We have another large turnout at the close of registration in the Day 1H starting flight of Event 6 ($125 no-limit hold’em – $150,000 guaranteed) at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open. There are 525 players in the flight and 243 of them currently remain in action. That puts the total field size at 2,939 and the prize pool now stands at $293,900.
A player moved all in under the gun for 3,375 preflop and Justin Zaki called right behind him UTG+1. The two players then flipped over their cards.
UTG hit a six to come from behind and double up to survive. Zaki took a small hit and he held 10,000 after the hand.
The $125 starts 9-handed! SWEET!
