Event 8 Champion Phil Rigby
Event 8 Champion Phil Rigby

Phil Rigby has a couple of big SHRPO final tables on his resume, finishing ninth in a Big 4 event in 2017, and fourth in another Big 4 event last year. But Monday he finally won his first Seminole Hard Rock trophy, outlasting a field of 155 to win the Seniors event.

“I’ve been close a few times,” said Rigby. “It’s been overdue.”

Three-handed play lasted a very long time, and there was talk of a deal at one point, but Rigby shut it down because he wasn’t the chipleader, and wouldn’t get the win — and the trophy.

“The trophy was more important for me in a tournament like this,” said Rigby. “It’s not huge, life-changing money, so I wanted the chance to win the trophy.”

Three-handed play continued for a surprisingly long time, and the final three players eventually agreed to a deal. Since Rigby had the chip lead this time, he was declared the winner, receiving both the title and the trophy.

And not just any trophy — a Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood trophy.

“I love this place. They do a great job.” said Rigby. “I live in Belize predominantly, but I come here for every series. Everything they’ve put on has been great over the years, and it just gets better and better and better.”

The final three players return from break to begin Level 22, with increased blinds of 10,000-20,000 with a 20,000 ante. Here are their official chip counts from the break:

Seat 1.  Bruce Gans  –  575,000  (29 bb)

Yvonne McQuillan

About halfway thru the level, Phil Rigby had taken the lead with more than a million in chips, and he raised from the button to 20,000. Yvonne McQuillan moved all in from the big blind for 195,000, and Rigby thought for a while before he called with 3h3c.

McQuillan turned over Ks10h, and she needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 10s8d5h7d4d, and McQuillan paired her ten on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Yvonne McQuillan  –  420,000  (21 bb)
Phil Rigby  –  830,000  (42 bb)

Bruce Gans

They played thru the end of that level and into Level 23 (15K-25K) before agreeing to a three-way ICM deal. These were the official chip counts at that point.

1.  Phil Rigby  –  845,000  (34 bb)
2.  Bruce Gans  –  575,000  (23 bb)
3.  Yvonne McQuillan  –  440,000  (18 bb)

Greg Spinder

With the board showing Kc9s6s4s on the turn, Greg Spinder checked the big blind, Yvonne McQuillan went all in from the button for more than 500K, and Spinder tanked for a while before he called all in for about 98,000 with Js9c for a pair of nines with a jack-high flush draw.

But McQuillan turned over Qs7s for a queen-high flush, and Spinder was drawing dead.

The meaningless river card was the 9h, giving Spinder a little salt in the wound with trip nines. “We would have gotten it all in anyway,” said Spinder as he got up to leave. McQuillan won the pot with her flush to eliminate Spinder in fourth place.

Yvonne McQuillan  –  875,000  (55 bb)
Greg Spinder  –  Eliminated in 4th Place  ($3,294)

With three players remaining, the average chip stack is about 620,000 (39 big blinds), and the next player to be eliminated will earn $5,415.

Seniors: Harvey Bruce Freedman – 5th Place ($2,543)

Harvey Bruce Freedman moved all in from the small blind for about 160,000, and Bruce Gans called from the big blind with Ad10c.

Freedman turned over Jh4s, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qs7s2dKd3s, and Gans won the pot with his ace to eliminate Freedman in fifth place.

Bruce Gans  –  425,000  (27 bb)
Harvey Bruce Freedman  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($2,543)

With four players remaining, the average chip stack is about 465,000 (29 big blinds), and the next player to be eliminated will earn $3,294.
