HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (Jan. 28, 2022) – Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood concluded its 2022 Lucky Hearts Poker Open (LHPO) on Wednesday with the second biggest World Poker Tour (WPT) live field in its history. Besting 1,982 entries in the WPT LHPO Championship, Alexander Yen of Indianapolis, Ind. made history by winning $975,240.

“It feels absolutely incredible,” said Yen. “I’ve never won a live tournament before. I don’t even think I’ve won online, so this is a pretty unreal feeling.”

The $3,500 WPT LHPO finale boasted a final prize pool of more than $6.3 million, easily exceeding the $2 million guarantee. The last 248 spots were paid $6,275 for a min-cash.
