker card="As"][poker card="Jd"] to Elcin’s [poker card="9c"][poker card="9d"]. The flop was [poker card="Jc"][poker card="9s"][poker card="3c"] to give Elcin a set of nines, but the [poker card="Ac"] on the turn gave Brennan some outs going to the river. The river was the [poker card="Ad"], just what Brennan needed, and his full house topped Elcin’s to give him the victory. Jessica Dawley Wins $2,650 No Limit Hold’em for $204,610 [caption id="attachment_626086" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] Jessica Dawley took first place in the $2,650 No Limit Hold'em, defeating Faraz Jaka in heads-up play to win $204,610 (photo: SHRPO)[/caption] Buy-In: $2,650 Entries: 385 Prize Pool: $1,000,000 Jessica Dawley earned the largest score of her live tournament career when she topped the 385-entry field in the SHRPO $2,650 No Limit Hold’em event. Dawley defeated Faraz Jaka in heads-up play and took home $204,610. 1st: Jessica Dawley - $204,610 2nd: Faraz Jaka - $142,880 3rd: Nicholas Zautra - $91,690 4th: Philip Rigby - $61,090 5th: Raj Vohra - $46,890 6th: Justin Zaki - $38,790 7th: Jordan Cristos - $32,490 8th: Jake Daniels - $26,240 9th: Thai Ha - $20,460 En route to victory, Dawley knocked out Jake Daniels in eighth place and Raj Vohra in fifth place, but it was the elimination of Vohra that could’ve changed a lot had Dawley not come from behind in miraculous fashion. Vohra was all in with the [poker card="As"][poker card="Ah"] to Dawley’s [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Jh"]. Vohra was in a dominating position to double and he looked pretty good on the [poker card="9c"][poker card="7h"][poker card="2h"] flop and [poker card="Th"] turn. But, the [poker card="8s"] on the river gave Dawley a straight to the jack and sent Vohra to the rail. Dawley was ever so slightly behind Jaka entering heads-up play, and Jaka even extended his lead to start the duel. Dawley fought back and eventually doubled into the lead. That’s where she stayed for the remainder of the match. On the final hand, Dawley’s [poker card="Ac"][poker card="2h"] beat Jaka’s [poker card="8h"][poker card="8c"] to win it all. Dawley flopped an ace after the money went in preflop and held up from there. Shaun Deeb Wins $25,500 High Roller for $778,300 [caption id="attachment_626089" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Shaun Deeb earned $778,300 for winning the $25,500 High Roller (photo: SHRPO)[/caption] Buy-In: $25,500 Entries: 115 Prize Pool: $2,840,500 Shaun Deeb proved once again he is one of the greatest tournament players we’ve ever seen, winning the SHRPO $25,500 High Roller for $778,300. Deeb topped a field of 115 entries to take top honors and improve to more than $7.5 million in career live tournament winnings. 1st: Shaun Deeb - $778,300 2nd: Albert Daher - $545,375 3rd: Olivier Busquet - $340,860 4th: Andy Andrejevic - $235,760 5th: TK Miles - $150,545 6th: Josh Ray - $110,780 7th: Jake Schwartz - $90,895 8th: Matthew Wantman - $76,695 Deeb came into the final day second in chips behind Andy Andrejevic, but he quickly moved his way into the top spot bu busting Matthew Wantman in eighth place. Deeb would then bust Josh Ray in sixth place and TK Miles in fifth place. Andrejevic went out in fourth, falling to the hands of Olivier Busquet when his dominated [poker card="Ac"][poker card="4d"] couldn’t come from behind against the [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qh"]. Although Busquet and Albert Daher both doubled through Deeb during three-handed play, Deeb kept pushing forward and eventually knocked out Busquet in third place to set up the heads-up match with Daher. In blind-versus-blind action, Deeb limped in from the small blind and Busquet checked from the big blind. The dealer revealed the [poker card="8c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="2s"] flop and Deeb check-raised Busquet’s bet of 125,000 to 400,000. Busquet called, the dealer placed the [poker card="Jd"] on the board on the turn, and Deeb moved all in. Busquet made a big call for his tournament life and he had the [poker card="8s"][poker card="6d"]. Deeb had the [poker card="Qs"][poker card="8d"]. The river was the [poker card="2c"] and Busquet was eliminated. Deeb entered heads-up play against Daher with 7.39 million in chips to Daher’s 4.12 million. He increased his lead to start and then finished Daher off with the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="Qh"] to Daher’s pocket sevens.
