Live Tournament Updates
Welcome to the Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open
Level 1: 50-100, ante
As WPT Venice Grand Prix wraps up, a new World Poker Tour stop is just getting going in Hollywood, Florida. The tour is paying its second visit to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino for the first-ever Lucky Hearts Poker Open.
The $3,500 buy-in non-televised Main Event gets underway at 12pm ET today with the first of two starting days. Should a player bust out on Day 1A, they will have the option to re-enter and try again on Day 1B. There should be plenty of reasons to fire a second bullet if you need to, as this tournament features a $750,000 guarantee.
Tony Ruberto, who won the WPT Jacksonville event back in November, is here and looking to repeat his Florida success. WPT Player of the Year frontrunner Will Failla, reigning WPT Player of the Year Andy Frankenberger, Jonathan Little, Todd Terry, and Matt Waxman are some of the other players who will be taking part in the event.
Once again, Day 1A gets going at 12pm ET. Keep checking back in for all the updates and the action.
