Event 7: Dmitry Agrachov Wins First Title

2016 Winter Poker Open

Dmitry Agrachov, Event 7 Champion

Event 7 was the third multi-day tournament on the 2016 Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Winter Poker Open schedule and it brought out the players. Six starting flights combined to put 624 entries in the game and SHRP regular Dmitry Agrachov outlasted them all to become the next WPO champion after an eight-way deal put $40,727 in his bankroll.

The $570 buy-in tournament was on pace to hit its $200,000 guaranteed prize pool after the first two flights and then blasted past it on the weekend. They pushed the prize over $300,000 by the time registration closed and 113 players returned for Day 2 with a chance to earn a piece of it.

Jerry Silva was the big stack chip leader at the restart but the best he could manage was a 44th place finish with 63 getting paid. Other notables making the money were Tony March, John Holley, David Tuthill, 2010 WSOP November Niner John Dolan, and reigning SHRP Player of the Year David Prociak.

None of them were around as the tournament neared the big money at the final table. Steve Tziris went out in 11th place to set up the ten-handed final table but Joseph Boulais went out at the same time on the other table to make it nine.

Ari Prostak hit the rail shortly after they redrew seats and the remaining eight players worked out a deal to divide up the remaining prize pool. SHRP regular Dmitry Agrachov had run his stack over 3 million and was awarded the title.

Nikita Patalinghug did well to take home more than $30,000 after late trouble. She was down to a single big blind with 16 players remaining then ran up her short stack to the second biggest at the final table.

Rafael Reis continues his hot streak after winning the record-setting Event 1 field during the 2016 Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open” series and Jenn Haselton took away a nice cash while her mother was finishing 20th in the Turbo Event 8 nearby.

But Agrachov is the marquee name at the end of the day. He has nearly $400,000 in career earnings including several close calls to winning a first title. Agrachov has now locked up those honors and now has a tournament win to his credit along with the guitar trophy and a seat $1,650 Winter Poker Open Championship.

Event 7 results:

1st: Dmitry Agrachov – $40,727 + Championship seat
2nd: Nikita Patalinghug – $30,151
3rd: Rafael Reis – $28,360
4th: Steve Pellingra – $26,710
5th: Scott “Twitch” Anderson – $24,730
6th: John Alegria – $23,680
7th: Sean Heywood – $20,700

Dmitry Agrachov

After Ari Prostak’s elimination, the eight remaining players decided to discuss a deal to divide the remaining prize pool. It took a while to get there but they eventually reached a deal with Dmitry Agrachov taking the title as chip leader.

We will have full details of the deal once they all cash out.

Ari Prostak

Scott Anderson opened to 125,000 under the gun, Nikita Patalinghug called on the button, and Ari Prostak moved all-in for ~475,000 from the small blind.

Anderson released and Patalinghug called after a short think.

Patalinghug: KdQd
Prostak: JsJc

It was a race and Patalinghug took the lead on the AsKc9h flop. Prostak blanked the 8s turn and was sent out in ninth place after the 2d river.

Level 27: 25,000/50,000 with a 5,000 ante
Players Remaining: 9 of 624

Steve Trizis

After a brief slowdown, we had two big hands hit at the same time on each table.

On Table 42, action folded to Rafael Reis in the small blind, he moved all-in, and short-stacked Steve Trizis quickly called in the big.

Reis: 7d4s
Trizis: 3c3d

Trizis folded the over cards on the Js9c2s flop but Reis hit the 7h turn. No saving on the 6c river and Trizis went out in 11th place.

While that was happening, Joseph Boulais and Dmitry Agrachov mixed it up after the Jd8h6d flop. Boulais put all his chips in the middle with top pair but Agrachov had him out kicked.

Agrachov: AcJc
Boulais: QhJs

The 3s turn and 2c river did not help Boulias and we had a nine-handed final table to prepare. Tournament staff paused the clock and we will have counts once they are back underway.

Joseph Boulais

Event 7: John O’Neal – 12th Place ($4,035)

$570 Deep Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 26: 20,000/40,000 with a 5,000 ante

John O’Neal

John O’Neal opened to 100,000 from the cutoff and Rafael Reis made it 270,000 from the small blind. O’Neal moved all-in for ~1.3 million and Reis called after a short think.

Reis: AsKc
O’Neal: AcQs

Reis was dominating and the 9c4h3h6sJd send O’Neal out in 12th place while giving Reis a huge lead with 11 players remaining.

Rafael Reis – 2,750,000 (69 bb)
John O’Neal – Eliminated in 12th place ($4,035)

$570 Deep Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 25: 15,000/30,000 with a 5,000 ante
Players Remaining: 12 of 624

Scott Anderson opened for 85,000 and Carlos Loving moved all-in for a modest stack. Anderson called, flipped over TsTd and was in good shape against Loving’s KhQh.

The Th on the flop was good enough for Anderson who improved to a set. Loving never got any love and he went on to bust in 13th place.

