Seminole Hard Rock announces Rock 'n' Roll Poker Open

5 October 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Poker action returns to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood in Florida from 16 – 30 November, 2016 with the Seminole Hard Rock Poker (SHRP) Rock 'n' Roll Poker Open (RRPO). The poker community will come together once again at the AAA Four Diamond-rated resort for a 15-day, 14-tournament series highlighted by a $3,500 buy-in, $2 million guaranteed Championship.

Sharing the spotlight is the $360 buy-in, $1 million guaranteed opener, the first event in Florida poker history to offer a seven-figure guarantee at this price point.

"We look forward to presenting a product that's never been offered in this region," said Tony Burns, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tournament director. "The idea that one or more players could turn a modest $360 investment into a six-figure score is something we're very excited about."

The series will also feature a $50,000 buy-in High Roller. The event, also new to the series, is structured as a one-day Turbo.

"After experiencing strong turnouts at previous Seminole Hard Rock Poker $25,000 High Roller events, we received feedback from local high-limit players that encouraged us to add the $50,000 tournament on our schedule," said William Mason, director of poker at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. "We expect to draw some of the games' most elite."

Another first for Seminole Hard Rock Poker will be a series of tournaments live streamed by Poker Night in America. Historically, Poker Night in America only streamed Championships and cash games. Complete with commentary and hole cards, the live streaming will be comprised of featured tables during the early stages of play and final table coverage during the late stages of play.

The new schedule includes a total of 10 days of broadcasting online at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker website. (Schedule is tentative and subject to change.)
