South Florida will have a busy summer this year as the World Poker Tour (WPT) will hold a poker showdown at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino between April 13 and May 2. The 61-event poker series will suit all types of players.
The WPT attracts many players and has a huge prize pool for each event. Gaming analysts are predicting that the upcoming showdown will break its previous turnout records.
The Seminole Hard Rock Is an Ideal Host for the Showdown
Mark Davis is the 2022 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown champion. He bagged more than $1 million after beating 2,009 opponents in the tournament.
Florida has grown to be a popular poker destination in the country since the Coronavirus pandemic. Most of its tournaments attract 1,000 to 2,000 entrants. Besides, they have big and irresistible prize pools.
The $3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship is among the most prestigious local tournaments. It has a $3 million guarantee and attracts recreational, professional, and regular WPT players.
Qualified players will set a six-handed final table on May 2. Then, the game will pause until May 25 when it will continue at Luxor's HyperX Esports Arena.
Does the Poker Showdown Offer Value?
The 61-tournament series offers poker players a lot of value. The $400 DeepStack No-Limit Hold'em began on April 13 with a $500,000 pot. It had six starting plights on Day 1 that offered players many opportunities to enter various sessions.
The $200 buy-in hold 'em event will kick off on April 17 having six starting flights and a $150,000 pot. Individuals who are interested in high rollers can sign up for the $10,000 DeepStack No-Limit Hold'em that will occur on April 25. The $50,000 Super High Roller will begin on April 26 and the $25,500 High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha will take place on April 27.
Several Top Vloggers Will Engage in the Showdown
Andrew Neeme and Brad Owen are WPT ambassadors who will entertain their fans with the Meet-Up Game (MUG) on April 19 at the Seminole Hard Rock. Their supporters will have a chance to compete with them in a $2/$4 cash game.
The two ambassadors like rotating tables in the session for everyone to compete with them for a while. The games are more thrilling and relaxed than ordinary cash games. Moreover, the casino will deal different cards and offer an assortment of drinks.
Are South Florida Beaches Worth Visiting?
Southern California and Hilton Head Island are among the most renowned holiday destinations in the U.S. due to their beautiful beaches. But South Florida beaches have an edge over them because of their white sand and large surface area.
They start from Key West to Miami, near Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale. So, Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown diehards will have many options to spend their free time.
