The Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida released the schedule for its 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown on Tuesday. The series will run from March 27 through April 16.
The series will conclude with a televised World Poker Tour championship event running from April 10 through 16. The $3,500 buy-in WPT Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship event will feature a guaranteed prize pool of $5 million with three starting flights and re-entries.
As previously reported, the event was originally advertised with a $10 million guarantee before it was revised to $5 million but with a buy-in half the size. As it stands, the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown holds the largest guaranteed prize pool offered for a $3,500 buy-in tournament.
“Seminole Hard Rock Poker continues to strive to offer outstanding experiences for our tournament players,” Ray Stefanelli, Director of Poker Marketing for Seminole Game, said.
Explaining the change, Stefanelli told pokernews.com “while the August Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open championship event was extremely successful at a $5,300 buy-in, we wanted to provide a more accessible price-point in April and expose more customers to both the WPT and Seminole Hard Rock poker brands and the televised championship event.”
The tournament will also offer smaller events such as a $1 Million Guaranteed $560 Deep Stack No-Limit Hold’em Re-Entry on March 27, and a $500,000 Guaranteed $350 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em Re-Entry on April 3.
