2024 LHPO in Review

Raminder Singh hoists the LHPO Championship trophy (that thing is not light)

We kicked off the new year with the 2024 Lucky Hearts Poker Open series, which featured 52 trophy events over 13 days with nearly $4.5 million in guaranteed prize money.

Events: 52
Entries: 12,412
Guarantees: $4,480,000
Prize Pools: $11,158,855

A lot of money was paid out, but our players made all of our tournaments a huge success. They gave us plenty of stories, starting with our headliner, the LHPO Championship.

The $3,500 buy-in tournament featured a $2,000,000 guarantee with two starting flights and a lot of travelers in town for the games and good weather and took a seat next to our local regulars.

Buy-in: $3,500
Entries: 1,188
Guarantee: $2,000,000
Prize Pool: $3,801,600

This tournament created one of the most talented Championship final tables in our history and had everything you could want. WSOP bracelets and High Roller monsters and cash game experts and one local legend.

Raminder Singh began the series in sole position of the top spot on our all-time major wins list. His ten titles paced the field, but early on, Yuval Bronshtein and Michael Newman captured their tenth to tie him.

But Singh made a statement in the Championship; he captured the LHPO title, earned $486,353 and stands alone once again on our leaderboard.

It was a masterful performance, and he is more than worthy of returning to the top.

Other notable wins include a race for history on the last day of the series. Phil Hui, John Fauver, and Frederic all won two LHPO trophies in the last two weeks and were the last three players in the $1,100 Eight-Game Mix tournament.

Moss outlasted his two tough opponents and became only the fourth player in our history to win three titles in the same series.

2012 Showdown – Julio Fernandez
2012 RRPO – Atanael Thomas
2023 RRPO – Matt Bretzfield
2024 LHPO – Frederic Moss

Frederic Moss booked 1, 2, and 3 LHPO wins

Singh’s brief time tied on the win list began when Yuval Bronshtein caught him after he won the $1,100 Pot-Limit Omaha title and Michael Newman won the $200 Big Stack.

Interesting note: Singh finished second in the $400 Turbo while Newman won the Big Stack. So Singh was one bad beat away from having 12 wins by the end of the series.

Raminder Singh – 11 wins
Michael Newman – 10 wins
Yuval Bronshtein – 10 wins
David Shmuel – 9 wins
John Holley – 8 wins
Matt Bretzfield – 8 wins
Four tied – 7 wins

Kevin MacDonald bagged in Flight A of the $400 Deep Stack opening event, won the $400 Turbo NLH that night, then returned for the Deep Stack and won that four days later.

Alex Foxen won the $25,500 High Roller NLH, Matt Glantz won the $10,000 High Roller PLO, and Upeshka De Silva won the $10,000 Deep Stack NLH.

With 52 trophy events, there was no end to the great stories and those are just a few. You can check the full list of results and updates linked below.

We can never thank you enough for your support and for making each series a huge success; our players are the best.

We look forward to seeing you at the Escalator Series in a few days and the 2024 Poker Showdown from April 3 through April 23!

Raminder Singh Shows His Lion’s Will to Win on the Path to the Trophy in the 2024 Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship

2024 Lucky Hearts Poker Open
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
Hollywood, Florida
Event 34
$3,500 LHPO Championship (Re-Entry)
Entries:  1,188
Prize Pool:  $3,801,600
January 18 – 23, 2024

One of South Florida’s own has taken home the top prize in the Championship at the Lucky Hearts Poker Open. Raminder Singh added to his robust trophy case by capturing the giant guitar pick trophy, along with the largest cash of his poker career worth $486,353. That puts his total career earnings close to $3 million. He topped a field of 1,188 entries to win the title, including a talented group of players on the final day of the tournament that concluded when the final three agreed to a chop when Singh had secured the chip lead against Dan Martin (second place), and Jesse Lonis (third place).

We caught up with Singh after he had the trophy in hand  for an interview about his victory, and here is what he had to say right after the win. “It feels really great, I don’t really ever play any big tournaments that go into the week. I need to have a pretty fine schedule to skip all my work and play, so normally I don’t play these. But this time my friends, they convinced me to play in this. This was the time to play. I’ve been in good form, I’ve been playing well, I couldn’t miss this tournament,” said Singh.

He can often be found playing in tournaments with his Team Singh shirt, and he showed a lion’s will down the homestretch of the tournament in his determination to win the trophy, even when chops had been previously offered. “Team Singh, the lion on my shirt was basically invented by my nephews. Harry, Jason, and Sandy, and like 20 of their friends and others that are in the network that call me uncle, so I’m the universal uncle. They are all my nephews. Even locally here, a lot of the players I play against – It’s in the family. Singh means lion actually in our language,” said Singh.

When you have over 90 tournament wins on your poker resume it’s probably time to get a trophy case, and this is the victory that’s got him thinking that way. “With this prestigious win, to be honest with you I may really have to think about a trophy case with this giant trophy. This is my No. 1 win. This is by far my largest score,” said Singh.

He continued, “I have a lot of respect for the players here, and the staff. Amazing fields, and it’s amazing the way they organize these tournaments and these series. It’s local here, so it’s so good, like a 45-minute drive for me. I really enjoy it here, Hard Rock is my favorite place to play poker.”

We followed with a question about how all those previous journeys to the end of a tournament helped him finish the job today, and he replied with this. “Your experience does help, in every field of your life, not just poker. This is the first time I’ve played until Day 4 in a tournament, but I have played the WSOP main a couple of times. This was really an interesting structure where the blind levels moved from 90 minutes and then to 60 at the final table, and we were very deep. I’m a businessman at my core, so i strongly believe in horses for courses. When you play a turbo it’s a different minefield, when you play a $3,500 it’s a different level of players and a different structure, so you have to adjust your patience and that animal instinct that’s inside that’s trying to really, really be aggressive. You’ve got to control it more, and tame it back a little. You’ve got to sit back and read people more,” said Singh.

If you spend any amount of time watching Singh play at a poker table you can quickly tell he is the conversation captain anywhere he is seated. We asked him about that outgoing personality, and here is how Singh responded, “To be honest I just like to talk as humans. I’m a businessman as I said. I was very introverted growing up, but I got some very good mentors in my life that helped me develop my people skills, and I enjoy life. If you love to talk it’s not so much about the hands or the strategy, it’s more about life.”

Our table-side chat finished with trying to settle the score if Singh still considers himself an amateur after so much success in closing out poker tournaments, but it doesn’t sound like he’s about to give that moniker up anytime soon. “An amateur is an amateur is an amateur for life [laughs]. So I would love to keep that title of a true poker amateur unless I win the WSOP main event one day. If I win that tournament then I will retire that title, and take whatever title comes with that,” said Singh.

The victory is also Singh’s 11th SHRP major series trophy, retaking the lead atop the all-time winners list.
