Season 3 of Hollywood Poker Open Kicks Off in Lawrenceburg, Indiana

Hollywood Poker Open Lawrenceburg

Season 3 of the Hollywood Poker Open (HPO) will feature eight stops, the first of which kicked off today at the Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg in Indiana. The stop features a dozen events but culminates on Saturday, Nov. 22 with a $1,115 HPO Regional Main Event, which in addition to a nice payday will award the winner a seat into the season-ending championship at the M Resort Casino Spa in Las Vegas.

The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will also be on hand to capture all the action from the Main Event.

"PokerNews is excited to be continuing its partnership with the Hollywood Poker Open into the upcoming season, and we will once again be providing live coverage from each of the Regional and Championship Main Events," said PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters. "We are looking forward to helping the tour grow and highly recommend all poker players add some HPO stops to their tournament schedule, starting with the Lawrenceburg event this month."

Not only will PokerNews be at each HPO stops, so will 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Chris Moneymaker, who returns as tour ambassador for Season 3. In Season 2, Moneymaker won the Hollywood Poker Open St. Louis Regional Championship and he looks to capture a second title while chumming it up with players from around the country.

Last season, the HPO sent more than 200 promotional winners to the Championship Event. HPO Tournament Director Bill Bruce says the plan is the same in Season 3.

The Season 3 of the HPO schedule features eight stops, including a new one at the Hollywood Casino Toledo from Feb. 5-16. Each stop will include a Main Event as well as qualifiers for the season-ending championship at the M Resort Casino Spa in Las Vegas. Last season, the HPO sent more than 200 promotional winners to the Championship Event. HPO Tournament Director Bill Bruce says the plan is the same in Season 3.

"We plan to not only give away hundreds of seats to the Championship again, but we will also implement similar seat winner promotions to the Regional tournament series as well," said Bruce, who has served as the HPO director since the tour's inception. "These HPO tournament fields are such a great mix of traveling poker professionals and local promotion winners which makes the tournaments really attractive to all levels of poker players."
