SHRPO will kick off Wednesday, 27 July with the $400 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em series opener featuring a $1 million guarantee.

Unique to South Florida, SHRPO is known for its one-of-a-kind finisher – The Big 4. The Big 4 is a collection of four-tournament finales that feature staggered structures, timed so the events play down simultaneously. The Big 4 Championship will be filmed for TV and live-streamed by Poker Night in America Tuesday, 9 August. Carrying combined prize pools of $6.5 million, The Big 4 events include:

- $5,300 SHRPO NLH Championship (Single Re-Entry Per Day), $3 Million Guarantee, starts at 11 a.m. on Friday, 5 August
- $2,700 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry), $1 Million Guarantee, starts at 2 p.m. on Sunday, 7 August
- $1,100 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry), $500,000 Guarantee, starts at 11 a.m. on Monday, 8 August
- $25,500 High Roller NLH (Re-Entry), $2 Million Guarantee, starts at noon on Monday, 8 August

Other events surrounding The Big 4 include the Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) highlighting a $200,000 guarantee, starting Monday, 1 August at 11 a.m., and a Deep Stack Eight-Handed No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) event starting on Tuesday, Aug. 9 at noon, highlighting a $500,000 guarantee.

SHRPO’s footprint boasts a capacity for more than 70 tables providing plenty of space for poker tournament players from around the globe. In 2021, SHRPO’s The Big 4 total cash payout exceeded the guarantees, topping out at more than $9.7 million. Boasting the third-largest championship field in SHRPO history, the 2021 championship also saw 1,180 total entries, for a total prize pool of $5.7 million.
