Tony Sinishtaj Takes Down WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown; SHR Poker Finale at Final Table

It has been a hectic week of poker at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL. Battling through more than 1200 entries, including one of the biggest money winners in the history of poker, Tony Sinishtaj emerged victorious in the World Poker Tour’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown last night. The Showdown started the day with Dan Colman, ranked third in all-time earnings behind only Daniel Negreanu and Erik Seidel, heading the field with his 9.975 million in chips. Sinishtaj was close behind Colman at the start, holding 9.515 million in chips himself, while Darryll Fish held down the third-place slot with 7.525 million chips.

2017 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Main Event Final Table Set

The home stretch of the World Poker Tour season is in full effect as the final table has been set for the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Main Event, the first of the season-end trifecta along with the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Finale and the WPT Tournament of Champions, all happening in the same week. Leading the six-handed final table is Dan Colman, who, with 9.975 million chips is only slightly ahead of Tony Sinishtaj, who has 9.515 million. To begin Monday’s final table, it looks like a three player race. Along with Colman and Sinishtaj is Darryll Fish, who has 7.525 million. After those three, there is a large gap to the bottom half of the chip counts, with Simeon Naydenov, Robert Mizrachi, and Eric Beller all around 3 million. Colman, from a purely money standpoint, is one of the most successful live tournament players in poker

Matt Affleck Leads after Day Two of 2017 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown

The festival of poker that is the finale of the World Poker Tour’s Season XV schedule has begun in Southeast Florida. Two days are in the books for the 2017 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown, the first event of a trilogy of poker tournaments over the next ten days, with popular poker professional Matt Affleck atop the standings. As expected, the players flocked to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, for the start of the tournament on Friday. The $ 3500 buy in event was a true free-for-all – no limit to re-entry if you got your money to the cage before the start of Level 9 – as the chips, cards and cash were flowing over the tournament floor. By the time that registration had closed for the Showdown, 1207 entries had been received to build a prize pool of $ 3.862 million. 151

World Poker Tour Begins Dash to End Season XV with WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown

Looking to finish off the Season XV schedule with a bang, the World Poker Tour will be setting up shop in the sunny state of Florida for the next 10 days. Kicking off the trio of events to finish this year’s WPT roster of events will be tomorrow’s start of the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. Now in its second year, the change for the WPT to playing its final events at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, seems to have worked out well. When it was held last year, the WPT scheduled three events – a $ 3500 buy in tournament (the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown), a $ 10,000 tournament (the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Finale) and a $ 15,000 restricted access event (the inaugural WPT Tournament of Champions) – that were all conducted on the grounds in Hollywood.

Justin Young Defeats Garrett Greer, Wins WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown

After the oddity of beginning the day with a 10-handed final table, Justin Young exorcised the demons of an earlier World Poker Tour final table loss in defeating Garrett Greer to emerge victorious in the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown in Hollywood, FL, last night. Instead of having the official six-handed WPT final table to start the festivities on Wednesday, ten players came back for action. Hyoung Chae was atop the mountain with his 6.225 million in chips, but Tim Reilly, Sam Soverel, Matt Haugen and Ben Tarzia were all within two million chips. Young and Greer were in the bottom half of the table alongside the player that many eyes were on, Cate Hall, who had the chance to take over the WPT Player of the Year lead with a third place finish or higher and the opportunity to become the first woman to win an open WPT
