DJ Steve Aoki to attend Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown

6 April 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Critically acclaimed musician and producer Steve Aoki will take part in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown as a World Poker Tour ambassador, marking his debut entry into WPT poker events under the new partnership announced in December. Attendees of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown can expect to see Aoki competing in poker tournaments and hosting a full slate of events at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida, on Sunday, 10 April.

"I am super excited to get back to playing some cards with the World Poker Tour. Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown here I come!” Aoki said.

Players and fans are welcome to attend Aoki’s Meet & Greet and autograph session at 3 pm on Sunday, 10 April. Aoki will then handle “Shuffle Up and Deal” duties for the $1,700 Deep Stack Purple Chip Bounty event, in addition to hosting a VIP gathering on property later that evening.

“Steve Aoki brings an unmatched passion and energy to any venue,” said Adam Pliska, World Poker Tour CEO. “As we continue to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the World Poker Tour, having Steve augment the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown is all we could ask for.”

This will be the second opportunity in as many months for fans to meet Aoki through WPT. In February, Aoki held a special event for lucky fans at his Las Vegas-based Aoki Playhouse where a handful of selected winners played a Sit and Go poker tournament with Aoki, Phil Ivey, Maria Ho, and Vince Van Patten. Aoki superfan Chris Osse took down the top prize of a signed custom WPT and Steve Aoki collaborative poker chip set.

Aoki’s presence will amplify an already charged Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown tournament schedule, highlighted by the $3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown main event, which runs Friday, 8 April through Tuesday, 12 April.
