Colby Covington finishes seventh in massive poker tournament

Colby Covington seemed to mostly play his cards right.

The former UFC interim welterweight champion and multi-time title challenger, finished a major South Florida poker tournament in seventh place Monday and cashed for nearly $50,000 in prize money on a $400 buy-in.

Covington made the final table of the Seminole Hard Rock Casino’s $400 Deep Stack No-Limit Hold’em event in Hollywood, Fla. He went all in with an Ace of hearts and 8 of diamonds against Tommy Morgado, who had an A-K of diamonds when they turned their cards over. Neither player got any help from the cards on the table, so Morgado’s King beat Covington’s 8 to eliminate him.

According to the casino, there were more than 7,700 entries in the tournament, which had a prize pool of more than $2.5 million. Covington’s share for seventh place was $48,298. Morgado, who eliminated Covington when they went head to head, finished second and took home nearly $187,000 when the final five players reached a deal to split the prize pot based on their chip holdings.
