The 2024 Lucky Hearts Poker Open is now complete, and there was some terrific action throughout the entire event. There were 52 events that took place throughout the event, with everything wrapping up with the LHPO Championship Event.
This tournament was held at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa, Florida, and it attracted some of the top players in the state. In the end, it was Raminder Singh that took home the win at the championship event as he won over $486,000.
There were plenty of other huge payouts awarded throughout the event, but the big win from Singh came at event number 34. This was a $3,500 buy-in No Limit Hold-em Championship, and it attracted several big names in the poker industry.
A Deal Was Made
There was some drama taken away from the final table at the championship event as all three of the final players simply wanted to get their hands on a piece of the prize money. Those players did deserve that opportunity though as there were nearly 1,200 entries that signed up to play and paid the massive entry fee.
Singh has had a ton of success at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino throughout the years as he has already won 10 tournaments there. This was one that could have gone either way though, but heeded up with the most chips when the players decided to do a three-way chop.
Throughout his impressive live poker career, he is closing in on $3 million in prize money, and the nearly $500,000 won at this event helped push that total. There were some other big names at the final table as well, and that action was intense throughout the day.
Dan Martin took home second place with $460,000 and Jess Lonis also took home over $400,000 by finishing in a near tie with the other two players. Ninth place in this tournament still earned a prize of nearly $70,000, and many o the players were being conservative to ensure that they were taking home a big prize.
Moss Wins Big During LHPO
There is no limit on how many different tournaments a player can enter during the Lucky Hearts Poker Open, and many of the players try to stay busy down in Florida. That was the case for Frederic Moss, but he was also to cash in a number of times throughout the event.
Moss took home three tournament wins during the LHPO for a total win of more than $45,000. He was not entering in the massive events that took place, but he was still able to prove himself among some other terrific live poker players.
Phillip Hui was the only other player to win more than one event during the LHPO, and he also cleaned up in some of the smaller events. There were over 3,200 entries in the first event of the series as more than $1,000,000 in guaranteed prize money was handed out.
