The World Poker Tour is currently at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida for a series of events. The $3,500 buy-in SHR Poker Showdown was won by Justin Young, who shipped $669,161 for first place. Cate Hall finished in ninth place and narrowly missed winning the Hublot POY. She finished in second place overall in the Player of the Year standings behind Mike Shariati (who won the WPT Legends of Poker and was runner-up at the WPT L.A. Poker Classic).

It was not just a holiday for stoners. But April 20 down in Florida was looking like a potential historic day in the poker world. Cate Hall was challenging Mike Shariati for the overall lead in the WPT's Player of the Year race. Hall has hit the circuit like an exploding comet over the last season or so. She needed to finish no lower than third place if she wanted to win POY. She was also attempting history by becoming the first female champion in an open WPT event. A win at the SHR Poker Showdown would kill two birds with one stone for Hall – she'd lock up POY and be the first woman to ship a WPT title. Alas, it wasn't her day. She was ninth in chips with 10 players remaining and couldn't get anything going. She busted in ninth place for a $65,404 payday. With her elimination, Mike Shariati secured Hublot's POY. Shariati nearly won both Los Angeles-based WPT events this season. He won the WPT Legends of Poker at the start of the season, then went super-deep at the WPT L.A. Poker Classic with a runner-up performance.

 

The $10,000 buy-in SHR Poker Showdown drew in 1,222 runners or swampdonks as I like to call them. When all the swamp wrestling was settled, only one player emerged alive from the Everglades… Justin Young. He had several deep WPT runs under his belt and once finished second at the Bellagio several years ago. Young got heads-up against Garrett Greer, who also had some experience going deep as well. Although neither had broken through to the winner's circle, one of them was determined to make 4/20 a historic day for the rest of their poker lives. Alas, Justin Young knocked out Greer in second place. Garrett Greer won $458,722 for a runner-up finish, while Young earned a first-place payday worth nearly $670K. Young also won a free seat (worth $15,000) into the WPT Tournament of Champions, which starts tomorrow! For full details, read the coverage from the WPT media crew.
