Mike Graffeo

Fresh off a major tournament victory and $290,000 score in the Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open WPTDeepStacks Main Event is Boca Raton’s Mike Graffeo. Graffeo bested a tough field in Hollywood officially earning $290,687 along with a $3,000 WPTDeepStacks package and $5,250 seat in the Seminole Hard Rock Poke Open Championship this August.

The Brooklyn native is no stranger to the felt, but took a hiatus for a few years to spend more time with his children. He recently relocated to South Florida and hopes to play more events now that he’s within close proximity to plenty of options. The victory in Hollywood was the first tournament he’d played in two months and he wasted little time getting back in the action following the win.

He’s among the early field here in Coconut Creek and looks to earn additional points in the SHRP Player of the Year race.
