$1,100 Turbo No Limit Hold’em (Freeze-Out)
Level 3: 75/150
As expected, today’s field is full of players coming to town for the Big 4 Championship weekend and the Turbo is turning in a nice star-studded affair.
The big splash comes from the current WSOP Main Event leader on a four-month break. Joe McKeehen holds (almost) all the chips going into the November Nine final table later this year and he dominated the Main Event on that final play down day.
He’s taken his seat in the Turbo, sitting alongside Seminole Hard Rock Poker ambassador Michael Laake.
We also found Esther Taylor-Brady, the better half of the Brady Family Poker Machine with husband Matt Brady. She made the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open final table in January and followed that up with a deep run during this spring’s WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown.
Shawn Cunix is also back and can only improve his finish in last year’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship by a few spots. The three-time WPT final table member finished third in last year’s champion behind Mike Leah and Dan Colman for $747,313 and the biggest cash of his career.
