Event_10_Winner_CocoSpringSeries

Davie, Fla. resident overcomes 934-entry field to earn $63,000 following three way chop.

Coconut Creek, Fla. (May 1, 2016) — The Coco Poker Spring Series continued Sunday with the headline event of the 13-tournament festival. A $350 buy-in, $250,000 guaranteed tournament, Event 10 took place over the course of five consecutive days including seven starting flights and the Day 2 restart. After all was said and done, Hector Pacheco of Davie, Fla. earned the $63,000 top prize following a three way chop with Michael Grabelsky and Michael Rizzuto.

“I thank God that I won,” Pacheco said. “It was a struggle. It was a tough field. They have a lot of good poker players here at Coconut Creek.”

The Event 10 Day 2 restart boasted a field bursting with talent. World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Loni Harwood, reigning Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year Ory Hen, as well as Adam Leavy and Abbey Daniels were among those still in contention on the tournament’s final day. With all of the restart field in the money, it was Hen who bested the aforementioned group lasting the longest before finishing 12th.

It wasn’t long after Hen’s departure that the tournament consolidated to the 10-handed final table. Pacheco, who took the chip lead shortly after the 27-player redraw, retained his lead and never looked back. Stu Paterson, who won the Coco Poker Showdown Championship earlier this year, busted seventh, followed by traveling poker tournament supervisor Shawn Lytle in sixth. It wasn’t until Steve Leahy’s departure fourth that the remaining three agreed to a deal. Pacheco, who held the chip lead, took $63,000 while Grabelsky nabbed $36,433 and Rizzuto took home $36,432.

“I loved it,” Pacheco said of his dominating his performance. “This game is something that I really enjoy.”

Event 10 drew a field of 934 entries that generated a prize of pool of $280,200 comfortably exceeding the $250,000 guarantee. Pacheco’s win marked his first major tournament victory and was by far his most notable score. He is a 53-year-old computer engineer from Davie, Fla. He says he keeps quite busy with work, but makes time for poker whenever possible.

The Coco Poker Spring Series began Wednesday, April 20 and concludes Monday, May 2.The 13-day event boasted nearly $500,000 in guarantees.

Chip leader Hector Pacheco

When cards went back in the air following break, Hector Pacheco sat second in the counts to Stephen Leahy. His runner-up slot was short lived as he won a couple meaningful pots, most notably one that eliminated Javier Sarache.

Sarache had shoved all in preflop and Pacheco reshoved having Sarache covered. The remaining players folded and Pacheco was in good shape holding asqs against the ax8x of Sarache. The flop brought an eight, but Pacheco improved to a flush on the river to eliminate Sarache. The pot moved him comfortably over 1,000,000 and gave him the chip lead which he retains to this moment.

Javier Sarache and Stu Paterson are seated a table away from each other here on Day 2 of Event 10. The pair stands out because they both own notable victories at the Seminole Coconut Creek property.

Sarache most recently bested 260 entries in Event 2 of the Spring Series good for a score of $7,531. Patteson, meanwhile, earned his title in January’s Coco Poker Showdown Championship. Paterson’s title came at the hands of a 161-player field and earned him $32,785.

While Paterson holds the advantage as far as the size of the score, it’s Sarache who owns the chip lead to this point. He claims 595,000 and sits toward the top of the counts well clear of Paterson’s 167,000 chips.

“The picture will be more exciting when I double,” World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Loni Harwood said after tournament staff grabbed a quick photo of her.

As luck would have it, the double came before she knew it.

Harwood was in the cutoff facing a raise to 14,500. She jammed for her last 77,500 and the button and blinds folded. After a minute or two, the original raiser called and Harwood was at risk.

Harwood: 9c9d
Opponent: AxJx

The flop smacked her opponent falling acjc8s improving him to two pair. The turn 2s left her drawing slim. The river revealed the 9h — one of her two outs — giving her a set and earning her the double.

“Dirty,” she said raking the pot.

Loni Harwood improved to a set on the river.
