Ryan Hughes

After a 15-hour day of poker, the final three players opted to bag up chips and come back on Thursday to play down to a winner.

Ryan Hughes holds a slight chip lead over Michael Tureniec and Scott Stewart. They will return to blinds of 125,000/250,000 and a 25,000 ante with a guaranteed cash of at least $63,507, with the eventual champion taking home $143,324.

They reached the final table around 10:30 p.m., but after four and a half hours of play and 19 levels of play since the 12 p.m. start, the final three players remained. They will get cards back in the air at 1 p.m. to play down to a winner.

Here is a look at the chip counts:

Seat 1: Ryan Hughes – 7,775,000
Seat 2: Michael Tureniec – 6,575,000
Seat 3: Scott Stewart – 6,050,000

Here are the final table results thus far:

4th: Dennis Rodriguez – $46,996
5th: Ravi Raghavan – $35,799
6th: Zachary Donovan – $28,434
7th: Donald Maloney – $23,529
8th: Chris Cornell – $18,719

That wrapped up Wednesday’s action of the 2018 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. The primary event schedule gets back in the air at noon for the $2,200 eight-max no-limit hold’em.
