The World Poker Tour® (WPT) will make a stop at The Poker Room at Seminole Paradise at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino November 19 – 22. Up for grabs is a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool.

The $500,000 WPT Fall Poker Open Championship Event will feature a variety of levels and payoffs. There is a $4,750 buy-in plus $250 entry fee to participate in the tournament. Players will start with 25,000 in tournament chips and have an optional $30 add-on for 5,000 units Levels will last 60 minutes with final table levels at 90 minutes.

Earlier this year, the WPT and Seminole Gaming announced a multi-year partnership adding several WPT branded events and the development of official WPT Poker Rooms inside select Seminole Casinos.

Recent changes in state law have removed caps from poker games, including tournaments, and have relaxed rules on hours of play.  As a result, Florida, the 4th most populous state in the U.S., appears destined to become one of the hottest poker markets. In addition, Seminole Casino poker rooms will now be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  They offer 1,360 poker seats at six Florida casinos, far surpassing other card rooms in the state.

On-site registration for the $500,000 WPT Fall Poker Open Championship Event ends on Day 1A, Friday, November 19 at the end of Level 2 and on Day 1B on Saturday, November 20 at the end of Level 2. (Registration fee in non-refundable.) To participate, players must obtain a “Wild Card” at the Player’s Club or in The Poker Room at Seminole Paradise.
