$3,500 Championship No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
The 2015 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship is down to the final table after three starting flights and five total days. The tournament drew 1,027 entrants but just six players remain with a chance at the title and the $723,008 payout for the win.
Here’s a little look at the final table set to be live streamed by the World Poker Tour.
Seat 1: Brian Altman – 10,330,000 (129 bb)
From Longmeadow, MA with over $200,000 in career tournament earnings including four WSOP, one WPT, and two EPT cashes. This is his first cash at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and he starts second in chips at the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship final table.
Seat 2: Mark Dube – 11,620,000 (145 bb)
From Newburyport, MA with over $700,000 in career tournament earnings including four WSOP Circuit final tables. He’s been among the chip leaders of the Championship each day of the tournament and comes to the final table with more chips than anyone else.
Seat 3: Sanjay Gehi – 2,515,000 (31 bb)
From Atlanta, GA with two tournament results with one of them coming at the 2014 WSOP. Gehi was active over the last two days and sits fourth in chips at the start of the final table.
Seat 4: Kelly Minkin – 3,780,000 (47 bb)
From Phoenix, AZ with $230,000 in career tournament earnings including a win two weeks ago at the Los Angeles Poker Classic and runner-up finish at the 2013 Arizona State Poker Championship for more than $150,000. Minkin is looking to become the first female WPT champion and comes to the final table third in chips.
Seat 5: Greg Rosen – 1,150,000 (14 bb)
From Coral Springs, FL with nearly $80,000 in career earnings including five other final tables at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood. His biggest cash to date came during the 2011 Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open” Deepstack Event. Rosen had the biggest rail on Day 4 but comes to the final table with the shortest stack of the six.
Seat 6: Jon Graham – 1,400,000 (17 bb)
From Longwood, FL and this is just his second career tournament cash, guaranteed to be his biggest. His other cash came from a $1,500 buy-in WSOP event in 2013. Graham’s lack of results doesn’t show in his confidence at the table, he’ll have to use that when he returns to the final table with the second shortest stack.
