Season 4 of Penn National Gaming's Hollywood Poker Open (HPO) kicks off November 12-22 with a Regional stop at Indiana's Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg. The stop features 11 featured events on a 32-event schedule, which is highlighted by a $1,115 Main Event.
PokerNews is excited to announce that we will be returning for Season 4, meaning the PokerNews Live Reporting team will be on hand to capture all the action from the HPO Lawrenceburg Main Event. It also means players will have the opportunity to use the MyStack app to update their hands and chip counts straight into the live blog.

The entire stop will be a part of the HPO Leaderboard promotion where "featured" events award player points, with the winner earning the opportunity to compete against 2003 World Series of Poker champ and HPO ambassador Chris Moneymaker. In addition, both the Main Event and the Leaderboard promotion award winners will be awarded a seat into the HPO $500,000 Guaranteed Championship Event at the M Resort in Las Vegas in June 2016.
"I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to host the Hollywood Poker Open tournament series," said Moneymaker. "Each year the HPO continues to grow and further cements its reputation as one of the leading poker tournaments in the country."
Last year, 35-year-old Jesse McEuen topped a then record-setting field of 207 players to win the HPO Lawrenceburg for $49,676. If that name sounds familiar, it may be because he won a WSOP bracelet back in 2013 when he took down the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Ante Only event for $212,093.
