In 2013, the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open (played in Florida) $5,300 buy-in Main Event drew a massive 2,384 entries thanks to a successful multi-day re-entry format, plus, of course, a $10,000,000 guarantee!
At the end of it all, Blair Hinkle, a 27-year-old pro from Kansas City, Missouri, emerged victorious (Defeated Justin Bonomo heads-up) to lay hands on $1.7m in prize money from the total prize pool of $11.9m!
The popular tournament series will be back this year on August 14 with 23 exciting events, including the $10 million guarantee main event! Also, the Hard Rock Poker Open will feature the award of the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the year. The award is based on players performances during four tournament series held at the casino. The winner will take home $30k worth of tournament buy-ins, along with other VIP casino benefits.
In addition to the Main Event, we will keep you up-to-date on the $100,000 High Roller event (re-entries allowed) that kicks off on September 1! Make a note in your calendars already now, because you sure don't want to miss out on these two events!