Scott Anderson – 1,200,000 (30bb)
Carlos Loving – Eliminated in 13th place ($2,948)

Event 7: Scott Caracciolo – 14th Place ($2,948)

$570 Deep Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)

Players Remaining: 13 of 624

Scott Caracciolo

Scott Caracciolo moved all-in for ~150,000 and Rafael Reis called to put him at risk.

Reis: Jh8h
Caracciolo: Th9h

Caracciolo had two live cards but his hearts were covered and picked up a gutshot on the KdQs5c flop. The 4d turn changed nothing and he was sent out after the 6h river.

Rafael Reis – 1,600,000 (40 bb)
Scott Caracciolo – Eliminated in 14th place ($2,948)

Event 7: Aric Pluskat — 15th Place ($2,958)

Sean Heywood opened shoved for about 360,000 and Aric Pluskat called for less.

Heywood: Ac4s
Pluskat: KdJh

Runout: 9c6s2cTs4d

Heywood improved to a pair of fours and eliminated Aric Pluskat in 15th place.

Manny Minaya

Manny Minaya open-shoved for 230,000 and Joseph Boulais shoved for 260,000 from his direct left. It folded to Remedios Patalinghug and she called having both players covered.

Minaya: AdKh
Boulais: AcQh
Patalinghug: Qd8d

Runout: Qc6c4hAs4c

Boulais’ two pair was best and he tripled up. Patalinghug was left with 42,000 while Minaya was eliminated in 16th place for $2,172.

Joe Boulais – 822,000 (34 bb)

Ari Prostak

The damn broke after the dinner break with some short stacks returning. On one of the first hands back, there was a three-way all-in between Ari Prostak, Amie Martini, and David Coolman.

Prostak: TsTc
Coolman: AhQh
Martini: 9d8d

Prostack had a lot to dodge and Martini caught a piece of the KsJs8c flop while Coolman had added a small gutshot draw. The 4h turn was a blank and the Kc river completed a double KO for Prostak.

Coolman earned 18th place money because of the bigger stack and Table 44 was broken.

Ari Prostak – 622,000 (26 bb)
David Coolman – Eliminated in 18th place ($2,172)

Carlos Loving

Carlos Loving went on the 40-minute dinner break with a head of steam following a confrontation with John Alegria. In a raised pot, the pair got 225,000 in on the turn before Loving’s river bet elicited a fold from Alegria. Loving scooped a massive pot and the players are now on dinner.

Aric Pluskat

The slow, steady pace continues as Event 7 crawls towards the dinner break. There were two double ups without an elimination with former leader Aric Pluskat catching the biggest.

He was all-in with QcQd against Vitor Coelho’s 9c9d.

“My lucky nines!” Coelho laughed.

The 5d4s3h flop made no difference but they both twitched on the 8h turn.

“You guys though it was a nine, didn’t you?” joked a tablemate.

The 5c river completed the clean runout for Pluskat’s double.

Aric Pluskat – 400,000 (20 bb)
Vitor Coelho – 143,000 (7 bb)

Event 7: John Dolan Eliminated in 23rd Place by Scott Caracciolo

$570 Deep Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 22: 8,000/16,000 with a 2,000 ante
Players Remaining: 22 of 624

John Dolan

John Dolan opened it up with a raise to 35,000 from the cutoff. The button called as did the Scott Caracciolo in the big blind. The trio saw a flop of 8s4c3c and Caracciolo checked. Dolan bet 50,000 getting the button to flold. It was back on Caracciolo and he called.

They were then heads up and the dealer peeled the 3d turn. Caracciolo checked and Dolan bet 70,000. Caracciolo verified the value of the bet, then reached deep into hist stack for a raise to 225,000.

Caracciolo raises on the turn.

Dolan thought for a good minute or so, then moved all-in for just slightly more than the 225,000-chip bet. Caracciolo called and Dolan was at risk.

Caracciolo: As3h for trips
Dolan: Jd8h for top pair

The board completed with the 6h. Dolan was left stunned as he was sent home in 23rd place earning $1,707.

Scott Caracciolo

Scott Caracciolo – 1,065,000
John Dolan – Eliminated in 23rd place ($1,707)

Event 7: Davian Santana vs. Brandon Byars

$570 Deep Stack NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 22: 8,000/16,000 with a 2,000 ante
Players Remaining: 25 of 624

Davian Santana

Brandon Byars, who was sitting on over 500,000 at the time, kicked it off with a raise to 35,000. It folded around to Davian Santana in the big blind and he called.

Flop: AdKhTh

Santana checked. Byars bet 60,000. Santana called.

Turn: AdKhTh5d

Santana checked again. Byars bet again, this time an even 100,000. Santana called again leaving himself about 165,000 behind.

River: AdKhTh5dKd pairing the board

Santana lead for an all-in bet of roughly 165,000. Byars frustratingly folded. Santana raked the pot.
