Lisa Teebagy Wins Her Second SHRP Trophy

Event 7 of the 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open was a $400 Seniors 50+ No-Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry). A field of 184 entries generated a prize pool of $62,560.

A five-handed deal at the final table was reached and it was Lisa Teebagy who was chip leader at the time, officially giving her the victory.

For Teebagy, this marked her second SHRP trophy. A few months ago during the 2019 Showdown series, Teebagy earned top honors in a $150 Big Stack No-Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) after a six-way deal. Today, she was on top of the chip counts with five players remaining and a deal was quickly agreed upon by everybody.

“I can’t explain,” said Teebagy afterward of her wins in consecutive major Seminole Hard Rock Poker Series. “Just a very nice and euphoric feeling. We are blessed to all be able to play this game, and then to rise to the top and take it down…it’s a great feeling.”

Between the Showdown series in April and today, Teebagy also won two nightly tournaments at the Seminole Hard Rock. What has led to her recent string of success?

“I study the game a lot. I talk to friends about the game, play a lot of tournaments, play as often as I can, and also take a break to step away from the game and clear my head, recalibrate and come back fresh.”

Lazaro Rodriguez

Picking up the action after the turn of an 8d7h2d4d board with about 70,000 in the pot, Lazaro Rodriguez checked from the small blind and Joseph Tumminelli checked from the big blind. Lisa Teebagy bet 38,000 from the button and only Rodriguez called.

The river was the 3s, Rodriguez checked, Teebagy bet effectively 75,000-ish and Rodriguez called all in with 7d4c for sevens and fours.
