Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown beginning 15 April

10 March 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and World Poker Tour (WPT) is celebrating its 10-year partnership of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown kicking off on Thursday, 15 April. Primary events kick off with the $600 Deep Stack NLH featuring six opening flights and a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool. The tournament will conclude with the $3,500 WPT NLH Championship boasting at $2 million guarantee. The final six players of the championship event will reconvene on May 18 in Las Vegas for a televised final table.

Players will find safe and socially distant tournament play with the Hard Rock’s Safe + Sound initiative. In addition to thermal temperature scanning upon entry and mandatory masks/face coverings policy for all guests and team members, all tables are outfitted with protective Plexiglas between dealer and players, and in between players. There will be a total of 80 tables spaced out between two of the resort’s largest ballrooms to encourage social distancing. Each table will be played eight-handed, as opposed to the standard nine-handed. All chips and cards will undergo routine cleaning, and all areas will be sanitized once a player leaves the table and before another sits.

The Safe + Sound program was developed by a team of hospitality and gaming experts in collaboration with worldwide health and sanitation specialists, such as Ecolab and NSF International, and includes directives of key agencies, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Safe + Sound focuses on enhanced cleaning practices, social interactions and workplace protocols. All Hard Rock properties are required to pass a 272-point inspection independently assessed by NSF International.

WPT and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood recently partnered for the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open, which became the second-largest live event field in WPT Main Tour history with 1,573 entries.

Other highlight events in this year’s 2021 Poker Showdown schedule include:
  • $50,000 Super High Roller (Single Re-Entry), Wednesday, 21 April
  • $2,200 Deep Stack NLH (Re-Entry) $200,000 Guaranteed, Thursday, 22 April
