Hollywood, FL (December 8, 2014) — After making its worldwide introduction in August 2013 during the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open series, WPT Alpha8™ returns to Hollywood, Florida for another televised $ 100,000 buy-in event at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on January 17 and 18, 2015. WPT Alpha8 Florida will feature poker’s top professional players competing alongside the world’s wealthiest amateurs, with unlimited reentries and a massive prize pool. Last year, American Steven Silverman won the historic first WPT Alpha8 event at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, earning more than $ 890,000.

“WPT Alpha8 Florida is another significant poker event that supports our continued efforts of bringing the best in poker play anywhere in the U.S., here, to Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. We are excited to have Seminole Hard Rock as a part of the WPT Alpha8 tour for 2015, and for the opportunity to showcase our new resort amenities opening this winter,” said Larry Frank, general manager of poker operations for Seminole Gaming.

WPT President Adam Pliska adds, “Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is the historic site of our first-ever WPT Alpha8 event, and we are proud to be returning in Season II. We understand that several professional poker players and high rollers will be in and around Florida during the month of January, and WPT Alpha8 Florida offers a convenient way for these players to compete for a massive prize pool in a televised tournament with a fantastic structure from WPT Executive Tour Director Matt Savage.”

For those who want to compete in the exclusive tournament without having to ante up $ 100,000, they can try their luck at winning a seat into WPT Alpha8 Florida by playing in one of several event qualifiers at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
