Flight A is very close to pushing the entry count over 500 and it should get there easily with more than an hour remaining to get in the game. That is a huge start to the series and way above what we’ve seen in the past for the start of this tournament.
More friends showed up to take part including Daniel Pearlman, seven-time SHRP Hollywood champ Raminder Singh, and Tampa regular Walter Rossi.

RRPO players will experience a location change from the last few series. It’s been several years since the last card was dealt in the Grand Ballroom but we are back to where it all started a decade ago.
The 2018 Lucky Hearts Poker Open was the last series we played in this room before moving our action over to the Event Center and Seminole Ballroom. Now we return to the Grand Ballroom, closer to the casino action, and underway with 70 tables ready to be put in play.
In addition to the change of venue, there is also a new area for tournament registration. The registration desk is now located at the former Fresh Harvest buffet (across from Constant Grind) for an easy stop on the way to the Ballroom.
Note: if you have not played with us since October 25, it is recommended that you stop at one of the many player’s card kiosks in the casino to make sure your Seminole Wild Card is up to date.
