Poker player appreciation week at Seminole Hard Rock

The Poker Room at Seminole Paradise has declared next week Player Appreciation Week, and with a $10 million guarantee tournament coming up, you can guess what the prizes include.

Yep, entry into that big tournament.

That $10 million guarantee tournament is part of a series taking place Aug. 22-29 at the Seminole Hard Rock. Entry for those who have to pay for a seat will cost $5,300.

I’d be looking for promotions like this at all the Seminole poker rooms from now until the tournament, as a way to build interest in the event. Here’s the rundown for the week at the Seminole Hard Rock:

On Sunday, all regularly scheduled high hands from 12:30 p.m. to midnight will win a seat in a June 8 mega satellite (worth $575). Players can win entry into the $10 million tournament by doing well in the satellite.

On Monday, players who make a full house from noon to 9 p.m. will be entered in an hourly drawing for a $5,300 seat in Day 1A of the $10 million event. Those who make four of a kind or better will get two drawing entries.

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, all regularly scheduled high hands from 10 a.m. to midnight will be doubled.

And on Friday and Saturday, players who make a full house will be entered in drawings at 2, 6 or 10 p.m. for a seat on Day 1A of the $10 million event.
