2022 Lucky Hearts Poker Open Event 4 Champion Aron Dermer

Event 4 of the 2022 Lucky Hearts Poker Open was the $400 H.O.R.S.E. (Re-Entry). A field of 101 entries generated a prize pool of $33,835. A four-handed deal took place and as the chip leader, Aron Dermer was the official winner.

For Dermer, this was his third SHRP trophy, having previously won the H.O.R.S.E. event at the 2019 Showdown and the Charity Series of Poker/Jeff Conine Celebrity Poker Classic at the 2017 SHRPO.

“The red trophy is nice,” commented Dermer afterward. “Have the green (from Showdown) and black (from SHRPO) already. My wife likes the trophies. I have to keep winning them so she lets me keep playing.”
