The World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open (is it only me, or are the tournament names getting longer and longer?) is now over and the main event couldn't have gotten a better winner! Matt Juttelstad from Florida, USA, only took part in the tournament because he was going to be in the Miami area for an interview at the Flroda Atlantic University. He entered Day 1A and busted, then re-entered on Day 1B after his interview had ended earlier that expected.
The decision to try again was very profitable for him as he's now the WPT title holder and has $268,444 to use for his studies. Apart from that, it was a very well deserved win by Juttelstad as he played amazing poker and managed to stay in the top of the chip counts from Day 1 all the way to Day 4.
Final table results:
1st: Matt Juttelstad - $268,444
2nd: Gigi Gagne - $158,194
3rd: Uri Kadosh - $105,463
4th: Sharon Levin - $73,344
5th: Todd Jacobson - $54,649
6th: Keith Ferrera - $42,185
