2022 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Event 35 Champion Raminder Singh

Event 35 of the 2022 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown was a $150 Big Stack No-Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry). The tournament drew 215 entries, creating a prize pool of $25,800 to easily surpass the guarantee.

A four-way deal was reached at the final table and Raminder Singh was the chip leader, making him the official winner for his record-setting eighth SHRP major series trophy, passing David Prociak and Gabe Ramos.

“It feels great,” said Singh afterward. “For my children, it motivates them. When I win in poker, they do exceedingly well in their respective sports. My daughter is into ice skating, and my son is into swimming. So they win their trophies, and that’s the motivational factor for them. It feels great from that angle as well.”

The win tonight also gives Singh a trophy in each of the four SHRP major series.

Here are Singh’s eight Seminole Hard Rock Poker major series wins:
