Wally Maddah

First break came and went and the field got a nice shot with 32 entries now in the game. Of the new faces, one of the more recognizable belongs to Wally Maddah. Like the aforementioned Tony March, Maddah is a huge supporter of Seminole properties and plays seemingly every tournament here in Tampa.

“A fish to my left!” Maddah laughed taking his seat next to fellow Florida grinder Jeffrey Trudeau.

Maddah recently hit a huge milestone recording his 100th cash at a Seminole property. While the vast majority of his body of work came here in Tampa, it was at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek that he cracked triple digits.

Tampa’s Wally Maddah recorded his 100th Seminole cash with a win last month during the Coconut Creek WSOP Circuit series.

Maddah made it count, too, breaking through for a World Series of Poker Circuit gold ring win in Event 11 ($250 Turbo) carding a score of $6,721. He rode his 100th cash and hot play to a follow-up 101st cash just a day later in the property’s $1,700 buy-in Main Event.

With that, the all-time Seminole cashes leader headed back home to Tampa and eyes 102 here in the Pinktober $565.
