Late night at Hard Rock yields WPT final table

 Poker is a game of patience, and it took a lot Monday night -- and Tuesday morning at the World Poker Tour Lucky Hearts Poker Open at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

  Play began at 1 p.m Monday for the returning field of 36 players, but the final table of six wasn’t set until 4:40 a.m.

Seat 1: Matt Giannetti - 3,005,000

Seat 2: Lily Kiletto - 860,000

Seat 3: Darryll Fish - 2,660,000
Seat 4: Matt Salsberg - 980,000
Seat 5: Hayden Fortini - 1,620,000
Seat 6: Danny Shiff - 1,930,000

Those eliminated included Vincent Spadavecchia (10th place), Tony Ruberto (11th place), WPT Season X Player of the Year Joe Serock (14th place), Marsha Wolak (23rd place), Mike Beasley (29th place), Justin Zaki (30th place), and Dana Kellstrom (35th place).

Play begins at 3 p.m. Monday, with the live stream on WorldPokerTour.com at 3:30 p.m., and Mike Sexton is in town to call the action. First prize is $323,804. Each gets at least $50,968.
