2015 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) $50,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool
August 17-19th, 2015
Total Entries: 690 Total Prize Pool: $82,800
Event 25 was the last multi-day event on the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open schedule. The small buy-in, big prize pool tournament drew 690 entrants for $150 buy-in and the $50,000 guarantee prize pool. After two starting days and a long final table, Miami resident Yves Fequiere was the last player standing.
Day 2 saw 86 players return with only 45 of them getting a piece of the $82,800 prize pool. The field quickly played down into the money before the second break and it didn’t slow down until the final table.
Those ten players settled in for the long haul and action didn’t pick up until after Robert Chusid went out in 9th place. That set up a quick succession of bustouts until there were just three players remaining.
Fequiere, Joe Pozos, and Ariel Rosello battled it out until Rosello ran his pocket pair into the bigger one of Fequiere. The hand solidified Fequiere’s lead and he was declared champion after a heads up deal with Pozos.
Final Table Results:
1st: Yves Fequiere (Miami, FL) $17,344 2nd: Joe Pozos (Lewes, DE) $17,344 3rd: Ariel Rosello (Hialeah, FL) $8,321 4th: Marshall White (Garner, NC) $5,796 5th: Richard Hembree (Archdale, NC) $4,181 6th: Peter Chin (Hollywood, FL) $3,353 7th: Marc Levy (Boynton Beach, FL) $2,567 8th: Pat Tiller (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) $1,822 9th: Robert Chusid (Sunrise, FL) $1,325
$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) Level 31: 60,000/120,000/20,000 Ante
The elimination of Rosello caused Yves Fequiere and Joe Pozos to quickly shake hands and split the remaining prize money straight down the middle. Fequiere held 4,780,000 versus Pozos’ 3,480,000 to crown him champion.
$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) Level 28: 30,000/60,000/10,000 Ante
Richard Hembree was getting anxious to get somewhere else. He was getting ready to go and moved all-in for ~400,000 from the button and Yves Fequiere quickly called when it got to him in the big blind.
Hembree’s chances decreased on the flop and were gone after the . The river was a pointless and Hembree was eliminated in 5th place for $4,181.
