Live Poker Tournament Wins for Miami Boss, Aaron Massey and the Charity Series of PokerLive poker tournament wins for Danny “Miami Boss’ Suied at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open; likewise for Aaron Massey at the Heartland Poker Tour Ameristar, and great news for Matt Stout and the team at the Charity Series of Poker.

Whilst all eyes are currently focused on the record breaking European Poker Tour (EPT) in Barcelona, the Americans are also hosting a few events that need to be touched upon.

First we head to the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open (SHRPO), and the side events that will culminate in the $10m Guaranteed Main Event due to be held Aug 28th.

Event #1 $350 Deep Stack No-Limit Hold’em (NLHE), was a five-day event that attracted 2,888 entries, who took their seats over six starting flights, to create a total prize pool of $866,400.

The winner, Daniel ‘Miami Boss’ Suied, pocketed $110,349 after the final four players agreed to a chop meaning there was no four-way, three-way or heads-up action to write about.

“It’s good to pop one,” Suied told the SHRPO blog after his win, “I had a couple of final tables but it’s nice to get a six-digit score.”

The victory was Suied’s biggest of his career and now takes his live tournament earnings close to $340,000. Suied was a member of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Season XII Ones to Watch.

The recent World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) event winner, at the Palm Kennel Beach Club, and former guest on CalvinAyre, Tristan Wade, finished 11th in the event.

Aaron Massey takes his all time live tournament earnings over the $2m mark after victory at the most recent Heartland Poker Tour (HPT) Main Event in Chicago.

“I don’t have any words to say how I feel right now. I really wanted to win. I just kept firing away until I finally won the title.” Said Massey after his win.

The event drew in 538 entrants to create a $771,720 prize pool making it a record breaking Chicago HPT event. It’s also the third successive year that Massey has won an event in his own backyard after taking down the $5,000 Heads-Up event at the Chicago Poker Classic in 2013, and a Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) event also at the Chicago Poker Classic back in 2012.

Also making the final table was Mike Mustafa who you may remember finished second in a $500 NLHE event in the Chicago Poker Classic earlier this year.

Massey, who entered the final table as the chip leader, defeated Stan Jablonski in heads-up action after 50 hands were played out. The final hand saw the pair getting it in on [Kc] [Jd] [Th] with Massey holding two pair and Jablonski holding an open-ender.

Massey’s hand held true to capture the $177,502 first prize.
