Event 1 Flight A: Kicking off the Showdown

$570 Deep Stack NLH (Re-Entry)
$1,000,000 Guaranteed | Structure
Level 1: 25/50

The wait is complete and it’s time to start the 2018┬áSeminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown in the new Hard Rock Event Center. The arena space is being used for the first time for a poker series and it will add to the excitement of a series which includes millions in guaranteed money.

The kick-off event is a $570 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament with six starting flights and a $1,000,000 Guaranteed prize pool. Two flights will run each day between now and Saturday with Flight B running this evening at 6 pm.

Each entrant will sit down to a 20,000 starting stack and levels will run 30 minutes long for all starting flights. Late registration is available until the start of Level 9 at 3:30 pm and unlimited re-entries are available during that time. They will continue grinding down from that point and all players with chips at the end of 14 full levels will bag them up for a return on Sunday for Day 2.

It should be a lot of fun today as players get their first look at the new tournament setup. Opening day will be exciting and we look forward to a great series.
