$350 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em Re-Entry
Entries: 546
Prize Pool: $163,800
December 11-13, 2017

One-time Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year David Prociak continued to dominate the SHRP scene during the early morning hours of Thursday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa. Prociak, a resident of nearby Orlando, scored an outright win in Event 4 of the property’s Winter Poker Open, a $350 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Re-Entry tournament. For the impressive feat, he was rewarded with $40,787 and, remarkably, his seventh SHRP trophy.

The tournament drew a big field of 546 entries generating a total prize pool of $163,800. That figure easily surpassed the $100,000 guarantee and ultimately saw the top 54 players finish in the money. Day 2 restarted with 101 remaining and Prociak held a top-20 stack. Play moved fast with the bubble bursting after the first break and the field quickly narrowing to the final few tables. Prociak beat up the late stages of the tournament taking the chip lead to the final table and never looking back.

Prociak is 35 years old donned his POY title during the 2016 season. The WPO Event 4 win grew his recorded earnings to over $800,000 and added to an impressive tournament resume that also includes a World Series of Poker gold bracelet. In addition to his poker income, Prociak is a business owner.

100,000 chips are now play as the average stack sits just about 20 big blinds.

Despite an average stack hovering around 24 big blinds, it’s been an uneventful final table thus far. There are two extremely short stacks — Chris Whitney with 10 big blinds and Thomas Jackson with three big blinds — so we expect some movement soon.
