The 2022 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open (SHRPO) is less than a week away from kicking off at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The 9th edition of the annual event is set to get underway on July 27th and runs through August 9th. This year’s festival features 45 trophy events with over $7,000,000 in guaranteed prize money, headlined by the $5,300 SHRPO Championship.

The action begins with a $400 Deep Stack event offering 8 starting flights and $1,000,000 guaranteed. There’s also a $2,700 Deep Stack boasting a $1,000,000 guarantee and three PokerGO Tour events; a $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller on August 3rd, a $50,000 Super High Roller on August 4th, and a $25,000 High Roller starting August 8th that carries a $2,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. 

$3,000,000 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Championship Event

The main attraction is of course the SHRPO No-Limit Hold’em Championship and its $3,000,000 guarantee. There are two starting flights for the $5,300 main event which allows a single re-entry per flight. Day 1A kicks off on August 5th at 11am with Day 1B on August 6th.

Players will look to join Dimitri Vorbe (2021), Sean Winter (2019), Brandon Eisen (2018), Martin Kozlov (2017), Jason Koon (2016), Omar Zazay (2015), Daniel Colman (2014), and Blair Hinkle (2013) as champions of the prestigious event.

In 2021, the championship event attracted a total of 1180 entries, nearly doubling the $3,000,000 guarantee. The opening event also smashed its guarantee after 3,730 buyins were tallied. More than $21,000,000 was awarded throughout the 2021 festival.
