It was a pretty passive final few levels but that changed with one quick hand.

Tevy Wellins and Edward Medoff were in the running late to be end of flight chip leader until a huge hand went down on Table 63. It was easy to see something was happening since half the table jumped to their feet.

Three players were all-in pre-flop with AsAh and QcQd already tabled before the 4-seat rolled over KdKc. Muhamet Perati was in a great spot, holding the Aces and more chips than the other two.

The dealer kept it clean with a Jd6c5dJh3h run out to give Perati the pot and a huge chip lead after the first day of Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open” action. When it was all done for the night, Perati put 521,500 in his bag. More than 200,000 better than the 1A Nissin Vankin and a healthy lead over Wellins’ 355,500 from 1B.

There are two more flights for the $500,000 guarantee Event 1 on Friday with 1C kicking off at 11am and 1D at 5pm.
