WPT schedule stops at Seminole Hard Rock

 The World Poker Tour has released the dates for the rest of this season, and they include the annual televised stop at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood and three non-televised visits to Seminole Casino Coconut Creek.

  The Seminole Hard Rock main event will carry a $10 million guarantee, similar to the casino's own main event in August. The WPT dates are April 11-17.

  Coconut Creek picked up the Lucky Hearts Poker open from the Hollywood Seminole Hard Rock, a non-telvised event Feb. 7-12. Regional stops are Jan. 22-27 and May 21-26.

  Bookending the remainder of Season XII are two stops at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa, which after the recent WPT Borgata Poker Open, is now home to four of the five largest events in World Poker Tour history. The 2014 schedule begins in Atlantic City, New Jersey with the televised WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open before heading to Seminole Casino Coconut Creek for the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open in February.

In March, WPT heads to California for two televised events – the iconic LA Poker Classic and the unique WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star – before heading back to Jacksonville, Florida for the WPT bestbet Open. In April, the tour makes its third stop in the Sunshine State when it heads to Hollywood for the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown which, like last August’s highly successful Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, will carry a massive $10 million guarantee on the championship event. From Florida, the WPT heads back up the East Coast to Borgata and the season-ending, $15,400 buy-in WPT World Championship sponsored by partypoker.

 The first part of the WPT season was announced earlier this year. Go to WorldPokerTour.com.
