Event 24 of the 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open was a $150 Buy-In No-Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) with a guaranteed prize pool of $50,000. Across two starting flights, a field of 555 entries generated a prize pool of $66,600.

From the two Day 1 starting flights, there were 61 players who returned to the poker room for Day 2 action. After nearly nine hours, it was Jennifer Miller who emerged victoriously.

Miller bagged a hefty chip lead after Day 1 and rode that to the final table where she journeyed down a tumultuous road to victory, one that denied Gabriel Ramos of his sixth SHRP trophy. Miller began the heads-up battle as the shorter stack and turned down a deal, opting to play it out. For her outright win, Miller earned $17,965.
