Rafael Reis, defending champion

The clock is nearing 11am and we are ready to kick off the 2017 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood with a big tournament. The opening event of the 2016 RRPO was a huge success and the tournament broke the record for the biggest field in Florida Poker history and we will be going for it again this year.

Last year’s event drew 5,018 entries and Seminole Hard Rock Poker regular Rafael Reis walked away with the title for more than $150,000 over a tough final table.

And this year we tweaked the opener to put the Ultimate Re-Entry format into play. Unlike previous runs, tournament players may enter as many of the eight starting flights as they wish and they can advance multiple stacks onto Day 2. They will play their biggest stack on Sunday and pick up a $2,500 multi-stack award payout for the other stacks they advanced.

Each flight will continue action until only 10% of the starting field remains (rounding down) and all players making it into Day 2 will return already in the money, so there will be a lot of players collecting payouts Sunday afternoon.

Action kicks off at the top of the hour with players sitting down to 15,000 stacks and 30-minute levels throughout the day. Late registration is open until the start of Level 13 at 5:45pm with unlimited re-entries during that time. If you would prefer to start fresh at the beginning, the evening flight will start at 5pm.

They will continue playing until they are in the money with 10% of the field remaining later this evening. Those players will have their stack inventoried instead of bagged and they will return to their biggest stack on Sunday for Day 2.
