WPT Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship
Two players looking for their first major title went toe-to-toe for the Lucky Hearts Championship and WPT title, and after more than 100 heads up hands, James Calderaro (Venice) defeated Shannon Shorr (Birmingham, AL).
The tournament ended on three straight all-ins and began when Calderaro cracked pocket Aces with top two pairs the left Shorr with four big blinds.
“It feels awesome,” said Calderaro who had been a runner-up twice, including at a WPT final table. “I thought I might be jinxed with second place, so getting over the hump is incredible.”
