Matty Bretzfield - Event 25 Champion
Matty Bretzfield – Event 25 Champion

“I was long overdue for a trophy at the Hard Rock.”

After a couple of deep runs in previous tournaments here at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, Matty Bretzfield overcame a field of 84 entries to win the final event of the Lucky Hearts Poker Open — $1,100 Big Stack Pot Limit Omaha.

From the Money Bubble to the end of the tournament, Bretzfield held the chip lead most of the way. The final five players agreed to a deal to split the remaining prizepool, and as chipleader, Bretzfield won the title, the trophy, and $15,323.

“It’s 4 am, that’s why I wanted to chop so bad — I’m really tired. But it feels really good, and I’m really happy. I chopped with good people.”

It was a long night for the players at the final table, as it took nearly three hours to drop from 12 players to eight.

Bretzfield has a few victories under his belt, but he really wanted a trophy from Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, especially after finishing 10th in last August’s SHRPO Championship (earning a career-best $62,415), and 11th yesterday in Event #21, $2,500 No Limit Hold’em.

“The trophy means a lot to me. It’s a sense of accomplishment. My mom just moved down here about two months ago, and she’s never seen me win a trophy. She’s just seen the ones I already have. So now I get to go home and bring it to her, and that means a lot to me.”

This is Bretzfield’s first trophy from the Seminole Hard Rock, but he doesn’t plan on it being his last.

“I just started tournament poker seriously back in August. Now I’m on the circuit grinding and it feels great. Living my dream, living in paradise.”
