$500 H.O.R.S.E. (Re-Entry)
Level 13: 3,000/6,000 Limits
Cory Zeidman and George Fountoulakis discuss the numbers, and they reach a mutually agreeable deal. Zeidman gives up $800, and the match is called early.
Fountoulakis seems pleased enough with the result. “Second to Cory Zeidman. Not so bad,” he says aloud. It is a fine finish for the teacher from Palm City, locking up the largest cash of his career and nearly doubling his total previous live earnings. This runner-up effort is worth $5,175.
Zeidman, on the other hand, is a professional poker player from nearby Coral Springs, FL, and he has earned more than $600,000 in live tournaments. Although he spends a fair amount of time playing at Seminole Coconut Creek, this is his first cash in this building. It’s worth $7,425, and it comes with a $2,500 seat to the Coco Poker Open Championship Event, to be held on October 1.
