Lucky Hearts Poker Open Dates Set for 2022
The World Poker Tour (WPT) and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida announced the dates and schedule for the 2022 Lucky Hearts Poker Open (LHPO). The 12th edition of the Lucky Hearts Poker Open kicks off on January 13, 2022. Running through January 26, 2022. The annual festival held at Seminole’s southeast Florida resort features 30 events for 2022. Highlighted by a $2,000,000 guaranteed WPT Main Event and a $1,000,000 guaranteed $25,000 High Roller.
Lucky Hearts Poker Open produced some great WPT Champions over the years including 2021’s champion, Ilyas Muradi. Muradi created waves across the poker community with his tear-jerking rags to riches story. The American, who was born in Afghanistan, walked away with $620,000. Muradi scored his first live result on The Hendon Mob just two days before his triumphant win. Since the win, Muradi experienced a great run across 2021 pulling over $1,000,000 off the felt.
Brain Altman also found success at the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood. Twice, in fact. Altman, who picked up his third WPT Main Event title earlier this summer, captured his first two titles in Florida. Altman won the LHPO in 2015 and again in 2020. Rounding out the list of former champions include the likes of Darryl Fish (2018), James Calderaro (2014), Matt Giannetti (2013), and the inaugural WPT LHPO winner, Matthew Juttelstad (2012).
Tony Burns and the crew at Seminole Hard Rock provide the best poker experience for their players. Furthermore, they currently hold several records for WPT Main Event attendance including 2,482 entries at the 2021 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. Which saw the prize pool nearly quadruple the $2,000,000 guarantee.
