Championship Event Day 2: Ernie’s Earning It

$3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship
Level 17: 3,000/6,000/1,000 Ante

Ernest Evans has been been smiling all the way as we near the money here in our championship event.

Evans stormed out of his chair earlier after he’d just dodged a bullet to stay alive and has been keeping a great perspective on his short-stacked chances of winning the tournament. ┬áHe may be getting some of it from another happy friend – Ernie from Sesame Street. Evans’ mother used to call him Ernie and he adopted the Ernie card protector as a reminder.

Evans is now three spots away from having some extra coin to take down to Mr. Hooper’s store as we are at 153 players remaining with 150 cashing this evening.
