The 2015 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open features a $5 million guaranteed main event with a single starting flight and no re-entries. The final table will be part of a four-event finale with all final tables taking place simultaneously.
Running alongside the main event will be a $25,000 High Roller, a $2,500 No Limit Hold’em and an $1,100 No Limit Hold’em event. The final tables take place August 18, with a combined $7.5 million guaranteed and Phil Hellmuth will be on-hand to host the events and provide live commentary.
“This year’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship is an event not to be missed. With no re-entry, the format becomes a level playing field for poker pros, satellite winners and recreational players alike,” said tournament director Matt Savage. “The postlim events carrying massive guarantees ensure that even if a player busts out of the Championship event, there are more ways to make a huge score.”
The events will be live streamed and filmed for broadcast on CBS Sports Network. “The 2015 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open will elevate the poker experience to a new level,” said General Manager of Poker Operations Larry Frank. “The championship single-entry structure will provide a unique opportunity for players to compete for their share of the $5 million guarantee. Plus, the chance to be part of the finale that showcases four final tables at the same time heightens the energy and excitement of this year’s series.”
Matt Stout‘s Charity Series of Poker returns with a $300 buy-in benefiting Habitat of Humanity International and Habitat for Humanity of Broward. Half of the buy-ins go directly to charity with the other half going for the prizepool.
The full series is scheduled for July 30 – August 19 and the full schedule of events is expected to be released in the coming weeks. Satellites and promotions will be available at all five Seminole properties in Florida.
