One player who’s no stranger to Seminole Hard Rock Poker success is Brian Phillis. Phillis, who resides in Tampa, finished runner-up in last year’s $5,250 buy-in Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship. Despite coming up shy of a title, the deep run and impressive performance sent Phillis home with a $575,000 score. Since then, he’s recorded 10 more cashes and eyes another in Coconut Creek.

His stack has taken a hit early, as he’s down to 9,500 from 25,000 starting chips. That’s still good for 63 big blinds though.
