Michael Newman, defending RRPO Pot Limit Omaha champ

Pot Limit Omaha tournaments are one of the favorite events on any SHRP schedule and today we will crown our next PLO champ. SHRP regular Michael Newman took the crown last year and we expect to see him back to defend this afternoon.

The tournament gives players 10,000 starting stacks and the tournament will run 30-minute levels from start to finish. Late registration is available until the start of Level 9 at 4:30pm and they can expect a dinner break around 6:30pm. This is another one-day trophy event and they will continue playing down until we award another title.

Action will get underway at noon and we will keep an eye out for some fast play.

Joey Alegria

Flight E crossed over 150 entries after 30 minutes of play to put the prize pool over $425,000 and well within the reach of the $500,000 Guarantee. That should hit sometime this afternoon before registration closes at 5:45pm.

The big opening tournament is drawing players from around the state and we found a Tampa regular in today’s field. Joey Alegria hails from the west coast of the state and made his way east from the Tampa area. He picked up two huge scores last year with two final tables in the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Winter Poker Open including an eighth-place finish in the Championship. Alegria also picked up a nice payout by making the final two tables of the 2017 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $1,100 Big 4 event.

Hard Rock Regulars Excel on Second Day of Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open

The second day of the 2017 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood mirrored the same schedule as the first. A trophy was won and two more flights of the Ultimate re-entry wrapped up.

Two of the regulars that show up to the various tournament series at the Hollywood Hard Rock throughout the year enjoyed a profitable day on Thursday.

Scott Zakheim, who claimed he has played at the Casino since the day it opened, won his first Hard Rock trophy in the $300 seniors no limit hold’em. He won $6,262 in a three-way deal.

Former SHRP Player of the Year, David Prociak, took the overall chip lead in the ultimate re-entry event. He bagged up a monster stack of 579,000 in Day 1C to take the overall chip lead.

On Friday, there is another trophy to be won ($360 pot-limit Omaha) and another two flights of the re-entry. A schedule preview will be posted in the morning.

Simon Tremblay

Hand-for-hand play only last a single hand on the fourth flight of the Ultimate Re-Entry event, but it had a lasting impact on the flight. Not only did the last hand of the day burst the money bubble, but it also produced the chip leader.

Simon Tremblay bags up the chip lead for Day 1D thanks to a huge double up on the last hand. His queens held up against deuces and he finished the day with 338,000.

Former SHRP Player of the Year, Ory Hen, also finished near the top of the counts with 226,000. Drew Johnson and Ariel Rosello finished the day and became the 10th and 11th players to double bag the event and earn cash.

Through four flights, there are 1,295 entries, and 117 players with a spot on Day 2. 11 players have bagged multiple times. David Prociak all of the survivors with 579,000.

Complete chip counts from all four flights will be posted shortly.

On the first hand of hand-for-hand play, Simon Tremblay raised to 20,000 on the button and the player in the big blind moved all in. Tremblay calls and was the player at risk for his last 163,000.

The table was shocked that two of the bigger stacks at the table were going at it on the bubble and Tremblay was in good shape to double up with his QsQd against the big blind’s 2h2d.

The board ran out Jh5d3c9sQh and Tremblay doubled up. On the same hand at a neighboring table, one of the shorter stacks busted with Ax9x against his opponent’s pocket aces. The bubble burst and the final 33 players move on to Day 2.

The players have completed play for today and the staff are verifying everybody’s chip stacks. A complete recap will be posted later tonight.

Simon Tremblay – 337,000

 

Event 1 Day 1D: Will Corvino Touches 300,000

Will Corvino

The player on the button got into a preflop confrontation with Will Corvino in the cutoff. The button got all in for about 45,000 against Corvino and the cards were tabled.

Corvino showed KdKh and was in great shape against the button’s Ah6h.

The flop was 7c7h5h, which gave the button an over and the nut flush draw to Corvino’s pocket kings.

“Don’t do it to me this way,” says Corvino after the flop is out.

The turn is the 5c and the river is the 6d. Corvino fades the flush draw and sends a player to the rail. Corvino became the first player to hit the 300,000-chip mark in Day 1D.

Will Corvino – 301,000

Ariel Rosello

A player moved all in from under the gun for 42,000 and Ariel Rosello called from early position. The small blind called as well and any further action would create a side pot between Rosello and the small blind.

The flop was Jh8d2d and the small blind pushed enough forward to put Rosello all in. Rosello quickly called and was all in for his last 27,000.

Rosello showed JdJs, giving him top set, and didn’t have to sweat much between the small blind’s 9d9h and the all in player’s KsQd.

The turn is the 5h, which left both players drawing dead to the Qh river. Rosello drags both the main and the side pot, nearly tripling up in the process. Rosello bagged 39,000 on Day 1B and is looking to bag a bigger stack to take to Day 2, while earning extra cash.

Ariel Rosello – 195,000
