Huck Seed makes final table of Full Tilt $750,000 Guaranteed
The weekly Full Tilt Poker $750,000 Guarantee had a couple of surprises on Sunday. The first was the 3,821 players that registered which is the highest the numbers have hit so far this month.
The final prize pool was $764,200 eliminating the need for the guarantee and 522 places paid with first place claiming $135,301.61.
The second surprise was seeing a Full Tilt Pro navigate his way through the huge field and end up at the final table. There were many entered in the event, Lee Watkinson finished 363rd, David Benyamine finished 324th, Keith Sexton finished 90th and Ram Vaswani finished 230th. It was former world series of poker champion Huckleberry Seed though that made it all the way to the final 9.
Though crippled when his pair of nines ran into aces, Huckleberry was not the first to leave the final table. That honor went to Tarsis, who limped with a pair of fours and three callers went to the flop. The flop brought two of the same suited cards and Tarsis’s set. He pushed all in only to be called by the flush draw that not only hit on the turn but again on the river.
Huckleberry Seed, short stacked from a previous hand was next to push. He was called by Smackgirl (who had the aces last time) and then re-raised all in by sunfish2. Smackgirl gets out the way and Seed’s K4 was heads up against A9. A flopped ace sent Huckleberry to the rail in eighth.
