Seminole Gaming partnered with Poker Stars to give away two Platinum Passes during Hollywood’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open. The first one was given away on the eve of the series by an in-room freeroll while the second one was given away through a random drawing of all SHRPO tournament players. That lucky pass was won by Carlo Rodriguez.

Inclusive of a $25,000 entry as well as travel and hotel accommodations, the Poker Stars Platinum Pass is valued at $30,000. Rodriguez, a South Florida local, will represent Seminole Gaming and its Florida properties at the Poker Stars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship next January in the Bahamas.
