2021 Pinktober Poker Open
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
$1,100 One-Day Challenge (Re-Entry)
Prize Pool: $107,115
October 23, 2021
The $1,100 One-Day Challenge headlined the 2021 Pinktober Poker Open and the tournament had a great turnout. We saw 111 entries join on a Saturday afternoon and it was Poker Room regular Steve Trizis taking top honors for his first career win.
The tournament more than doubled its $50,000 guarantee and they combined to create a prize pool worth $107,115. The last 12 spots were paid and the money bubble burst two seconds before the dinner break.
When they returned, it quickly played down to the final table where Trizis was among the short stacks. But two big hands were all it took; he took the lead while players dropped and had well more than half the chips in play with the last five players decided to divide up the remaining prize money.
Trizis earned $26,243 for his part of the deal with Amelio Amato, David Bees, Tim Geier, and Jerry Silva also getting an adjusted payout.
Congrats to Steve and thanks to all our players who came out.
