World Series of Poker Europe

Season 3 of Hollywood Poker Open Continues in Toledo, Ohio from Feb. 5-16

HPO Toledo

Back in November, the Hollywood Poker Open (HPO) kicked off the first of its eight stops in Season 3 by visiting the Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg. That Main Event attracted a record-setting HPO field of 207 players and saw Jesse McEuen emerge victorious to capture the $49,676 first-place prize.

The HPO looks to build on that success from Feb. 5-16 at the Hollywood Casino in Toledo, Ohio. The stop will have a dozen “featured events” culminating in the $1,115 HPO Regional Main Event on Saturday, Feb. 14 at 12:15 p.m. In addition, the stop will feature numerous satellites and side events.

2003 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Chris Moneymaker is confirmed to be at the HPO Toledo, and of course the PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be on hand to capture all the Main Event action in our live blog.

"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," PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters previously said. "We are looking forward to helping the tour grow and highly recommend all poker players add some HPO stops to their tournament schedule."

Each stop in Season 3 includes 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."
