Yuval Bronshtein Wins His Fourth Seminole Hard Rock Trophy, a Year After Winning His First

Yuval Bronshtein
Yuval Bronshtein

After moving to South Florida in 2019, Yuval Bronshtein won his first Seminole Hard Rock trophy at last year’s Lucky Hearts Poker Open, followed by two runner-up finishes over the next two days.

Bronshtein added two more trophies at last summer’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, and one year after winning his first, Bronshtein added his fourth Seminole Hard Rock trophy on Monday night, winning Event #9 ($400 Omaha 8/Stud 8) in a heads-up chop with runner-up Victor Nassif.

All four of Bronshtein’s trophies have come in Omaha, though he doesn’t feel it’s his best game.

“Stud hi-lo,” said Bronshtein. “Definitely. I feel like I’m one of the best players in the world at that game.”

“I love mixed games in general,” said Bronshtein. “I love it when the game changes every orbit. It keeps it interesting. And I like the hi-lo games because there’s a lot to think about, and different players are always better at one of the games than the other, so you have to strategize, and it keeps it interesting and fun.”

Bronshtein is a regular here at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood, so what keeps him coming back?

“I’ve had really good luck here, and I really enjoy playing here,” said Bronshtein. “This is a great venue, with a great staff. I can’t really think of a better place to play poker.”

After the elimination of Efthimios Piperakis in third place, Yuval Bronshtein and Victor Nassif played for a while, with Bronshtein taking the lead.

They seriously discussed a deal at one point with Bronshtein holding an 853,000-to-515,000 lead, but they couldn’t agree to terms.

They played another 15 minutes or so, and with the chip counts effectively unchanged in that time, they agreed to an even chop of the remaining prizepool. These were the final chip counts:

Yuval Bronshtein  –  848,000  (14 BB)
Victor Nassif  –  520,000  (9 BB)

As chipleader, Bronshtein was declared the winner and received the trophy. Here are the final payouts:

Yuval Bronshtein  –  $9,020 + LHPO Trophy
Victor Nassif  –  $9,020

Stay tuned for a recap from this event, which will be posted later tonight.
