Jacob Naumann (St. Petersburg, FL) is no stranger to Seminole Hard Rock Poker.

Naumann had back-to-back final tables at the 2013 Seminole Hard Rock Showdown, Hollywood, which included his first career win for $5,000. Tonight he’s off to another good start and is now the chip leader with ~80k.

After Naumann 3-bets to 2,600, he gets one caller and sees original raiser Manny Minaya (Tampa, FL) move all in for ~20k. Naumann tank-calls and after the third player folds is in great shape.

Naumann: AdKs
Minaya: AhQc

The board runs clean for Naumann and sends Minaya to the rail.

“It’s not that good of a call,” said Naumann, who had ~50k to start the hand, “but it’s a rebuy, I’m not folding Ace-King there.”

Minaya, who has $1.3 million in career earnings, takes advantage of the structure and quickly jumps back into the field.

Minaya was part of a chop here in December’s opening event of the Winter Poker Open, good for $11,000. His son Dominick won the event.
