$10 Million Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Set for August; Won't Clash with EPT Barcelona

$10 Million Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Set for August; Won't Clash with EPT Barcelona 0001

Last year, the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida rocked the poker world with a $10 million guarantee tournament. The $5,300 buy-in event exceeded the guarantee by nearly $2 million, and Blair Hinkle, captured the title for nearly $1.75 million after defeating Justin Bonomo heads-up.

The massively popular Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open series will return this year with a 23-event festival beginning on Aug. 14, highlighted by another $10 million guarantee beginning on Aug. 28. Also featured will be a $100,000 Super High Roller on Sept. 1. Both tournaments allow reentries.

The Seminole Hard Rock had previously published tentative dates that coincided with the European Poker Tour Barcelona, but the casino eventually pushed the series closer to September in order to avoid a potential conflict. EPT Barcelona, the first festival of Season 11, wraps up one day before the Seminole Hard Rock's Main Event, giving players an opportunity to participate in both if they so choose.

The Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open series also features a $2,200 eight-game mix, a $2,200 six-max, and a $1,650 bounty tournament. Here's a look at the complete schedule:
