Don't Miss the Hollywood Poker Open Lawrenceburg Regional Main Event This Weekend

Don't Miss the Hollywood Poker Open Lawrenceburg Regional Main Event This Weekend 0001
  • Hollywood Poker Open is currently at Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg in Indiana. Main Event kicks off this weekend.

Season 4 of the Hollywood Poker Open (HPO) kicked off last week with their Regional stop at Indiana's Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg. This weekend, that stop culminates with the $1,115 Main Event, a tournament PokerNews will be live reporting.

"Season 3 of the HPO was the tour’s biggest yet, and it’s only going to grow," said PokerNews Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters. "Lawrenceburg will be the kickoff of Season 4, and you’ll want to start playing these events early in order to give yourself the best chance to qualify for the HPO Championship next summer in Las Vegas. PokerNews is excited to be providing live coverage of the HPO’s upcoming season and we hope to see you at all of the stops, starting with this one."

Since PokerNews will be on hand, players will have the opportunity to use the MyStack app to update their hands and chip counts straight into the live blog.

One player who will be in action is 2003 World Series of Poker champ Chris Moneymaker, who has once again returned as HPO Ambassador.

"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.
