Hunter Cichy

Matt Waxman limped in early position and Zach Donovan followed that up with a shove from the small blind. Hunter Cichy called all in for less from the big and Waxman folded.

Donovan: 7c7s
Cichy: ahqd

They were off to the races but Cichy could not pair his overs on the 9h4d3h flop. He picked up a flush draw on the 4h turn but went out in 19th place after the jd river.

One more knock out will trigger the two-table redraw.

Zach Donovan – 2,600,000 (108 bb)
Hunter Cichy – Eliminated in 20th place ($10,330)

Before Cichy was eliminated, Ruslan Dykshteyn was eliminated in 21st for $10,330.

Stephen Karp three-bet shipped for his last 360,000 after Jason Young opened. The rest of the table and Young called.

Karp: adqc
Young: ah7h

Karp was in a good shape to double up and the 4d4c3c flop was clean. The 3s turn added ten chop outs to the equation but it was the 7d river that sent the pot to Young.

After a dip to his stack doubling up Chad Eveslage, Young is moving back to the top of the counts.

Jason Young – 2,600,000 (108 bb)
Steven Karp – Eliminated in 22nd place ($8,708)

Amato ran into a monster and a cooler and the adtc8sqc8c run out ended his Main Event.

Turbo: Michael Newman Defeats Kenneth Frey for First Ring

2019 February WSOP Circuit
Seminole Casino Coconut  Creek
Event 14
$400 No Limit Hold’em Turbo (Re-Entry)
Entries: 117
Prize Pool: $38,610
February 17, 2019

Michael Newman

Event 14 was the last chance for many players to earn a WSOP Circuit ring this series. There were still some around in the Main Event but most had to take their shot in the $400 Turbo on Sunday afternoon. When it was all settled, Seminole Hard Rock Poker regular Michael Newman walked away with his first career WSOPC title.

“I’ve won some big events, but I’ve never won a ring,” Newman said later.

Among Newman’s accomplishments, the top was conquering an incredibly talented final table in 2016 to win the Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘N’ Roll” Poker Open Championship for nearly $350,000. He followed that up with a huge SHR Hollywood Ultimate Re-Entry title a few weeks ago for another $183,000 to kick off his 2019 run.

While this win was for less money, Newman was still very happy to walk away with his first piece of poker jewelry.

The last ring event on the series drew 117 entries to the face-paced tournament to create a prize pool worth $38,610 with the last 12 players earning some money. Newman earned $11,581 for his day’s work along with his first WSOP Circuit ring.

1st: Michael Newman – $11,581 + WSOP Circuit ring

The Main Event reached the last three tables in pretty big fashion. Jason Young and Mark Dube battled earlier and it went bigger. Before the blinds went up, Young opened to 35,000 and Dube three-bet to 100,000. Young put in a fourth bet to 310,000 and Dube shipped for ~1,500,000.

Young quickly called and his aces were huge against Dube’s tens. The board ran clean, Dube was a shocking exit in 28th place, and Young moved into the clear lead with 3,450,000.

Jason Young stacks up over 2 million

We lost another handful of players after the dinner break and the Main Event is approaching the three-table redraw. While others were dropping, two of the biggest stacks went to battle.

With the board reading qhjstd9h, Jason Young checked in the big blind and Mark Dube bet 240,000. Young thought for a second, called the bet, and checked the 5c river. Dube checked behind and Young quickly tabled kc9d for the king-high straight.

Jason Young’s stack awaits his return
