 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 2: Lily Kiletto - 860,000

Seat 4: Matt Salsberg - 980,000
Seat 5: Hayden Fortini - 1,620,000
Seat 6: Danny Shiff - 1,930,000
