2022 Showdown Event 12 Champion Enreko Fracassi

Event 12 of the 2022 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown was a $400 Eight-Max No-Limit Hold’em (Freeze-Out). A field of 165 entries generated a prize pool of $55,275, nearly doubling the $30,000 guarantee. The final table was a lengthy one, lasting more than four hours before Enreko Fracassi emerged victoriously, outlasting the rest for a first-place prize of $14,490.

“It was a great final table,” said Fracassi afterward. “We were three-handed for quite a while. Cameron (Storto) had a big chip lead and I was really short, and I just grinded back into it. It was a good time.”

The three-handed battle which Fracassi referenced saw each player hold the chip leader at one point, with six double-ups taking place among the three players to constantly swing the chip counts. In the end, however, Fracassi was the last man standing.

The score caps off an impressive March for Fracassi, who is fresh off of a sixth-place finish for $16,740 at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa in their $200,000 guaranteed multi-flight event.
