WPT Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship

Blinds 250/500 Ante 75

Bill Blanda came in talking a big game and left in much the same way. “I knew I was ahead but that kid is catching everything,” said Blanda after Chance Kornuth hit a flush to knock out Blanda. Kornuth continues to add to his chip lead as he is approaching 200K in chips early in this evening session.

Seth Berger got lucky, and then unlucky, and was eliminated. He got it all in on a 9 high flop with another player holding pocket 10’s.  His foe had pocket Queens. Berger would hit a ten on the turn to take the lead but a Queen on the river would have his opponent jumping out of his chair yelling “Yes baby!” in excitement while a quiet Berger stood up, grabbed his things, and headed out of the tournament area.
