Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
$560 No Limit Hold’em
Prize Pool: $98,500
December 30, 2017
The final event of the 2017 Fun in the Sun Poker Open took place on Saturday. The $560 No Limit Hold’em Main Event drew 197 entries and generated a prize pool of $98,500, nearly doubling the $50,000 guarantee. When all was said and done, Bill Farnan emerged the victor after a heads-up deal was reached.
When the final table of 10 players was reached, Farnan was on top of the chip counts. However, he lost a crucial hand with nine players remaining to become the short stack. From there, Farnan turned just more than one big blind into a chip leading stack once again. When heads-up play was reached, a deal was immediately agreed upon and Farnan was officially the winner.
Residing in Jupiter, FL, the 57-year-old Farnan now has nearly $100,000 in career tournament earnings.
