Registration is about to close on the Six-Max event and the doors will lock the doors on the successful tournament. The 227 entries is an impressive number considering players were limited to a single re-entry.
One of those entries went to one of our major champions. The 2017 WPTDeepStacks Immokalee series was postponed due to Hurricane Irma and SHR Hollywood hosted it this past April during the Poker Showdown. Swedish pro Michael Tureniec outlasted the field to take home the WPTDeepStacks Immokalee Main Event for his second SHRP title of the year (along with a Lucky Hearts Poker Open Turbob win).

Once the clock crossed over into the afternoon, players woke up and began getting into the six-max tournament. It moved over 100 entries at that point and Event 11 has matched and surpassed its $50,000 guaranteed prize pool.
And we have more talented players taking a seat including a trio of success women poker grinders.
Carey Pickus has a lot of deep SHRP runs including a second place finish in the RRPO H.O.R.S.E. last November. Jacquelyn Scott won the 2015 WSOP Ladies Championship and Angel Vu won our first ever Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year award back in 2014.
We’re seeing more players walk into the Hard Rock Event Center on a Tuesday morning with many more expected throughout the day. The Six-Max field is growing as we see some familiar faces taking their first shot of the series.
Luis Santoni is a poker legend. A technical fact since Santoni won the first ever Legends of Poker tournament back in 1995. He also owns two SHRP trophies with the last coming in the 2014 RRPO H.O.R.S.E. event.
Jason Young is still waiting for his first SHRP trophy but he has some shiny jewelry. He captured the WSOP $1,500 Shootout bracelet in 2008 and he also owns a Borgata title. Young made the transition from the Northeast to South Florida and making his mark.
