Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and the Charity Series of Poker Present Jeff Conine’s Celebrity Poker Classic

Hollywood, FL (June 27, 2017) – The Jeff Conine Celebrity Poker Classic is a night of fun and philanthropy, with an opportunity for attendees to take home more than $30,000 in cash and prizes. Best of all, it will improve the lives of children and families coping with serious medical issues.

The 6th annual fundraiser will be held on Monday, Aug. 7, 2017 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to benefit the Conine Clubhouse, a home-away-from-home where families of children under care at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital can stay for free as long as necessary. The charity event kicks off with an exclusive VIP player party taking place prior to the tournament’s 7 p.m. start time located in the ballrooms. Guests will enjoy live music, cocktails, hors d’ oeuvres and a chance to win more than $30,000 in cash and prizes including a $5,250 seat in the SHRPO $3 Million Guarantee Championship. In addition, there will be two $1,000 bonus payouts. The first will go to the chip leader at the time registration closes while the second will go to the player who has the most re-entries.

The event, hosted by “Mr. Marlin,” Jeff Conine, presented by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and the Charity Series of Poker, will feature celebrities playing alongside players of all skill levels for a first prize valued at $10,000. Other prizes include vacation and hotel packages, jewelry, and cash totaling more than $20,000. Live and silent auctions of unique items from the worlds of sport and entertainment will also be part of the action.

A $300 donation to the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation reserves a seat for poker and entry to the VIP reception. Those not playing poker can purchase admission to the reception for $100.

Proceeds benefit the Conine Clubhouse, which has provided free lodging to nearly 11,000 families that have had a child hospitalized at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. More than $100,000 was raised at the 2016 event.

“Cindy and I stayed at the clubhouse when our son was younger and know firsthand the importance of being close to the hospital,” said Conine. “It provides all the amenities of a three-star hotel but, more importantly, gives families a temporary place to call home when they need it most.”

“One of the hardest things for a parent is watching their child suffer and having to leave them alone for even the briefest of moments,” said Susan Renneisen, vice president of community affairs and special events for Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “The Conine Clubhouse is an established and integral part of our community, allowing families the opportunity to stay close to their loved ones in a beautiful and relaxing facility during a difficult time. Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Charity Series of Poker is honored to support the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation’s fundraising efforts through the Jeff Conine Celebrity Poker Classic.”

The Conine Celebrity Poker Classic is presented by the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood) and hosted by the Charity Series of Poker.

Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation – 2

Player participation for poker is limited, with registration taking place at CONINEPOKERCLASSIC.ORG or at the event itself. Event sponsorship, which includes seats in the poker tournament and admission to the VIP Reception, is also available on the website. For more information, contact Craig Cohen at CrCohen@MHS.net or 954-265-7241.

  • 3rd: Haim Toorgeman – $80,653

“[The][Deepest][Stack] is my favorite tournament,” Cooper said. “This tournament I really, really wanted to play. I ran pretty good and I’m happy about that. That’s about all you can do.”

Cooper was born in Kingston, Jamaica but now resides in Pembroke Pines. He is a 35-year-old semi-professional poker player and his win Monday night marks his largest by a margin.

“The harder and harder they get, the more I realize how hard it is to win a tournament because everyone’s good,” Cooper said. “You have to dodge a million bullets and fade a million different things. Every time you do win a tournament, you have to cherish it.”

The $1,650 Deepest Stack ran as part of the 2017 Deep Stack Series. There were seven primary events, three of which were the headliners — Event 1, a $350 buy-in, $150,000 guaranteed “Deep Stack,” Event 3, a $560 buy-in, $150,000 guaranteed “Deeper Stack” and Event 4, the $1,650 buy-in, $300,000 guaranteed “Deepest Stack.” All events boasted the same blind levels (40, 60 and 90 minutes) but were differentiated by their starting stacks — 30,000, 40,000 and 50,000 respectively.

After a stellar turnout in 2016 saw 367 entries pony up $1,650, this year’s event blew doors off the Seminole Hard Rock drawing 465 marking a year-over-year attendance increase of more than 26 percent. The event had no shortage of notables including World Poker Tour Season XV Player of the Year Ben Zamani and recent PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker Main Event champion Harrison Gimbel, both of whom cashed.

With the stars in his wake, it was Cooper who stole the show at the Seminole Hard Rock. He ran hot at the final table eliminating Seminole Hard Rock Tampa ambassador Wally Maddah fifth Matthew Zimmerman fourth before taking the chip lead into three-handed play.

When asked what he’d take away from the event, Cooper was succinct.

“112K,” he said.

The conclusion of the Deepest Stack marks the end of the 2017 Deep Stack Series at Seminole Hard Rock. Next up is the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open August 3-15 followed by the property’s first-ever World Series of Poker Circuit event slated September 21-October 2.

Cooper: jcth
Maddah: td7h

Runout: qh6d4hts3h
