Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Series schedule announced17 February 2017
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood has announced that the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown (SHRP Showdown) is slated for Thursday, 16 March to Sunday, 9 April 2017. For the second consecutive year, the series will run in partnership with the World Poker Tour, featuring two Season XV events: the $3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Championship and $10,000 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Finale. Each tournament features a $2 million guarantee and awards-entry into the season-ending Tournament of Champions, which runs Friday, 7 April to Sunday, 9 April.
"We're excited to continue to run some of the highest profile events in the world here in South Florida," said Jason Newman, director of poker marketing for Seminole Gaming. "The success of last year's $10,000 buy-in WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Finale and $25,500 High Roller allowed us to up the ante for this year's event with the addition of a $50,000 Super High Roller."
Highlight events on this year's schedule include:
SHRP Showdown series satellites are running now at Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood. Players are able to earn their way into the $25,500 High Roller for as little as $80 while $10,000 Finale tickets can be won for $125 and $3,500 Championship seats for $95. The property is also giving away one free Championship seat via an online promotion.
To participate in a tournament, players must obtain a Wild Card at the Player's Club or in the poker room free of charge. More information, schedule and contest rules can be found at the website.
