2018 RRPO Recap with Record-Setting Championship Field

2003 WSOP Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker was among the 2018 RRPO trophy winners

The World Poker Tour made its first appearance at our November Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open” series and the Championship headlined a great two weeks of tournaments.

Seven of the 19 primary events were non-hold’em tournaments and the response from the poker community was strong. Chris Moneymaker, 2003 WSOP Main Event champion, won an event on the first day of the series and Raminder Singh won yet another SHRP trophy. Poker pro David Peters won the $5,000 one-day No Limit Hold’em tournament for the second straight year and Trung Pham won the massive opening event defeating over 4,558 entries.

2018 RRPO champion Pavel Plesuv

But the highlight of the series was the record-setting Championship. The 858 entries in the tournament marked the largest RRPO Championship field in our history and it attracted players from around the world. Czech Republic’s Pavel Plesuv went wire-to-wire at the WPT live-streamed final table to put his name on the WPT Champions Cup.
