The 2017 Seminole Immokalee Poker Challenge marked the second annual series at Seminole Casino Hotel. The six-day festival featured two primary events along with a slew of satellites and secondary events.

Headlining the week was Josh Gibson’s victory in the $1,650 buy-in, $200,000 guaranteed Main Event. In addition to $50,000 in prizes, Gibson earned a $5,250 seat in next August’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship.

Joining Gibson in the winner’s circle was Yves Petithomme who won the opener good for a $10,742 payday.

Nathan Papp finished runner-up in the Main Event coming one spot shy of defending a recent tournament title which came in September during the WPTDeepStacks-Immokalee series. As a consolation prize, Papp earned $42,000 along with 85 addition points toward the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year race. He now tops the leaderboard with three points-eligible events remaining.

Next up in Immokalee is the WPTDeepStacks kicking off the 2017/2018 SHRP season September 1st.
