The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / WPT: Event at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa reaches $1 million guarantee

WPT: Event at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa reaches $1 million guarantee

Publish Date: 09/04/2022
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

The World Poker Tour at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa recently announced that the main tour event had reached the $1 million guarantee prior to the players taking their initial break in the $3,500 buy-in. The news was made public by the WPT executive tour director Matt Savage.

In less than an hour following the disclosure of the $1 million guarantee, 50 additional gamers have reportedly signed up. The competition will end with a six-player final table on Wednesday, September 7.

The World Poker Tour Legends of Poker event, which Joshua Pollock won for $573,350 at Parkwest Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles, has concluded on Thursday, only less than a day after it began.

As a result, some of the 642 participants in the Legends of Poker event are presumably making their way to Florida for the Seminole Hard Rock tournament.

According to PokerNews, Savage wanted the field to reach 1,000 participants, which would increase the prize fund to more than $3,2 million.

Brian Altman, the defending winner of this competition, got off to an anticipated strong start. On Thursday, Altman quickly increased his initial chip stack of 50,000 to 80,000.

Altman is also the only player who has triumphed in three WPT competitions held in the same state. Therefore, he is seeking to become only the second four-time World Poker Tour champion.

In 2015 and 2020, he won the Hollywood and Florida’s Lucky Hearts Poker Open. In addition, he also earned $613,225 in June 2021 in the inaugural WPT tournament held at the Central Florida card room.

The WPT Wynn World Championship, the first $15 million guaranteed tournament in live poker history, will also take place in December as part of the World Poker Tour’s 20th season celebration. Additionally, other significant events are also scheduled for the remainder of the year.
