Cris Tuchman takes home $13,984 after chopping nearly $75,000 of the remaining prize pool six ways.

“100 times my buy-in is pretty good,” says Tuchman who entered the tournament once for $150. “Isn’t that what they say about the lottery?”

This is Tuchman’s second cash of the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Summer Poker Open after finishing 7th in the Omaha H/L. He says he jumped into Flight E of this event after busting on Day 2 of Omaha.

Tuchman is a former dealer who now plays poker full time. He chops with Woodrow Pass, Manny Minaya, Anthony Lee, Mohamed Maghraoui and Jacob Naumann.
