A month and a half ago, Hassan Tahsildar won Event #26 of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Poker Open ($400 Seniors Event), and this evening he added his second Seminole Hard Rock trophy by winning Event #20 of the Lucky Hearts Poker Open, the $400 Deep Stack Turbo event.

“It feels great,” said Tahsildar. “I was getting cards, and I think I took advantage of two players that were short-stacked.”

There were 61 entries, and the final eight finished in the money. The event started at 5:00 pm, and with 15-minute levels, Tahsildar won the event shortly after Day 1B of the main event ended (around 11:30 pm).

When asked how he feels about the turbo structure, Tahsildar said, “I like more of a standard game, but sometimes a turbo is nice to get going.”
