2018 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Day 1A: Massive First Day Crowd Promises for Huge Field

On Friday in the cavernous tournament arena at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, Day 1A of the World Poker Tour’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown took place. The massive outpouring of players for the first day of action promises that there will be a huge field for the tournament and that the guaranteed prize pool of $ 3 million will be shattered. With the $ 3 million guaranteed prize pool, that meant that the $ 3500 buy in tournament had to rack up roughly 895 players (taking out the juice) for the Seminole Indians not to be on the hook for the difference.

By the end of the first level of fourteen for the day, the field jumped up to 183 and showed little signs of slowing down. Among those taking their patch of felt were players who had previously been entered in the tournament.

Thus, the European Poker Tour’s stop in Prague, the Czech Republic at the Hilton Prague Hotel is a welcome sight for the crème of European poker as the battle it out for the final EPT championship of 2015. After the two-Day Ones for the World Poker Tour drew in 255 total entries last week, there was some concern over the potential for the EPT event (the different buy-ins, €3000 for the WPT and €5000 for the EPT, also brought reason for concern). Those concerns would prove to be for naught, however, as the tables around the Hilton Prague were stocked with players from around the world. Neil Blumenfield, the third place finisher at this year’s World Series of Poker Championship Event, was on the
