(Hollywood, FL) — Event 13 of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Rock ‘n’ Roll Poker Open concluded Monday night in Hollywood, Florida. The $1,100 buy-in turbo tournament drew 81 hopefuls looking for a quick score to go along with the token SHRP guitar trophy. It took Sweden’s Peter Eichhardt less than seven hours to maneuver his way through tough competition and nab the event’s $28,350 top prize — a payday that translated into a $4,200 hourly rate.

The event narrowed to the final table just a few hours after play began. World Series of Poker November Niner Jerry Wong, bracelet winner Jean “Prince” Gaspard, WPT champion Chris Moorman and 2015 WPTDeepStacks-Immokalee winner Filipp Khavin were among those standing between Eichhardt and a title. Thanks to swift levels and a hot run of cards, Eichhardt dusted them off without much resistance. It was Khavin who lasted the longest, finishing just shy of another title and earning $15,390 for his runner-up placements.

Eichhardt was born in Sweden but now resides in Ireland. In addition to a WSOP victory he claimed this summer, Eichhardt has eight other major tournament wins on his resume. Despite career earnings of nearly $1,400,000, he says his primary profession is that of a writer.

With the conclusion of Event 13, just two tournaments remain on the 2016 RRPO schedule. Event 12 is a six-flight, $150 buy-in, $100,000 guarantee. The last three flights take place tomorrow at 11am, 3pm and 7pm. Event 14 gets cards in the air at noon tomorrow and is one-day $300 HORSE event.
