Big hands happen even when it’s not late in the game. We caught the end of a hand at Table 20 with a lot of chips in the middle. Greg Osborn was all in at risk for 33,200 (better than starting stack) against Tony March.
Osborn got his chips in good, finding action with his against . March still had a two-out dream after the flop but Osborn made a boat on the turn to slam the door. He is up to 68,400 and March dropped below starting stack.

2021 Pinktober Poker Open Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, Florida Event 8 $200 Bankroll Builder (Re-Entry) $10,000 Guaranteed Entries: 164 Prize Pool: $26,240 October 24, 2021
We closed out the weekend with a Pinktober Poker Open $200 Bankroll Builder Sunday afternoon; poker and football and big money. The tournament drew 164 entries and Michael Williams took the top prize after a six-way deal at the final table saw him earn $6,863.
The tournament doubled its $10,000 guarantee and then some, creating a prize pool worth $26,240. The last 17 spots paid out and they burst the bubble in an interesting manner. Still three away from the money, we lost a player at each of the last three tables at the exact same time so no hand-for-hand was needed.
Once the final table was reached, they lost three players before the last six decided to divide up the remaining prize money with Williams taking the biggest piece. Eric Fields, Jay Giles, Ruben Torres, Chanthy Phoutsakanh, and Wally Maddah were all part of the deal.
Congrats to Michael and great job by our players for such a great final Sunday of the series.

The action slowed again and it looked like we’d be getting the money bubble near the next break. We have 20 players remaining at three tables when things took off in a sprint.
One player was eliminated at each table, at the same time, to suddenly go from 20 remaining to 17 in the money just like that.
Wally Maddah is in the group cashing and he has chips. For record-keeping purposes, he also booked the 83rd Tampa Poker cash of his career for the most in our history. Karl Manouchakian tied for the lead on Friday with his 82nd, stayed there all day Saturday until Maddah cashed the One-Day Challenge, and now Maddah is back at the top.
That will conclude our coverage for the day. We will post the results and final numbers after they finish this evening.

There was a bit of a slowdown but action is picking back up as the field reached three tables with 24 players remaining. That leaves them only seven eliminations away from making some money. Next stop; the bubble.
