2022 RRPO Event 38 Champion David Shmuel

Event 38 of the 2022 Seminole Hard Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open was a $400 H.O.R.S.E. (Re-Entry), and a field of 91 entries created a prize pool of $30,485. A three-handed deal was reached at the final table, and as the chip leader it was Seminole Hard Rock poker regular David Shmuel who was the official winner for $7,471.

This marked Shmuel’s sixth SHRP major series trophy win, putting him in a tie with Scott Baumstein, and trailing only Raminder Singh (9), Brian Altman (7), Yuval Bronshtein (7), Gabe Ramos (7), Michael Newman (7), and David Prociak (7). The win (along with Shmuel’s 59th-place finish earlier in the day in the Championship event) puts Shmuel past the $600K mark in career live tournament winnings according to the Hendon Mob poker database.

Here are Shmuel’s six Seminole Hard Rock Poker major series wins:

2017 RRPO – $360 Pot-Limit Omaha 8 – $7,152
2017 RRPO – $150 No-Limit Hold’em – $16,573

For Stavrakis, it’s also his second trophy win of the series, having previously won Event 28 a few days ago.

“It’s funny, I told my son I was going to win one of these this series, and he said why stop at one?” said Stavrakis afterward. “This is actually my least favorite game, but I had busted the Omaha event and jumped in this one. It worked out well.”
