2021 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Event 28 Winner Neal Corcoran

Event 28 of the 2021 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open was the $1,100 Deep Stack NLH (Single Re-Entry). A field of 385 entries generated a prize pool of $373,450, nearly quadrupling the $100,000 guarantee.

Nearly 17 hours after the cards were initially put in the air, Neal Corcoran emerged victorious for an outright victory, earning himself $76,020 for his efforts.

“I just ran really good,” said Corcoran afterward. “I got it in ahead a bunch of times and just ran pure. I hadn’t been holding this series so far,  so it’s good to get this one here. I was due for one.”

At one point during a lengthy three-handed battle, Corcoran was down to below five big blinds. However, a double-up through runner-up finisher Courtney Webb and three more double-ups against third-place finisher Scott Baumstein helped propel Corcoran into the lead, en route to his triumph.
