$2 Million Guaranteed
Level 14: Blinds 1,500/3,000/500 ante

There will be a new Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open” winner as the defending champion was sent to the rail short of the money.

Matt Waxman won this event last November for over $123,000 but was left short after getting involved in a hand against Faraz Jaka and his turned Broadway.

Waxman is hit the rail after moving all-in with the board reading Ac8d4dKs. His opponent called with top two AhKh and Waxman was drawing to a diamond with Ad6d

The river was a blank to send the WSOP and WPT winner out midway through Day 2.
