2021 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Event 7 Champion T.K. Miles

Event 7 of the 2021 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open was a $200 Big Stack No Limit Hold’em. There were six starting flights across two days, drawing 2,056 entries and generating a prize pool of $328,960, more than doubling the $150,000 guarantee. Emerging victorious was T.K. Miles, winning outright for $51,560.

“Not bad for $200,” said Miles after the win.

Miles bagged a hefty stack in his starting flight and was 2nd overall of 260 returning players on Day 2. He maintained his standing near or at the top of the chip counts throughout the day, seizing the chip lead with three tables remaining and only giving it up briefly while at the final table.

The Tallahassee native is one of the most accomplished professional poker players in Florida. He ranks 20th on the Hendon Mob poker database for most tournament winnings for players born in Florida, and with his victory tonight he eclipsed the $4 million mark in live career tournament winnings.
