The Summer Heater Poker Series will consist of 11 events, culminating with the $1,500 buy-in Summer Heater Main Event running Aug. 19-21.

With Omaha and mixed game events and buy-ins ranging from $260 to the $1,500 Main Event, the Summer Heater Poker Series is one Florida grinders don't want to miss.

Bounties & H.O.E.s

The bestbet Summer Heater Poker Series will kick off with a $400 No-Limit Hold'em event that will be sure to draw a big field and prize pool as it offers players five starting flights to choose from.

Next on the schedule is another $400 NLH event, this one with a bounty component where players will earn $100 for every opponent they eliminate.

Later in the series will be a variety of mixed game events, including a $300 H.O.E. event consisting of Limit Hold'em Omaha 8 or Better and Stud 8 or Better, as well as a $300 Big O event and a $500 Pot-Limit Omaha event.

But the biggest event of them all will be the Summer Heater Main Event, which has two starting flights and will see players beginning with a stack of 25,000 and blinds at 100/200. Levels will increase every 40 minutes and both starting flights will end when 12.5% of players remain in each field.

Day 2 of the Main Event will commence on Aug. 21 and will pay down to a winner, who will take home the bulk of the prize pool and the trophy. The final table will be live-streamed by bestbetLIVE on Twitch and YouTube.

The Summer Heater Poker Series will close out with a $500 NLH event on Aug. 21. For more information about the series, visit
