2021 Lucky Hearts Poker Open
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
$400 Limit Omaha 8 (Freeze-Out)
Prize Pool: $41,205
January 14, 2021
Event 2 of the 2021 Lucky Hearts Poker Open was a $400 Limit Omaha 8 (Freeze-Out). A field of 123 players came to play, creating the second-biggest Limit Omaha 8 tournament in any Seminole Hard Rock Poker major series.
After nearly 13 hours of play, four players remained and a deal was reached after some discussion. The chip leader at the time was Yuval Bronshtein, making him the official Event 2 winner.
“It’s pretty cool,” Bronshtein said afterward. “Last year at Lucky Hearts I was heads-up in this same tournament with a good friend of mine and we even chopped it, but he was chip leader and got the trophy. So it’s pretty cool to get it this time.”
With more than $1.6 million in tournament winnings according to the Hendon Mob and a World Series of Poker Bracelet (2019 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball) to his name, Bronshtein is widely respected in mixed-game tournament circles. He moved to South Florida in 2019 and this marked his fifth mixed-game tournament cash in the majors since then.
“I’ll be back for the H.O.R.S.E. tomorrow, and the plan is to go back-to-back.”
