Flight E Chip Leader

Flight E of the $500,000 Guarantee is complete with Will Givens (Centennial, Colorado) holding the chip lead and grabbing the $500 end of flight bonus.

Givens finishes with 348k (116 bb) and says he was on top of his game, “I played solid, got paid with my good hands, didn’t pay anybody off, just grinded.”

The 29-year-old from the Denver area is here for the full 21 days of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown and cashed in Event 3 (Black Chip Bounty) with a 15th place finish.

Givens’ been playing a lot of online poker, but is now making the shift to live tournaments. He’s looking forward to Day 2 of this event and the $5 Million Guaranteed Championship Event (April 10-16).
