The poker room at Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa is extending its four-of-a-kind promotion through February. Starting at 10 a.m. every day, the first 25 players with quads or better will receive a free entry into the next Super Saturday tournament (a $100 value). The event guarantees $5,000 for first and a $15,000 prize pool. The tournament has been very successful as it has averaged more than 350 players in its first three weeks of existence.
Speaking of tournaments, there are a couple noteworthy events on the horizon at Tampa Hard Rock.
• On Feb. 6 it will host the Brandon Foundation Charity Hold’em Tournament, which has a $250 buy-in and will be at 3 p.m.
• The weekend of April 3-5 will be its Spring Poker Extravaganza. There will be an $1,100 entry fee with a maximum field of 600 players and a guaranteed first-place prize of $100,000. Blind levels will last an hour and you’ll start with 10,000 chips. There will be $100 super satellites every Friday and Sunday at 4 p.m. starting Feb. 1, plus single-table satellites will be available. Last year’s Extravaganza was sold out and paid $170K to the winner.
And finally, the bad-beat jackpot continues to be a huge draw for Hard Rock. Since starting it in February 2008, the poker room has paid out more than $5 million in bad-beat jackpots. The room also continues to pay $100 to any player dealt a royal flush in hearts, diamonds and clubs, plus they’ll get $500 for a royal in spades.
