That’s a wrap at the Seminole Hard Rock! Next up, the May Deep Stack Series May 16th-27th.

Neal Corcoran Closes Series with a Win in Event 24

2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino 
Hollywood, Florida
Event 24
$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
$50,000 Guaranteed
Entries: 645

Prize Pool: $77,400
April 15-17, 2019

Neal Corcoran, Event 24 Champion

As has become tradition, we close out every big series with a smaller buy-in multi-flight tournament geared towards our loyal regulars. The $150 buy-in tournament had a great turnout and local Neal Corcoran walked away with the title for more than $11,000 after a five-way deal.

Event 24 featured a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool and they nearly hit it in the first flight. The two starting sessions combined to put $77,400 up for grabs when registration closed with 645 entries.

We saw 62 of them return for Day 2 in the Poker Room and they quickly made the money before the first break. The tournament was down to the final table bubble by the second break and there on the first hand back.

Corcoran returned for Day 2 with the chip lead, held it most of the day, but traded it with several players including Richard Whitebrook who won this event during the Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open when it had six starting flights.

Multiple SHRP champ Sean Shah hit the rail in sixth place, Corcoran retook the lead, and the five remaining players decided to divide up the remaining prize pool. Corcoran took the title with the chip lead along with $12,155.

This is the third biggest cash for Corcoran after a fifth-place finish in December’s Seminole Turnpike Series and 17th place in the 2016 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open Championship.

Final table results:

1st: Neal Corcoran – $12,155 *
2nd: Richard Leger – $11,377 *
3rd: Jose Ruiz – $10,199 *
4th: Richard Whitebrook – $8,455 *

Daniel Perez open-shoved for 570,000 and it folded to Dave Phillips in the big blind. He called with a slightly bigger stack and they flipped up their cards.

Perez: 7h7s

Phillips needed to win the race to send Perez out but the sevens stayed ahead on the QcTs6h9c6c board. Phillips was left with dust and gone on the next hand
