Hooray For Hollywood’s Upcoming Heartland Poker Tour Series

Posted on February 27, 2020

The Heartland Poker Tour will be returning soon to Southern Indiana. The poker series is headed to Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg for a 12-day, 13-event series in early April.

Located just a 20-minute drive west from Cincinnati, Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg proved a popular stop for the HPT last year when the tour made its first visit.

A year ago Gregory Wood topped a 555-entry field in the Main Event to win a $119,101 first-place prize. That field created a prize pool of $532,800 which more than doubled the tournament’s $250,000 guarantee.

This year’s schedule includes a variety of preliminary events with buy-ins ranging from $200 to $300. Among the no-limit hold’em tournaments are multiple deep-stacked events, a couple of bounty events, two seniors events, and a tag team event.

Tournament series features much more than just hold’em

There are also non-hold’em events, including a $300 pot-limit Omaha/Big O event and $200 7-game mixed event (H.O.R.S.E. plus PLO and NLHE). Satellites and other side events will run as well throughout the series.

The series culminates with an $1,100 buy-in Main Event which this time features a larger $300,000 guaranteed prize pool. The tournament features three Day Ones from Friday through Sunday, Apr. 10-12. Each Day One flight will play down to 11% of the field, and everyone who makes the final Day Two on Monday, Apr. 13 will cash.

The Main Event final table will be streamed live on Twitch.tv/HPTpoker, with an estimated start time of 5 p.m. ET. In addition to the first prize, the Main Event winner will also receive a package worth $3,500 to enter the year-end Season XVI HPT Championship Event.
