2022 Winter Poker Open
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
$1,100 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Prize Pool: $91,180
December 6, 2022
With time running out before the 2022 Tampa Winter Poker Open Championship, we ran the first of two big preliminary tournaments with the $1,100 Deep Stack. Event 6 drew 94 tough entries and Seminole Hard Rock Poker legend Raminder Singh took the top spot for $21,486 after a three-way final table deal.
The tournament surpassed its $75,000 guarantee and put up a prize pool worth $91,180. The last 12 players made the money, and Singh was in the bottom half of the counts as the final table neared. He had only nine big blinds with four players remaining, went up from there in a hurry, and was posing with the trophy less than an hour later.
Singh battled, doubled a few times, and eliminated Tom McDonald, our 2022 Tampa Poker Classic Championship third-place finisher, in fourth place. Two more doubles and he wrestled the lead from Shane Melert and Philip Jackson.
With three players remaining, they made a deal to divide up the remaining prize pool with Singh holding more than half of the chips in play and getting the lion’s share of the prize pool.
This marks the fourth time Singh has finished a major Tampa tournament in the top. In addition to this title, he earned two trophies during the WPT Tampa series in August and won this WPO tournament in 2020.
2020 WPO $600 Deep Stack NLH
2022 WPT Tampa $400 Turbo NLH
2022 WPT Tampa $600 Deep Stack NLH
2022 WPO $1,100 Deep Stack NLH
The Event 6 result pushes Singh’s dominance across the board in Seminole Hard Rock Poker events. Add these four Tampa titles to the incredible nine in Hollywood, plus a RunGood Poker Series Main Event ring from Coconut Creek, and no one has finished it out more times.
Congratulations to Raminder for extending the legend!
