Pinney: asqs for top pair, queen kicker

Turn and river: 4d9s

Speer’s top top held and Ginney was eliminated on the bubble. With that, the final 87 players were in the money and assured a cash of at least $1,062.

Manouchakian: qsqh
At-risk player: tcth

Runout: qctd6s5c7h

Both players flopped a set, but Manouchakian was best. The turn and river brought no improvement for his opponent and Manouchakian held to stack the pot.

Julio Delgado Reyes recently ended the title defense of last year’s $570 champion Gil Aboodi.

There was three-way all-in preflop action between Delgado Reyes, Aboodi and Lynn Folsom.

Folsom: axax
Delgado Reyes: tctd
Aboodi: ahkd

Delgado Reyes was second best of the trio, but had both players covered.

Runout: tsth5s4d7d — The table erupted as Delgado Reyes flopped quads leaving Aboodi and Folsom stunned. The pair stood from the table, silently heading toward the rail while Delgado Reyes scooped both the main and side pots.

Julio Delgado Reyes – 285,000
Gil Aboodi – Eliminated

Carlos Guerrero’s 430,000-chip stack

Flight E of the Winter Poker Open $570 is moving along and players just finished their last break of the night. From 192 starting, they’re down to only 45 left with just one hour of play remaining in the day.

This is the point in the tournament where lots of movement in the stacks can often take place. One player that’s already seen a lot of movement in his 30,000-chip starting stack is Carlos Guerrero.

After starting the day about seven hours ago on a level playing field, he’s worked his way way up the counts and has a pile of chips worth about 430,000. As is, he’s tops in his flight easily and that figure puts him at fifth in the overall counts for now.

His stack is so big, in fact, he’s late returning to play choosing to instead let a few rounds of blinds and antes come out before the end of the night.

David Bradshaw

Bradshaw is a past Winter Poker Open Main Event champion having won the finale in December of 2016.

Back then, Bradshaw pocket $154,750 for the victory and was catopolted into third place on the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year leaderboard.

Now, a couple years later, he’s back in search of more scores. It wasn’t meant to be in the 10am Flight E, but he re-entered and is back in the game in the 3pm Flight F.

Geneva Pinney

The Flight E field is looking up at Geneva Pinney as the second break of the day is nearing. Pinney is tops with a stack of roughly 150,000 and she looks to keep a hot November/December going that already includes 2nd-, 4th- and 5th-place finishes and about $16,500 in earnings.

There are a number of familiar and decorated faces in the field and we’ll take a look at some of them after registration closes.

Marvin Karlins

Never one to shy from action, it’s no surprise to see Marvin “The Duckman” Karlins with a big stack early here in Flight E of the $570. Karlins, a published author and university professor, is a regular in the Tampa poker room. His poker achievements include a final table appearance in a $5,000 buy-in event in Jacksonville along with more than $280,000 in earnings.

Karlin’s tournament resume is devoid of any wins, though, and he’s hoping a hot start here in the $570 is the first step toward finding the winner’s circle. Later in Level 7 he’s already tripled up and sits with about 100,000 chips.

The sixth and final flight kicks off then, too.

Thanks for a great showing, Tampa!
