    Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Super High Roller controversy

    All eyes are now on Florida where Pokerstars is making their U.S. live series return with Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open. $100k Super High Roller already had its Day 1 with Day 2 returning in a couple of hours.

    Unfortunately, the series did not go without controversy.

    At the end of the day of the $100,000 Super High Roller, the tournament director announced that with 9 entries, only 2 places will be paid. However, as players were bagging chips, another tournament director came and announced that said there would be 3 players paid.

    It seems now that after one player complained, the structure was changed back to 2 places paid. That player being Scott Seiver.

    At the moment, there are a few different versions of the story circling around. As soon as we know more about the situation, we will explain everything in detail.

    As announced, the $10 Million GTD Main Event has overlaid by $2.5 million. Currently 18 players remain with Mike Leah and Dan Colman as big-stacks as well as Russell Thomas as second smallest stack.

    Recap of EPT Barcelona

    It was a huge series, no down about it. Numerous records were broken including as EPT Barcelona became the biggest ever EPT event. Even the time it required to determine the winner became record-breaking.

    But eventually, after a long heads-up match Andre Lettau from Germany came from the short-stack, took the title and €794,000 first prize with an American Sam Philips finishing runner-up with over €1 million. This is because the deal was made three-handed while Philips was still the chip-leader.

    Talk about timing.

    We hope you enjoyed the festival in Barcelona. The next EPT event will be held in London during October 8-18.

    Let us know what you think about the controversy at Seminole Hard Rock Open Super High Roller and who are you rooting for at the Main event. Is it Daniel Colman whose good run continues? Maybe the November Niner Russel Thomas?
