Bruce Lankford of Orlando won the $340 NLHE Deepstack event that attracted 449 players to the Gulf Coast Championships at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Miss.
When the final table of Event 10 reached four players they made a deal, and Lankford was called the champ, winning the trophy and more than $26K. But he wasn’t the only Floridian at that final table as Kim Scorpatow of Coconut Creek finished second ($14,559) and David Andrew Clancy of Jacksonville was third ($8.541).
Chad Brown, the popular pro from Margate who’s acting as host to this series with his newlywed wife Vanessa Rousso, won Event 11, a $500 pot-limit Omaha tournament with rebuys.
Floridians have four victories through 13 events at the Beau. The series concludes Sept. 14.
