Michael Newman

We’re beginning to see some friends from the other side of the state take part in the WPTDeepStacks Tampa Main Event. Michael Newman made the trek from South Florida to take part in today’s flight with an opportunity to advance his standing the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year race.

Newman sits in fourth place with two more tournaments to go, this one and the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship in August. He sits behind Brian Hastings, Brett Bader, and Darryll Fish and they are out in the desert of Las Vegas at the moment. A perfect time for Newman to add to his point total and gain some ground.

Newman’s biggest score came in November with a victory in the Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open” Championship.
