Dimitri Vorbe
Dimitri Vorbe won the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship in August, 2021, earning $929,365.

After a flop of 8c7s4d with about 25K already in the pot, the player in the big blind bet 15,000, and 2021 SHRPO Champion Dimitri Vorbe moved all in under the gun for 50,000.

The big blind tanked for a long time before he called all in for 45,000 with 10h10d for an overpair.

But Vorbe turned over QsQc, and the big blind needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the Jh, giving the big blind a gutshot straight draw, but the river card was the Ah. Vorbe won the pot with his pocket queens to eliminate his opponent.
