$175 + $25 + $20 Turbo No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Call it the Wrath of Khan as Al Khan (Wesley Chapel, FL) speeds through the turbo field to claim a win in the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Winter Poker Open tournament series.
Khan had the chip lead heads up against Duane Podgorski and won every hand that went to a flop. Podgorski was whittled down to just a few big blinds when he defended with T2 against Khan’s AQ.
The board is clean for Khan who not only wins the $4,043 top prize, but also gets a voucher into the WPT Hard Rock Tampa Bay Winter Poker Open Championship.
“I got lucky with the cards,” says the neurologist, “but felt good today.”
Khan is a regular tournament player at Hard Rock and loved the turbo tournament forma, saying, “It doesn’t go too late, I can go to work tomorrow and not be tired.”
