With there a whole host of events to look forward to in 2013, the PCA, the Aussie Millions, a couple of EPT and WPT stops, another one has just announced its schedule, with the Hollywood Poker Open Championship Event announcing its plans with regards to their stop at the M Resort which is in Las Vegas.
With players now seemingly putting their feet up like the rest of us for the festive season, they will also have their eyes on what poker tournaments will be coming up in 2013. It heralds a brand new start for many of the players that would have felt that they didn’t quite perform as well as they should have this year, with them now believing that with a fresh start they can enjoy a more fruitful time.
The tournament is set to kick off on the 28th of June and the Main Event will be a $2,500 buy-in affair which will be concluded on the 30th of the same month.
If that buy-in is a little too steep for you, there will be three separate regional events at the M Resort starting on the 25th of January. There will be seats into the Hollywood Poker Open for the best performers of these events, with the variation being No Limit Holdem.
25th Jan – $125 – 5 Seats On Offer With A Guarantee of $10k
26th January – $225 – 5 Seats on Offer With A Guarantee Of $20k
27th January – $335 – 2 Seats On Offer With A Guarantee Of $40k
Each of the regional events will have prize pool guarantees, with even players that do not quite make it into the Championship event most likely walking away with a handsome profit. Additionally, if these buy-ins are still on a little bit of an expensive size for your poker bankroll, there will also be satellites into the regional events for just $55.
The HPO is a new and exciting poker series that has been launched in the USA, with many predicting it to become an established and respected tour.
With online poker not being on the menu in the USA, live events seem to be the bread and butter for players that do not plan on moving out of the country in order to get their regular online poker fix. This means there is now a huge demand for more and more live poker tours, though how long they can keep online poker outlawed really is a matter of time…isn’t it?
