Level 11: 600/1,200 with a 1,200 ante
Day 1A Entries: 287

Victor Figueroa

Former RRPO champ Victor Figueroa is one of our players moving his stack north as the day moves on. In a recent hand, the board was out and reading Td4c4hTsAd. His opponent bet 12,500 and Figueroa raised to 61,000. That amount was most of Figueroa’s stack with only 3,000 worth of black chips behind.

After a couple of minutes to think it through, his opponent called and Figueroa tabled AcTc for a full house, tens full of aces, and he stacked up more chips.

Victor Figueroa – 145,500 (121 bb)

Main Event: Allen Kessler Eliminated by Jose Reyes

Allen Kessler

Jose Reyes opened to 2,500 from middle position and picked up a caller in the cutoff. Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler moved all in for 11,100 and Reyes put in a big stack of 5K chips to get heads up.

Reyes: 8c8s
Kessler: AsKh

Kessler needed to catch to stay in the game but blanked the 7s6s5h flop. Reyes picked up an open-ended straight draw that got there on the 4d river to leave Kessler drawing dead to the Ah river.

Jose Reyes – 80,000 (80 bb)

Jason Shinbaum

David Prociak opened to 14,000 from middle position and picked up calls from Chad Eveslage in the cutoff, Sam Panzica in the small blind, and Jason Shinbaum in the big.

The flop came 3c3d2d,  Panzica checked, and Shinbaum moved all in for 49,000. Only Prociak came along and Shinbaum was at risk.

Prociak: Td9d
Shinbaum: Jh2c

Shinbaum was ahead with two pair but had a lot of outs to dodge. The Jd turn filled Prociak’s flush and Shinbaum was sent out in ninth place after the Jd river.

Guerrero: AdAc
O’Hara: AcQs

Guerrero woke up to a big blind monster and O’Hara could not miracle a save on the KsKc8cJs8s run out to bust on the bubble.

Level 9: 400/800 with a 800 ante
Day 1A Entries: 273

James Calderaro, WSOP and WPT champ, was a late entrant

Day 1A is midway through Level 9 which means it’s time to start making dinner plans. Once the clock runs out, remaining players will enjoy a one-hour dinner break to partake of the various food options around the property.

James Calderaro jumped into the Main Event before the break and one of the more accomplished players in the field. He has two parts of a potential triple crown; a WSOP bracelet from the 2017 WSOP PLO High Roller and a WPT title from the 2014 WPT Hollywood Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship.

Main Event: Good Start for Neil Blumenfield

Neil Blumenfield

The Day 1A entry count jumped over 250 during the previous level and it’s turning out to be a great start to the Main Event. This is a good pace to hit the $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool tomorrow afternoon and then spin it up.

Neil Blumenfield is enjoying his start to the WSOP Circuit Main Event. The popular local is up to 147,000 at the midpoint of the day and cruising with a fun table. Blumenfield, the former November Niner, has one cash this series so far when he made the last four tables of the Monster Stack.

Coconut Creek WSOP Circuit in Review

Zach Donovan, WSOP Circuit Main Event Champion

The 2019 World Series of Poker Circuit at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek marked the property’s third time to host the global tour. The series ran February 7th through 18th and in that time 14 new gold ring champions were crowned and an entry into the season-ending Global Casino Championship was awarded.

Zach Donovan earned his entry as the Main Event champion.

Another GCC was set to be awarded to the Casino Champion but this series had a familiar face. Martin Ryan was his seat after earning Casino Champion titles during our September series and he did it again this time around once more after two runner-up finishes. Since he already owns a seat in the game, a second was not awarded this series.

Here’s a look at the full series results:

That’s a wrap for the World Series of Poker Circuit at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. Thank you to everyone who played! Stay tuned for details on future South Florida series.

Main Event: Zach Donovan Notches Emotional WSOPC Main Event Win

2019 February WSOP Circuit
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
$1,700 WSOP Circuit Main Event
$1,000,000 Guaranteed
Entries: 805
Prize Pool: $1,219,575
February 15-18, 2019

(Coconut Creek, FL) — The headliner on the Coco WSOP Circuit schedule was the $1,000,000 Guarantee Main Event and it drew a stellar group of players to the four-day tournament. There were 805 entries taking a shot at the big title and it was Zach Donovan standing out among them all, running big at the final table to take the WSOPC Main Event ring along with more than $240,000.

It was an emotional win. Donovan wasn’t expecting to play in the Main Event this weekend. Unfortunately for Donovan and his family, his grandfather passed away on Friday and he planned to spend the weekend with his family. Instead, they convinced him that playing was exactly what his grandfather would want.

“I guess he was with me the whole time. We won.” he commented when it was done.

So Donovan played Flight B and went on to book his second career WSOP Circuit win.

The tournament featured two starting flights that pushed the prize pool over $1,200,000. Some of the best players from around the country and South Florida came for the Main Event including Brian Altman, Martin Ryan, Robert Mizrachi, Jessica Dawley, Sam Panzica, Tristan Wade, and Tony Ruberto.

Donovan came into Day 2 with a below average stack among the 171 returners but he ran it up and finished Day 2 second in chips. He made his move after the Main Event made it into the money with 81 getting paid and he entered Day 3 behind only Jason Young.

It did not take long to reach the final table and Donovan took over the lead shortly after they reached ten-handed play. With only a few exceptions, he held the lead throughout and sat behind a castle of chips until he sent Young out in third place.

Sokchheka Pho made the most of a long heads-up battle and briefly held the lead until Donovan reasserted himself to take the title.

“I felt in control most of the way,” Donovan said after the victory. “Near the end, I felt like I might tilt.”

“But no one likes that,” Donovan laughed.

Pho took home more than $150,000 for outlasting all but one player while Donovan earned $243,916 along with a seat in the WSOP Global Casino Championship later this year.

Congratulations to Donovan and everyone who made a big run. Thanks to our players for another great series and Main Event.

1st: Zach Donovan – $243,916 + WSOP Circuit ring
