The day is here and kickoff of the first-ever Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Poker Classic Main Event is just minutes away. The series headliner begins at 11am with a $1,650 buy-in and a $300,000 guarantee. This marks the first of three starting flights in the finale and we’re looking for a big field to build between now and Saturday.

The $1,650 pricepoint and $300,000 guarantee have a history in Tampa with the last two Winter Poker Open Main Events matching those figures. Each of those years, that event drew more than 600 entries generating a total prize pool better than $900,000 and punctuated by a $1,006,500 kitty in 2017.

With those events making its pedigree, the Tampa Poker Classic Main Event is in position for huge success in-season here at the Seminole Hard Rock.

We will catch up with the Main Event when cards go in the air at 11am and bring you tournament updates now until play wraps. Good luck, Main Event players!
