Everything is set and ready to go, so it’s time to shuffle up and deal! After a preliminary walk through the room we’ve found some familiar faces. Those who are in attendance at the start of the play include, Harrison Gimbel, Darren Elias, Shannon Shorr, Jesse Chinni, Justin Young and Event 13 winner James Romero.
We are almost through the preliminary portion of the 2018 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open schedule and today brings the last two events before the Championship. Kicking things off at noon is a tournament many will use to prep their A-game before the $3 Million Guarantee Championship starts tomorrow.
Event 17 is a $2,200 No Limit Hold’em event with an eight-handed format, big blind ante structure, and $200,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Entrants start with 20,000 deep stacks and the tournament runs 30-minute levels. Late registration is available until the start of Level 12 at 6:40pm at the end of the dinner break but players are limited to a single re-entry.
Once they return from dinner, players will begin playing down towards our last big winner before the Championship starts.
