First WPT Main Tour stop coming to Florida casino

26 May 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- First ever World Poker Tour main tour event is coming to Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa kicking off on Wednesday, 9 June and runs through Tuesday, 22 June after a run of WPTDeepStacks events dating back to June 2016. Primary events kick off with a $500 Buy-in featuring seven opening flights and a $1 Million guarantee opener. The main event will take place Friday, 18 June through Tuesday, 22 June with a $3,500 Buy-in and a $2 Million guarantee.

Players will find safe and socially distant tournament play with the Hard Rock’s Safe + Sound initiative. In addition to thermal temperature scanning upon entry and mandatory masks/face coverings policy for all guests and team members, all tables are outfitted with protective Plexiglas between dealer and players, and in between players. Each table will be played eight-handed, as opposed to the standard nine-handed to encourage social distancing.
