According to a press release…
Tony Burns, the Seminole Hard Rock Tournament Director, commented on the upcoming series by stating: “Year in and year out, the Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open has been one of our best poker series. Never was this more apparent than in 2016 when the series-opening $360 buy-in, $1 Million Guarantee drew more than 5,000 entries making it the largest poker tournament in state history. That benchmark stands to this day and we’re eager to get cards in the air for this year’s series which sees us partner with the World Poker Tour to bring the South Florida market a $3,500 buy-in, $2 Million Guarantee Championship.”
Headliner and Promotions:
The series headliner is the $3,500 World Poker Tour Championship, which will have a $2 million guaranteed prize pool. The final table of this event will take place on November 28th and be filmed and aired on Fox Sports Network.
The Seminole Hard Hotel & Casino Hollywood will be offering a Win A Seat program for the poker tournament, allowing players to visit the Hard Rock Poker site and enter for a chance to win a seat to the WPT Championship.
