Hollywood Poker Open Championship Set for This Week

Across the US, there are live events taking place all the time. Players are able to compete in major events and begin the steps to creating a poker career. One event set for this year is the Hollywood Poker Open Championship, which kicks off on June 25th. The series will offer several events including the much anticipated Main Event which has a buy-in of $2,500.

The main event will offer a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000 and will begin on the 27th. On the 25th, $235 buy-in satellite will begin at noon and then again at 4pm and 7pm. Satellites will also take place on the 26th and 27th with several events each day. With the satellites, players will be able to earn their seat in the main event for a much lower buy-in. At least one seat will be guaranteed with the satellite so players can attend the main event.

During the event, several pros are expected to compete. Chris Moneymaker, the ambassador of the Hollywood Poker Open, as well as other top pros will be on hand to compete during the main event. The M Resort in Las Vegas will be hosting the event and the event will feature several players who earned their seat via different events.

Players from six regional stops as well as winners from the Season 2 Championship in Las Vegas will be taking part in the event. During this week, the M Resort will be providing eight satellites in no limit hold’em format to give players the opportunity to compete in the guaranteed main event.

Overall, the Hollywood Poker Open will include several events including an Omaha event. According to Gaye Gullo, the Penn National Gaming Vice President of Marketing, the Season 1 of the HPO last year was very successful and the success has continued this year.
