Reasons to play at the Lucky Hearts Poker Open

There is a reason the Stax Poker Lounge is considered one of the premiere poker rooms not only in South Florida but in the entire nation. Comfortable seating, great staff, a dynamite poker room menu, and lots of poker make it a desirable location for any poker player. Whether you want to test out your skills at the lower stakes or take on the high rollers, there is something for everyone.

If that weren’t enough, however, the Lucky Hearts Poker Open is also the first event in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year series. Over the course of 2014 in poker tournaments across the Seminole Hard Rock Florida casinos, players have the opportunity to earn points. The winner of the Player of the Year will take home a staggering first place prize that includes entries into five major poker tournaments as well as Wild Card Elite status for the following year. 2nd through 10th place will also receive great prizes. In total, there will be almost $50,000 worth in prizes handed out. For more information, check out the following page:
