Cards are back in the air after the first break and we have our early frontrunner. Northeast grinder Anthony Cuffari came down to the Sunshine State for some Ultimate Re-Entry action and he ran his 15,000 starting stack over 80,000 in four levels.
Cuffari has several tournament wins in the colder climates, including a Borgata Saturday Series win in October, but he is down here looking for his first SHRP cash.

We are almost through two hours of play in the Ultimate Re-Entry event and the entry count cruised over 300 before the first break. With late registration open until 5:45pm, there’s plenty of time for players to get down to the Event Center.
We have a lot of talent here early on the first day including SHRP favorites Sheddy Siddiqui, Jason Young, and Mark Dube (who won back-to-back 2018 SHRPO events in August).
The new year is here and we are kicking off our first big series of 2019 with the Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open. It features 25 great events over the next 13 days and we are going big right out of the gates.
Event 1 is the return of the popular Ultimate Re-Entry tournament that will attract thousands of players and create a huge prize pool. The tournament has a $360 buy-in with a $500,000 Guarantee and eight starting flights. In addition to the standard payouts, players also have a chance to bank some money if they survive more than one flight.
Unlike most tournaments, players may enter as many of the eight flights as they wish. If they advance more than one stack for Day 2 on Monday, they will play their biggest bag and we will pay them $2,500 for every other one that makes it through.
Flight A starts at 11am in the Event Center and each player will sit down to a 15,000 starting stack. Late registration and unlimited re-entries are available later than normal as well, this time registration will close at the start of Level 13 at 5:45pm.
All starting flights will also play down to the money. Each flight will end when 10% of the starting field remains, rounding down, and all of them will return for Day 2 already set to go to the payout desk.
This is a great way to start the series and we expect one of the biggest fields in Florida poker history by the time registration closes late Sunday evening.
