LHPO in Review

The 2020 Seminole Lucky Hearts Poker Open featured 29 tournaments with more than $5,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools. The series opened with the $1,000,000 guaranteed WPTDeepStacks Hollywood event and finished with the $2,000,000 guaranteed WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship with a $25K High Roller in the middle.

Brian Altman made World Poker Tour history when he won the LHPO Championship on the final day. He is the first in tour history to win the same tournament twice, this one to go along with his WPT LHPO Championship title from 2015.

In addition to that record, this is also Altman’s sixth career SHRP title putting him in a tie with Raminder Singh for second behind David Prociak.

Raminder Singh captured his sixth title earlier in the series in the $600 Six-Max tournament. Edwards Muñiz had a good opening weekend of the series; he bagged early in the WPTDeepStacks, won $400 Big O tournament on his day off, then shipped the WPTDeepStacks title.

Jonathan Jaffe shipped the $25K High Roller title with Brian Altman on the rail, the Jaffe returned the favor when Altman won the Championship. Then posed after swapping the good luck hoodies.

Scott Roberts Closes Out the 2020 LHPO After Winning “The Craziest Final Table”

The 2020 Lucky Hearts Poker Open came to an end late Wednesday night with the conclusion of Event #27 ($150 No-Limit Hold’em), a two-day event that attracted 619 entries.

After a roller-coaster of a final table, the final four players agreed to an ICM deal, and chipleader Scott Roberts was declared the winner, receiving the title and the trophy.

There were a lot of dramatic all-in situations, and Roberts seemed to be involved in all of them.

“It was the craziest final table I think I’ve ever been at,” said Roberts. “My jacks against queens flopping quads. My nines against sixes and ace-king, and he hit his king, but then I hit my nine on the river to triple up. And then I hit my queen on the river against something else. The river has been good to me tonight.”

To be fair, Roberts was also on the losing end of a bad beat, getting it all in with pocket kings as the big stack against ace-king and pocket eights — there were two aces on the flop and an eight on the turn. That knocked Roberts down to 11 big blinds, but he may have forgotten about that one because two hands later is when he tripled up with pocket nines after spiking a nine on the river.

“It feels great,” said Roberts. “It’s finally nice to win a big one here at the Seminole Hard Rock.”
