2022 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida Event 41 $2,200 Five-Card Pot-Limit Omaha (Re-Entry) Entries: 115 Prize Pool: $230,000 August 8-9, 2022
Esther Taylor from Havertown, Pennsylvannia was declared the winner of Event 41 at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open after a chop was decided upon between the final two players. Taylor was the chip leader at the time, so she took home $59,825 along with the guitar pick trophy.
Taylor is a seasoned tournament pro with more than $2 million in career tournament earnings, but this is her first tournament title here at SHRPO. We caught up with her after the final table to get her thoughts about the tournament win.
“I’m happy to win, it’s always nice to win a trophy you know,” said Taylor. She continued, “I can take it home to my daughter, she’ll love it, but she has a billion [softball] trophies,” said Taylor.
“It was tough, it was tough, it wasn’t easy. There were a lot of good players, and the structure was very deep so it took a long time. Every one was kind of grinding, and just re-doubling up,” said Taylor when she was asked about her journey through the final day of the tournament.
When she was asked what keeps bringing her back to the Seminole Hard Rock for tournament series she said, “It’s such a simple flight to get here, although I drove for the first time this time. I love all you guys on the staff, and just how well the tournaments are run – and you know I play a lot of mixed games and this is one of few spots where they offer a lot of different games.”
Congratulations to the champion of Event 41 – Esther Taylor!
