The SHRP regular earned the honor with two big scores; a win in the 2019 WPTDeepStacks Hollywood Main Event and he followed that up with a third-place finish in the February 2019 Coco WSOP Circuit Main Event.
Seminole Hard Rock Director of Poker Marketing Tony Burns introduced our Player of the Year and presented him with the trophy.
Young earned a package which includes buy-ins to all Seminole Hard Rock Poker Championship and Main Events in Hollywood, Tampa, and right here in Coconut Creek.

Event 1 was quick to the money and hand-for-hand was not needed. With 33 players remaining and 30 getting paid, Table 11 lost two players in one hand and tournament staff told dealers to stop after their current hand.
At the same time on Table 10, Francis Margaglione moved all in for his last 14,000 and Reid Bleecher called to put him at risk.
Margaglione was in a great spot to double on the bubble but Bleecher nailed the flop. The turn left Margaglione with a single ace for a saving chop but the river sent him out on the money bubble.

Event 1 quickly dropped down to the last four tables after the dinner break and the money bubble in on the very near horizon. The field is only six eliminations from making some money and it should hit before the next level.

The dinner break is complete and it should be no surprise at this point that Martin Ryan is leading the way. The nine-time WSOP Circuit winner is up to 150,500 after 12 levels of play, ten times his starting stack, and he is the front runner with the money bubble on the near horizon.

Tournament staff announced plans for the rest of the evening. The remaining Event 1 players will work through the next two levels of the tournament and will take a 30-minute dinner break at the conclusion of Level 12. They will return after that to play towards the money, final table, and Event 1 champion.
