October Anniversary Special Champion Ricardo Eyzaguirre

The October Anniversary Special drew 259 entries over two starting days and generated a prize pool of $251,230, more than doubling the $100,000 guarantee. 33 players returned on Day 2 already in the money and in the end, it was Orlando native Ricardo Eyzaguirre who emerged victoriously.

A deal between the final three players took place and as the chip leader, Eyzaguirre was the official champion of the October Anniversary Special!

“During the break, I studied a lot and tried to stay on top of the game,” Eyzaguirre said after the win.

“I pick and choose where I want to go and you just have to be careful. I’ve been to a few places so far, including Seminole Hard Rock Tampa and here. The safety measures have been really good. Covid has been a crazy thing that just happened out of nowhere, so we all just have to adjust. Keep your mask on, use your sanitizer, and do whatever you can to stay healthy.”
