Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year point leader Angel Vu got all-in on the river with the board showing Th3d2h7h8d.  Unfortunately for Angel, Frank Navin (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) held 6h5h for the turned flush.

Angel mucked her hand and headed out.  Frank, a self-professed “PLO degenerate,” chipped up to about 220k.

We’ll be seeing a lot more of Angel during this series since she’s chasing points to try to stay atop the POY leaderboard.  At the end of this series, the POY will receive a prize package valued at over $30,000 that features entries and casino-based incentives for Seminole Hard Rock Poker’s most prestigious poker events throughout the following year including:
