$1M guarantee at Seminole Hard Rock Thursday

The second large event in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker open begins Thursday, with $1 million in prize money guaranteed to be distributed among the top finishers.

The event, called a “deep stack” tournament because players start with 25,000 chips, costs $560 to enter. Hopefuls can choose their times – 11 a.m. or 7 p.m. either Thursday, Friday or Saturday – and enter as many times as they want.

The first big event drew 2,888 entrants last week, far short of last year, but still a nice event. The $350 buy-in generated a prize pool of $866,400. Daniel Suied, pictured, was the winner.

Next week is the big one, with $10 million in prize money.
