Event 1 Flight A: Defending Champ

Level 3:  100/200 with a 200 ante

Fernando Rodriguez

Flight A is quickly filling with most tables in the Seminole Ballroom in action as we head to the afternoon hours. The re-entries are helping to pile up the numbers as the unique player number plateaus.

We found defending champion Fernando Rodriguez in the game early and trying to go back-to-back. We had more than 3,000 entries in Event 1 of the Lucky Hearts Poker Open and Rodriguez walked away with $205,000 after a three-way deal at the final table.

Thomas Gari

Flight A put another 100 entries into the field over the first level with more to come. The field will likely hit the 480 unique player cap before registration closes but players who make it into Flight A will still have a single re-entry available to them until 2:30 pm.

Thomas Gari was here early and representing the local regulars. He went deep in this tournament in January and adding another four-figure score during our February Big Slick tournament.

The time has come to roll out another big series as we kick off the 2021 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown with a huge opening, multi-flight tournament. Starting at 10 am, we have the first of six flight for Event 1 and we expect a lot of players over the weekend.

The tournament has a $600 buy-in with a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool. Players will start with 20,000 deep stacks and all levels will last 30 minutes during the starting flights and increase to 40 minutes on Day 2. Late registration is available until the start of Level 9 at 2:30 pm with a single re-entry option available during that time. The field will be capped at 480 unique players with only re-entries available if that number is reached.

The field will continue to play down until only 12.5% of the starting field is reached. Those players will return on Sunday at 2 pm for Day 2 already in the money.
