Coconut Creek, Fla. (January 24, 2016) — Andres Verona won Event 2 of the Coco Poker Showdown at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek Sunday night. Verona, 27, bested a field of 112 entries in the $80 no limit hold’em deep stack turbo bounty tournament. He owned the chip lead three-handed and went down as the tournament’s champion following an even chop with Jim Newcomb and Genachte Daniel. Verona and Newcomb pocketed $964 while Daniel, the short stack at the time, won $963

“It feels great,” Verona said. “I came here today wanting to ship it. I didn’t care about the money. I was here to ship and that’s what happened.”

Verona’s number one railbird was Kaitlin Sims. “Poker’s dynamic duo”, as Sims described them, made their way to Coconut Creek to play in Event 1, the $100,000 guaranteed series opener. Verona fired two bullets to no avail. Sims, meanwhile, made it to Day 2 on one entry. While Sims was in the process of running deep in Event 1, Verona was building a stack in Event 2. Sims busted 32nd and headed straight to his rail. A mere couple hours later, Verona claimed victory and put an exclamation point on the pair’s trip to Coconut Creek.

Verona is a 27-year-old amateur from Miami.

Event 2 was the second of nine numbered events on the Coco Poker Showdown schedule. The 11-day series runs now through Sunday, January 31st with Event 6, a $350 buy-in $250,000 guaranteed tournament, and the Main Event, an $1,100 buy-in $100,000 guaranteed tournament, headlining the schedule.

Today’s 12 p.m. $80 no limit hold’em tournament isn’t just a no limit hold’em tournament. It isn’t just a no limit hold’em deep stack tournament, either.
