The 2019 Seminole Hard Rock May Deep Stack Poker Series continued on Tuesday with the $560 Deeper Stack NLH.

On Monday’s Day 1a, 124 runners took to the felt and only 25 survived the flight. Leading the pack with a stack of 778,000 was Pierrot Massenat, followed by Johann Tiemann (510,000) and Ricardo Eyzaguirre (433,000). Others to bag and tag were Erik Christensen (257,000), Ofer Peleg (219,000), Elliott Zaydman (123,000), Derrick Rose (91,000), and Ariel Quintana (47,000).

On Tuesday, another 179 entrants took to the felt to bring the number up to 303 entries, though that could go up as late registration is open until the start of play on Day 2. After 14 levels of play 39 bagged and tagged with Rick Kalgstein and his stack of 502,000 out in front.

Bag and Tag

Monster Pot Goes to Kalgstein

Rick Kalgstein

A preflop raising war resulted in Steven Bennett getting his stack of roughly 150,000 all in preflop and way behind Rick Kalgstein.

Kalgstein: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Bennett: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}

Bennett was in a world of hurt and the {4-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop didn't do him any favors. The {k-Diamonds} turn kept him drawing live but he missed when the {7-Clubs} bricked the river.

"I've Been All in for 40K a Lot of Times Today"

Henry Billete
Henry Billete

That is what Ian O'Hara said when we came across him at risk for that amount against Henry Billete.

O'Hara: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Billete: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

It was a flip and O'Hara was just looking to hold. The {2-Spades}{j-Spades}{q-Hearts} flop kept him in the lead but then disaster struck when the {a-Hearts} spiked on the turn to pair Billete. The {a-Spades} river made it trips and O'Hara headed for the registration desk to fire again.

The 2019 May Deep Stack Poker Series is comprised of three premier events and a slew of side event.

In regards to the latter, last night Event #4: $130 Deep Stack (Re-Entry) attracted 216 runners and surpassed its $20k guaratee by creating a $21,600 prize pool.

Among those to cash but fall short of the final table were Marcia Costa-Savidge (11th - $454), Howard Talesnick (14th - $389), Leon Toledo (17th - $324), and Jose Ardila (22nd - $200).

The tournament ended in a seven-way deal that saw Rollin Hernandez claim the title and $2,926 in prize money.

Perez Flips Shmuel Out of the Tournament

Manny Perez

David Shmuel moved all in for 37,500 under the gun and Manny Perez made the call next to act. The rest of the field cleared out and it was off to the races.

Shmuel: {j-Spades}{10-Spades}
Perez: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Shmuel was at risk and looking to improve to stay alive. The {2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop didn't do him any favors and the turn was anticlimactic as the {9-Spades} gave Perez a set to leave Shmuel drawing dead. The meaningless {3-Clubs} was run out on the river and Shmuel headed for the exit.

Miles Gets Lucky to Bust a Shorty

Chad_Holloway • Level 13: 1,500-2,500, 2,500 ante
Timothy Miles
Timothy Miles

Timothy Miles, who tried to pass off as Corey Burbick, opened with a raise from the hijack only to have the player in the small blind three-bet jam for approximately 25,000. Miles opted to call and discovered he was way behind.

Miles: {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Opponent: {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}

The {3-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop maintained the status quo, but the dealer shook it up by burning and turning the {8-Diamonds} to pair Miles.

The {9-Spades} river changed nothing and Miles scored the knockout.
