Event 2 of the 2022 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown was a $400 Limit Omaha 8 (Single Re-Entry). A field of 116 entries generated a prize pool of $38,860, easily surpassing the $30,000 guarantee. Taking it down outright was Michael Bozeman, earning $11,330 for his showing.

“I drove in this morning from up near Daytona, about a four-hour drive, and it was too early to check into the hotel, so came straight here and got in during Level 2,” Bozeman told us afterward. “I texted my buddies who I’m sharing the room with that I will be at the hotel at 3 a.m. after I win this thing for $10,000.”

Bozeman had called his shot and he came through, as he wrapped things up at about 2 a.m. for more than $11,000.

“It was one of those tournaments where just everything went well. I didn’t get a ton of hands, even though it probably looked like I was. I won it with aces, but I only had aces three times. Some key bluffs worked, and it’s hard to do that in this game, made some good folds, and yeah, it just went well. Was never in any real danger.”

For Bozeman, this marked his sixth cash at the Seminole Hard Rock and his first final table, having narrowly missed out on final tables at the 2022 Lucky Hearts series in the Omaha 8/Stud 8 event with a 12th-place finish, and also at the 2018 Rock ‘N’ Roll series with a 10th-place showing in a Big O tournament.
