One of those enjoying some time away from the felt is Ebrahim Figueroa.  Ebrahim is from Alt de Bucabarones, Puerto Rico.

He’s retired from the Guardia Nacional de Puerto Rico — the Puerto Rico National Guard, which provides soldiers and airmen to the US Army and Air Force as needed in emergencies or at the request of the US President.

Now that he’s retired, Ebrahim has time to travel and play poker.  He’s planning to play all the events he can here at the Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ’N’ Roll” Poker Open, including the $2 Million Guaranteed Main Event.

He started Day 2 with over 207k, which put him 22nd out of 412 returning players.  At the first break, his stack is still hovering around that figure.
