World Series of Poker Europe

Season 3 of Hollywood Poker Open Continues from April 16-26 with St. Louis Regional

Hollywood Poker Open St. Louis

Want to win your way into the Hollywood Poker Open (HPO) season-ending Championship Event at M Resort Casino Spa in Las Vegas? If so, one of the best ways to do so is through promotional seats at each Regional stop. Fortunately, the next one is right around the corner from April 16-26 at the Hollywood Casino in St. Louis, Missouri.

The latest HPO Regional stop, which will features 34 events — 12 of which are HPO-sanctioned "featured" events — will be giving away plenty of the aforementioned seats. According to HPO Tournament Director Bill Bruce, this was their plan throughout 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 tournament 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."

The St. Louis stop is the fifth of the season, and comes after several successful stops. Last November, Jesse McEuen took down the HPO Lawrenceburg for $49,676, and in early February Charles Maxcy took down the HPO Toledo for $37,465 after a chop. From there, Donald McArthur won the HPO Tunica for $17,100, and most recently Steven Gurney-Goldman took down the HPO Grantville Regional for $29,342.

Looking forward to the St. Louis stop, 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event champ and HPO ambassador Chris Moneymaker is slated to make an appearance, and the PokerNews Live Reporting team will be on hand to capture all the Regional Main Event action in our live blog.

Speaking of Moneymaker, in 2014 he actually won the HPO St. Louis for $36,259 and a seat into the $2,500 HPO Championship Event. You can read a recap of Moneymaker's win by clicking here.
