Robert “Papa Bear” Transue ($14,449) Wins November Big Stack Special

November Big Stack Special
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
Hollywood, Florida
$150 No-Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
$50,000 Guaranteed
Entries: 954
Prize Pool: $114,480
November 18 – 22, 2020

The November Big Stack Special drew 954 entries over six starting flights and generated a prize pool of $114,480, more than doubling the $50,000 guarantee! 121 players returned on Day 2 already in the money and in the end, it was North Lauderdale native Robert Transue who emerged victoriously in a 5-way deal.

Transue is a Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood regular who is known by some as “Papa Bear.” Don’t let kind nature fool you, as his play on the felt is more like a grizzly bear with countless deep runs and cashes in our events. Congratulations again to Papa Bear and all those who came out for the November Big Stack Special!

Next event coming up is this weekend’s $1,100 Buy-in/$100K GTD Holiday Deep Stack Special! Check out the structure sheet by clicking the image below.
