Just over seven hours later, the 258-entry starting field in Event 12, tonight’s 6pm $130 No Limit Hold’em tournament, is down to 10 and seated at one table. Headlining the action is Rafael Indriago Salazar who’s in the midst of his fourth final table appearance of the series and going for a stranglehold on the Coco Poker Open leaderboard. Indriago won Event 4 before finishing runner up in Event 7 and 8th in Event 8. He holds 274,000 chips at the 10-handed final table and is in position to make a charge for a second title.

The bubble burst roughly an hour ago sending the final 27 players in tonight’s $130 buy-in event into the money. In the time since, a total of nine hit the rail leaving the tournament with 18 remaining. Here’s a look at the bustouts to this point:
19th: Marc Zeitlin – $270 20th: Jill Rukeyser – $270 21st: Mark Carattini – $270 22nd: Albert Efremoff – $270 23rd: David Poces – $270 24th: Steve Raeman – $270 25th: Monroe Collins – $270 26th: Marc Levy – $270 27th: James Salmon – $270
With two tables left, it’s a pair of familiar faces that headlines the action. Florida pro John Holley and Coco Poker Open points leader Rafael Indriago found their way to the late stages of play and are seated next to eachother. Holley is looking to add to an impressive poker resume that includes nearly $1,500,000 in career earnings while Indriago eyes the top spot on the points leaderboard.
We will provide another update when the event hits the 10-handed final table.

The Event 12 field is close to crossing into triple-digit territory at the start of the second level, a nice pace early in the tournament.
We found a few familiar faces in the game early including Abbey Daniels making her first appearance. She has a victory here from 2012 when she took down a WPT Regional event but Daniel’s biggest cash came when she finished fourth in the 2011 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown televised final table.
Coco Poker Open Leaderboard front-runner Rafael Indriago is also back looking to extend his lead. He already owns one title along with a second and eight place finish this series. He’s joined SHRP regular Alan Dobrow on his left who is still looking for his first SHRP title.
