Bradley Rhodes

(Hollywood, Florida) — It was a fast road to the winner’s circle for Bradley Rhodes in Event 26 of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, a $400 Deep Stack Turbo Re-Entry tournament. Cards went in the air at 11am and it was only seven hours later that Rhodes was a champion. The win earned him $9,500 and came following a heads-up chop with Mohamed Serry. Serry was at a slight chip disadvantage and with blinds and antes soaring, he agreed to an $8,310 payout.

The one-day event drew 108 entries and surpassed the $30,000 guarantee to the tune of a $36,720 prize pool. The top 14 spots finished in the money with Nick Yunis, Steve Karp and Wally Maddah among the notables to score.

Cliff Josephy

Hollywood, Florida — Cliff Josephy is a pot limit Omaha champion following a win in Event 25 of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open. The tournament boasted a $2,650 buy-in and drew 47 entries generating a $113,975 prize pool. For the outright win, Josephy scored $40,520.

Josephy was a dominating online player in the early 2000’s playing under the handle JohnnyBax, but it was his third-place finish 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event when he rose to fame. That score earned him $3,453,035 and he’s added a few million since topping out at just over $7,500,000 in reported live earnings.

The $40,520 Florida score Tuesday was modest for such a decorated player, but it came at the hands of a tough field in this mid-buy-in pot limit Omaha event.
