The first-ever Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player-of-the-Year (SHRP POY) race is underway with the Lucky Hearts Poker Open tournament series at Seminole Coconut Creek. And players are taking notice.

“That’s awesome,” says WSOP bracelet holder Marsha Wolak (Ft. Lauderdale).  “It’s really an incentive to play all the places, including Tampa.”

The SHRP POY race incorporates all events held during designated Seminole Hard Rock Poker tournament series which includes Coconut Creek, Hard Rock Hollywood and Hard Rock Tampa.

The 2014 Player of the Year Winner will receive a prize package valued at more than $30,000 and includes entries into future Seminole Hard Rock Poker tournaments.

“That’s pretty cool,” says Tom Gleason (W. Palm Beach) while hearing about the new points system for the first time when Wolak raves about the format.

Gleason is above the chip average with his 42k stack, while Wolak, who won the 2011 WSOP Ladies Event for $192,000, has half the 25k starting stack.
