  1. August is the time to go 'Big' or go home. The 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open takes place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL and will run from August 1-13 with a 27-event schedule culminating in the return of their four featured tournaments, dubbed ‘The Big 4’. The schedule gets off to a fast start with a multi-flight $1 million guaranteed $600 DeepStack and is followed by a full slate of tournaments with wide-ranging variants and buy-ins that will attract every level of player, leading up to the starting dates of The Big 4. The Big 4 Since 2015, the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open has hosted The Big 4, four individual tournaments that all play down to a final table together so they can be live-streamed on the same day at the same time. This year the Big 4 include: $5,250 SHRPO Championship - $3 million guarantee $2,650 NLHE - $1 million guarantee $1,100 NLHE - $500,000 guarantee $25,500 High Rollers - $2 million guarantee. Since 2013, SHRPO has been a favorite destination for poker pros from all over the world. Headed into their fifth year of the The Big 4 promotion, organizers are looking forward to making 2019 the biggest Big 4 yet with all eyes on the $5,250 Main Event. $5,250 SHRPO Championship In 2014, the year before SHRPO Championship was a part of The Big 4, Daniel Colman took down the $5,300 tournament for $1.44 million. The $5 million guaranteed SHRPO Championship event drew 907 runners in 2015 and the big story was that Colman returned to the final table, looking to go back-to-back and defend his 2014 SHRPO Championship title. In the end Colman couldn’t get there, falling in third place for $310,000 as Omar Zazay went on to win the $1,000,000 first-place prize for a career-high score. Pennsylvania’s Paul Volpe also made an appearance at this final table, but he ended up hitting the rail in eighth place for $100,000. Even though registration dipped in 2016, the tournament still held a $5 million guarantee. That meant there was a healthy overlay for the field of top-tier players who made the trip. Ryan Fair and Joe Serock joined regular high rollers Seth Davies and Jason Koon at the final table where Koon ended up taking home the title and his very first seven-figure score of $1 million. In 2017, the tournament reduced the guarantee to $3 million when Australia’s Martin Kozlov picked up the largest cash of his career by winning the $754,083 first-place prize. Matt Berkey finished in third place this year while Aaron Mermelstein, Adam Levy, and Joe Kuether all also had a seat at the final table. Then, just last year, Brandon Eisen denied Jeremy Ausmus the title in 2018, taking home $771,444 for the win. Familiar faces Joseph Cheong, Jared Griener and Ryan D’Angelo also made the final table in what was the largest SHRPO Championship field in The Big 4 era with 914 runners. Big Buy-In, Big Moments The Big 4 have had plenty of standout performances outside of the Main Event over the years. As one might expect, the $25K High Roller has always been flush with big-name pros looking to take home six-figure scores. In 2015, Florida’s All-Time Money List leader, Jason Mercier, took down the $25K High Roller for over $517K in his own backyard, surviving an all-star final table that included runner-up Ian O’Hara, Sean Winter, Ankush Mandavia, Barry Hutter, David ‘Doc’ Sands, and Phil Laak. One year later, Marvin Rettenmaier denied Daniel Colman another SHRPO title by taking first place and over $787K. John Andress took home the High Roller title in 2017 and then in 2018, Jake Schindler topped the 123 player field for a score of over $800K after defeating Shaun Deeb heads up. Another amazing Big 4 feat has been the performance of the GPI #1-ranked player Alex Foxen who, in 2017 took down the $2,650 NLHE for $204,600 and then followed that up by defending his title in that even in 2018 for another $208,452. All the action from the 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open begins on August 1 with all four of the Big 4 set to be live-streamed on August 13. 2019 SHRPO Schedule of Events DATE EVENT # EVENT TIME BUY-IN 8/1 1A Deep Stack NLH Flight A (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 11:00 AM $600 8/1 1B Deep Stack NLH Flight B (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 6:00 PM $600 8/2 1C Deep Stack NLH Flight C (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 11:00 AM $600 8/2 1D Deep Stack NLH Flight D (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 6:00 PM $600 8/3 1E Deep Stack NLH Flight E (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 11:00 AM $600 8/3 1F Deep Stack NLH Flight F (Re-Entry) - $1,000,000 GTD 6:00 PM $600 8/4 1 Day 2 1:00 PM -- 8/1 2 Omaha 8 Or Better (Re-Entry) - $30,000 GTD - One Day Event 12:00 PM $400 8/2 3 H.O.R.S.E.

  2. [caption width="640"] Jason Koon won last year's SHRPO Championship as part of The Big 4. (Card Player photo)[/caption] Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, FL is one of the premier poker destinations in the United States and its largest series of the year is currently underway. The Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open (SHRPO) is firmly established as can’t-miss for any player, whether recreational or professional. In 2015, The Big 4 premiered at SHRPO to great fanfare and is back for the third straight year this series. The Big 4 is four tournaments of different buy ins and structures that will have their respective final table live streamed over Twitch simultaneously on Tuesday, August 15. The tournaments are as follows in order of buy in size: $1,100 entry, $500,000 guaranteed $2,650 entry, $1,000,000 guaranteed $5,250 entry, $3,000,000 guaranteed (SHRPO Championship) $25,500 entry, $2,000,000 guaranteed (SHRPO High Roller) The buy-ins are the same from the previous two years but feature a few structure adjustments, with the SHRPO Championship seeing the biggest facelift. The $1,100 event starts on Wednesday, August 9 and will reach the final table in one day. All levels on Day 1 are 30 minutes with players starting with 15,000 chips. All final table levels are 90 minutes, with the exception of heads up play, where the levels are reduced to 60 minutes. The former SHRPO Championship that was once a freezeout, is now re-entry for this year. The $5,250 buy in that has had guarantees of $5,000,000 and $10,000,000 in previous years is now $3,000,000. The main event of the SHRPO series has a starting flight on Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12. The SHRPO Championship is a four-day event and Day 3 will be played until the nine-handed final table is reached. At the price point of $2,650, the $1,000,000 guaranteed event is the only freezeout on the 2017 schedule. The three-day event starts on Sunday, August 13 and will play out over consecutive days to the Big 4 final table. Finally, the $25,500 High Roller is the second-highest buy in of SHRPO, behind the two-day $50,000 Super High Roller on August 8-9. The High Roller is also two days with Day 1 starting on August 14. The SHRPO Championship has crowned high profile winners in recent years with Dan Colman and Jason Koon taking down the title in 2014 and 2016, respectively. Seminole Hard Rock is on every list of great tournament series and the 2017 edition of SHRPO should put together another elite grouping of final tables that will play out at once for the whole world to see.
