Nagui Yassa

In addition to the lion’s share of a prize pool that’s now better than $1,100,000, the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek Circuit Main Event Champion is set to earn a gold ring and a seat in the Global Casino Championship. The season-ending GCC is slated to boast a $10,000 buy-in and players will compete for a minimum prize pool of $1,000,000. For many, the extra $10,000 value is quite enticing, but for Nagui Yass, it’s old hat.

Yassa, a regular at any Seminole Hard Rock series, earned Casino Champion honors during Hollywood’s Circuit. Like the Main Event Champion, the Casino Champion earns entry in the prestigious, unique event. Yassa earned the honors following four cashes and two final table appearances. With a GCC seat already locked, Yassa is in action here in Coconut Creek looking for a big score, but is down to about half starting stack.
