Omar Zazay Wins Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event

A total of 907 players entered the 2015 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event, which meant that the host had to fork out some cash from its own pockets to cover the guarantee. We are pretty sure that the players didn't mind that!

Anyhow, after four days of play it was Omar Zazay who laid hands on the title after defeating local poker dealer Brian Phillis heads-up. Zazay, from Richardson, Texas, received $1,000,000 for his victory - which brought his lifetime poker tournament earnings to over $1.3 million! 

What about Dan Colman (the winner of this event back in 2014)? Well, Colman started the final table in third place and also finished in the same position for $310,000. Although he failed to defend his title, he should be very satisfied with making back-to-back Main Event final tables!

"It was a really long journey - a four-day tournament and I was just trying to take stay focused and take it one step at a time. Getting down three-handed with Dan Colman was definitely a sticky situation. I had him on my right so I had a little edge on him. I was trying to do the best I could against him and not give him chips so he could use them against me. I picked my spots well. The heads-up was a lot going on. I know I really wanted this title so I tried my best to win. I think he had me at almost a 3-to-1 chip advantage. I just took it one hand at a time and slowly edged my way to the win," Omar Zazay told Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open interviewers following his victory.

An excellent win for Omar Zazay who before this had only won $300,000 live tournament winnings in his poker career so he must be extremely happy to add a cool million on top after just 4 days of playing.

Also congrats 2 the runner up - that Phillis guy will never have to work as a dealer again in his life.

What a huge boost on Omar Zazay's lifetime poker tournament earnings this victory represented. He just multiplied by four everything he had won until now. Puting the hands to $1M in a poker table must be a huge feeling, even more when it's the first time. This would be that kind of moment of which i would like to have a photo from, but with the money on the table!

wow, omar zazay is a real menace at the poker tables, nevermind that i hear the first time about him- that doesn't make his win any less amazing. zazay has become one of the hottest properties in the online and offline poker world. girls are shouting his name and surname on the streets and children are crying from joy that they had a chance to peek at zazay...
