SHRPO Flashback in Time

Event 1 - Plaques

As we head into a new decade, we thought we would take a look back through the history of the major Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood series over the years and some of the huge milestones we hit in 2019.

A typical year in SHR Poker includes four major series with a single exception, a one-time run of the WSOP Circuit in 2017. Throughout the year, we have the Lucky Hearts Poker Open early followed by the Poker Showdown in the spring. Summer brings the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open (Summer Splash prior to 2013) and the Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open closes out the year.

They include huge guarantees, bursting prize pools, and massive fields along with a variety of non-Hold’em games to mix things up. With the conclusion of the RRPO, there were two milestones we hit in 2019.

  • During the 2019 SHRPO series, the combined prize pool of all major series, primary events hit $260,307,625. More than one-quarter of a billion (that is billion with a B) in prize money awarded.
  • During the 2019 RRPO series, the combined entry count went over 300,000 in total for all major series, primary events.

Pulling statistics from the 2010 Poker Showdown up to the 2019 RRPO series, here are some of the big numbers that have been posted:

From 2018 Showdown through 2019 SHRPO, the Hard Rock Event Center was our series home

Top five biggest fields

  • 5,018 entries – 2016 RRPO Event 1
  • 4,756 entries – 2017 LHPO Event 1

  • 4,558 entries – 2018 RRPO Event 1
  • 4,508 entries – 2019 LHPO Event 1

Top six biggest single flights

  • 1,222 entries – 2016 Showdown Championship
  • 1,207 entries – 2017 Showdown Championship
  • 1,060 entries – 2013 SHRPO Championship Flight C
  • 1,014 entries – 2018 RRPO Event 1 Flight G
  • 1,009 entries – 2019 RRPO Event 1 Flight G
  • 1,009 entries – 2016 RRPO Event 1 Flight H
Rafael Reis won RRPO Event 1 in 2016, the biggest field in Florida poker history

  • David Prociak – 7
  • Brian Altman – 5
  • Gabriel Ramos – 5
  • Julio Fernandez – 5
  • Michael Laake – 5
  • Michael Newman – 5
  • Four-way tie – 4
2013 SHRPO Champ Blair Hinkle won our single biggest payout for $1,745,245

Million Dollar Champions

  • Blair Hinkle, 2013 SHRPO – $1,745,245
  • Dan Colman, 2014 SHRPO – $1,446,710
  • Taylor von Kriegenbergh, 2011 Showdown – $1,122,340
  • Eric Afriat, 2014 Showdown – $1,081,184
  • Griffin Paul, 2015 Showdown – $1,000,000
  • Omar Zazay, 2015 SHRPO – $1,000,000
  • Jason Koon, 2016 SHRPO – $1,000,000

We continue to provide our players with some of the top festivals in the game and look forward to building on our tradition with the 2020 Lucky Hearts Poker Open in January.
