Prize Pool: $1,065,600
August 9, 2022
Event 43 of the 2022 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open was the $10,000 Deep Stack No-Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry). The perennial SHRPO big buy-in closing event drew 111 entries, generating a prize pool of $1,065,600, more than doubling the guarantee.
Emerging victorious was Ed Sebesta, winning outright for $311,915.
“My best result before recently had been for $47,000,” said Sebesta afterward. “Then two months ago I won a high roller at the Aria for $120,000, and now this. I’m definitely on a heater.”
Sebesta was quick to mention how well he ran, but also how making some bold plays were necessary.
“Mostly, I got lucky,” admitted Sebesta, “but I pulled a few plays that most of these guys probably didn’t expect I would make. It was a combination of both. Then when I got heads up, I was on a roll. I had a big stack, applied pressure, and it worked out.”
Sebesta resides in Richmond, Texas, is retired, and plays poker as a hobby. He gives all of his winnings to The Congregation of Holy Cross in honor of his son, who went to the University of Notre Dame and became a Priest, before tragically passing away after a long battle with a brain tumor.
