Event 17: Barcelona to Hollywood

$5,300 Championship NLH $10 Million Guaranteed (Re-Entry)
Level 2: 50/100

Francois-Charles Scapula might have the most interesting story about getting to the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship, bubbling one tournament to get an entry into another.

Scapula was playing in the huge EPT Barcelona event just a few days ago and found himself one of five players who were eliminated on the money bubble. Tournament staff chopped up the bottom four spots to split among the five players but there was the matter of awarding a seat into the SHRPO Main Event.

The five of them played a quick Sit & Go and Scapula beat Randall Flowers heads up with win the seat. Flowers is also in the Championship field but he is nowhere near Scapula’s table.
