2021 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Event 4 Champion Yuval Bronshtein

Event 4 of the 2021 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open was a $400 Deep Stack Pot Limit Omaha (Single Re-Entry). A field of 133 entries took part in the action and in the end, a heads-up chop was agreed upon between Yuval Bronshtein and Nancy Birnbaum. As the chip leader, Bronshtein was the official Event 4 winner.

For Bronshtein, it’s his third Seminole Hard Rock trophy overall and his second of this series, having won Event 2 just two nights earlier.

“I always feel really confident, especially playing here,” said Bronshtein afterward. “I’ve run really well here.”

Bronshtein moved to South Florida in late 2019 and this marked his third SHRP major victory since then to go along with three runner-up finishes, all in mixed-game tournaments.

“Since I won my WSOP bracelet (in the summer of 2019), I’ve got this tremendous confidence whenever I get to a final table. I don’t feel any stress or pressure. I just feel like I can always play my game, I feel like I’m going to play better than everyone, I feel like I’m going to run better than everyone, and get cards when I need them in the crucial spots.”

With plenty more mixed-game tournaments on the SHRPO schedule, Bronshtein is looking forward to keeping up his winning ways.

“It’s just the beginning of the series and I hope to keep it going.”

Lexy Gavin – 3rd Place

Lexy Gavin raised to 100,000 from the small blind, Yuval Bronshtein three-bet to 300,000 from the big blind, Gavin four-bet all in for about 500,000 and Bronshtein called.

Gavin: KsQs10h4h
Bronshtein:AhJh10d10c

The flop came down 9h7h2h, giving both flushes but giving Bronshtein the nuts. The 9s turn and 7c river were inconsequential and Gavin was out in third place for $4,795.

Yuval Bronshtein – 1,380,000 (35 bb)
Lexy Gavin – Eliminated in 3rd Place ($4,795)

Brad Speight – 4th Place

Nancy Birnbaum raised from under the gun, Brad Speight three-bet pot from the button, Birnbaum four-bet the pot and Speight called all in for 590,000.

Birnbaum: AsAdJh10h
Speight: KdKs9s8h

The flop came KcJd10c, vaulting Speight into the lead with a set of kings. The 8s kept him ahead, but the river was the Qh to give Birnbaum an ace-high straight to win the pot.

The stacks were counted down and they both had exactly 590,000, ending Speight’s run in fourth place.

Nancy Birnbaum – 1,210,000 (40 bb)
Brad Speight – Eliminated in 4th Place ($2,940)
