The World Series of Poker isn't the only game in town. Starting Friday, June 26, 2015, Season 3 of the Hollywood Poker Open will see its culmination with the $2,500 Championship Event at M Resort Casino Spa in Las Vegas. This is a can't-miss event for those in the area, and it comes with a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000 that is anticipated to be shattered.
In Season 1 and Season 2, the HPO Championship Event attracted 631 and 692 entries, respectively, and this year's field is hopeful of pushing past the 700-entry mark. It all kicks off on Friday, June 26 at 12 p.m. local time with the plan to play 11 one-hour levels. Players will begin with a 20,000-chip starting stack, and registration will remain open until the start of Day 2.

"The Hollywood Poker Open $2,500 Championship Event is certainly one of the can't-miss tournaments of the summer," said PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters. "After two huge fields turned out in Season 1 and Season 2, an average of $335,000 was awarded to the winner. Add in the great HPO staff, world-class M Resort Casino Spa, and playing alongside 2003 WSOP Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker, and you’d regret passing this one up."
