2017 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida Event 12 $150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) Entries: 1,027 Prize Pool: $123,240 November 27-29, 2017
For the second time during the 2017 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open, David Shmuel has earned a Hard Rock trophy. He won Event 7 last week, and has concluded his series by getting the official victory in Event 12.
When the final 10 players redrew for seats at the unofficial final table, the players agreed to an ICM chop. As the overwhelming chip leader, Shmuel was rewarded with his second trophy of the series.
“I guess I was pretty lucky today to win another trophy. In a series to win two trophies, that’s never happened to me. I had a massive chip lead. When the other players asked why I agreed so quickly to a chop, I just said for $150 to get this kind of payout was great for me.”
