The Hollywood Poker Open lacks the glamour of the World Series of poker or WPT series, but it gained a lot of traction and is appealing to American players. Truth be told, they don’t have too many options for playing poker over the Internet and the number of prominent tournaments is limited. This tournament takes place in California and last for a total of six months, with action beginning in November and concluding in early June.
That’s why, the interest for this series is on the rise and players were anxiously waiting to see the official list containing the complete schedule. http://99to1.com/category/hollywood-poker-open/ is one of the places where the information transpired first and it looks like poker aficionados have plenty of reasons to be happy about what waiting down the road. In 2014, the number of players increased dramatically and there is no reason to expect anything less from 2015.
We are already preparing for season three, with the first two being mildly successful and this time action will begin on November 13 in Indiana. Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg will act as a gracious host for the opening event, with action then moving to Toledo Ohio, in February. Basically players will have to wait for three months to compete in another major event, therefore the interest for the opening tournament is tremendous.
In 2015, there will be an event scheduled in each month except January, but players will recuperate in February, when to tournaments takes place. Only one is scheduled for March, with the event taking place at the beautiful Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville, while players are expected to travel to Missouri and West Virginia in April. The second to last stop of the series is once again hosted by a casino in Ohio while the Hollywood Poker Open grand final will take place in Las Vegas.
