$580 Six-Max NLH (Single Re-Entry) Level 20: 4,000/8,000 with a 1,000 ante | Payouts Players Remaining: 6 of 146
Ari Engel opened to 18,000 and picked up calls from Brandon Miller and Tony Ruberto. Paul Balzano moved all in from the small blind for ~325,000 and Engel went into a short tank. He called all in for less followed by Miller and Ruberto releasing their hands.
Engel needed to dodge the two over cards to stay in the game and did better than that on the flop. Balzano was drawing dead on the flop and began counting out the 125,000 he needed to ship across to Engel.
Ari Engel – 290,000 (36 bb) Paul Balzano – 210,000 (26 bb)

Event 4 of the World Series of Poker Circuit at the Seminole Hard Rock — a $580 buy-in Six-Max Re-Entry tournament — restarts in five short minutes. From 146 starting, just 17 remain and it’s a stacked field in contention for the $20,804 first prize and gold ring.
Alex Rocha leads the way with two of the Circuit’s most prolific players, Ari Engel and Cory Waaland (owning 15 rings between the two of them), still a part of the game.
Others in the action include Scott Stewart and Florida’s own Paul Balzano and Daren Stabinski.
The event is still shy of the money with only 15 players earning a payday. Here’s a look at the payouts:
