6 players in the hunt for the $ 1,446,710 first-place prize - Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open
The Main Event of the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open (SHRPO) has actually attracted 1,499 players and after a few days of play in the poker room of Seminole Hard Rock, in Hollywood (Florida), the $ 5,300 Event only sees 6 survivors in contention for the title along with the $ 1,446,710 first-place prize. Despite an overlay of $ 2.5 million, organizers have kept the SHRPO $ 10,000,000 guaranteed Main Event, nearly $ 4.6 million of which will be granted to the finalists. Indeed, the final table of the 2014 SHRPO promises to be hotly contested since it has three formidable stars of poker, all securing comfortable places compared to the other contenders. 2014 Card Player Player of the Year contenders, Mike Leah and Dan Colman are well ahead of the battle with 15,455,000 and 10,230,000 chips respectively.
Joe Kuether will enter the final table with 7,090,000 chips, followed by Martin Hanowski (5.21 million), Shawn Cunix (4.87 million) and the 2010 November Niner John Dolan (2,045,000 chips). The final table was set when Blake Bohn was eliminated in seventh place. Despite all this, the bubble boy cashed $ 249,438 as a prize of consolation. Other players like Brian Hawkins (8th, $ 199,550) and Curt Kohlberg (11th, $ 99,775) were also ousted a few places away from the final table. The six finalists are guaranteed to leave with a minimum gain of $ 324,269 while the top two players in this poker tournament will earn a seven-figure prize: $ 1,446,710 for the champion and $ 1,047,638 for the runner-up.
