Event 8 is about ready to roll out in the meeting room and a nice, quick-paced tournament for those already bagged up in Event 6.

The tournament plays a six-max format with a $360 buy-in and single re-entry option if they bust their stack before registration closes.

They will start off with 10,000 stacks and the tournament will run 30-minute levels. Late registration is open until the start of Level 9 at 4:30pm but players only have that one re-entry. There is a dinner break schedule for 6:30pm and the one-day trophy event will continue until we have a champion.

Cards go in the air at noon and it should be a fast, fun tournament.

Two Trophies and Two Starting Flights on Day 6 of RRPO

It was a busy day in the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood tournament room on Monday evening.

There were two players who took home some hardware and two starting flights that played to completion. Francois Zayas won the $360 ultimate re-entry event in a seven-way chop. Zayas took home $107,973 for his efforts.

The other trophy won on Monday was by David Shmuel in the $360 pot limit Omaha 8-or-better event. He chopped heads-up with Jeff Duvall. Shmuel won $7,152 and the trophy.

While the first multi-flight re-entry event of the series wrapped up, the second kicked off. There were two flights of the $570 no-limit hold’em re-entry event. Day 1A kicked off at 11 a.m. and it drew 145 players, while Day 1B drew 122 players several hours later. 28 players made it through 1A and 24 survived Day 1B.

Blake Vita holds the chip lead through two flights. He bagged the Day 1A chip lead with 296,000.

A preview of Tuesday’s schedule will be published in the morning.

Marc Schiller

After 14 levels of play, Day 1B of the $570 no limit hold’em re-entry event has come to an end with Marc Shiller leading the final 24 players that made it through the flight.

Schiller bagged the chip lead by a wide margin. He finished with 262,500 and Alex Ivan, who finished second in chips, bagged 214,500.

Fabio Baduy was the only other player above 200,000 in chips. Several Hard Rock regulars made it through the second starting flight. Michael Newman (114,500), Dylan Drazen (110,500), Daren Stabinski (63,500) and James Salmon (62,000) all made it through as well.

The 24 players who made it through this flight join the 28 Day 1A survivors for Day 2 on Wednesday. There are two more flights to play out on Tuesday before the field size and prize pool are finalized.

Event 6 Day 1B: Michael Newman Doubles Up

Level 14: 1,200/2,400 with a 400 ante
Players Remaining: 27 of 122

On a flop of Jc6s4c, the player in the cutoff bet 12,000 and Michael Newman moved all in on the button for 55,300. The cutoff quickly called and the cards were tabled.

Newman showed 9c6c, giving him a pair and a flush draw, up against the cutoff’s JhTh.

The turn was the 3c, which gave Newman a flush and left his opponent drawing dead to the meaningless Js river card. Newman doubles up about halfway through the level.

Michael Newman – 135,000

Event 6 Day 1B: Alex Ivan Wins Massive Pot to Eliminate Ben Scrogins

Alex Ivan

Ben Scrogins was in middle position and got into a preflop battle with Alex Ivan on the button. Scrogins gets all in for about 80,000 and Ivan had him covered.

Scrogins shows KhKs and was in the lead against Ivan’s AdQs.

“No ace, please,” said Scrogins before the dealer started to run out the board.

The flop was 9d6d3d and Ivan picked up equity with the nut flush draw.

“No diamond,” added Scrogins.

The turn was the 2s, keeping Scrogins in the lead, but the 5d came on the river to eliminate Scrogins and shoot Ivan up the chip counts.

Alex Ivan – 200,000
Ben Scrogins – Eliminated

Danny Alvarez

On the turn, with a board of 8c8h6c9c, the player in the big blind checked and Danny Alvarez moved all in on the button for effectively a pot sized bet, with the big blind having about 40,000 remaining.

The big blind thought for a couple minutes before calling. Alvarez quickly tabled Jc2c, giving him a flush.

“I’m dead,” said the big blind. “Unless the seven of clubs comes on the river.”

The big blind tabled 9h5c. He had a few more outs than he gave himself credit for as a nine or an eight would give him a full house, but the Kc came on the river and Alvarez won the pot.

Danny Alvarez – 130,000
