Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Concludes; Championship Final Six Head to Las Vegas

The 2019 World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown ran April 4th through the 17th at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood. The series crowned 28 trophy winners and was highlighted by the $3,500 buy-in, $3,000,000 guaranteed Championship.

As part of WPT’s Season XVII initiative, the Championship played down to the final six and bagged and tagged set to return May 30th at the HyperX ESports Arena in Las Vegas to compete for a $715,175 prize. Leading the way is James Carroll, but he’s trailed by a slew of notables including Maria Ho in second.
