Florida has quickly become one of the leading high-stakes poker destinations in the world as World Poker Tour will hold three WPT Main Events in the state over the next three months. In April, WPT returns for the second edition of the televised Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Last year’s event attracted 433 runners and a massive prize pool of $4,156,800. The following week World Poker Tour will revisit Jacksonville, this time for a televised WPT Main Event in the brand new BestBet Jacksonville poker complex, scheduled to open this March.
In addition to these Season X tour stops, WPT is also hosting two WPT Regional Series events next month in Florida. The first takes place at the Seminole Hard Rock in Coconut Creek and is followed by a three day tournament at the Derby Lane Poker Room in St. Petersburg.
