This places the tournament in the records, as featuring the biggest poker guarantee in the history of Southwest Florida.

The 2017-2018 Season hosted by the Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee is planned to last 10 days, from the 1st until the 10th September, and the tournament’s finale is going to be eligible with equal importance in the World Poker Tour DeepStacks and the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year competitions. This brings even more benefits for the players taking part in it since they have the realistic chance to win a title, which will propel them ahead in their careers.

In the schedule listed there are five actual events during this World Poker Tour DeepStacks in which the poker enthusiasts can test their good fortune, as well as a number of additional events and satellites available for participating. The first day of the tournament will present to the participants a multi-day $350 Buy-in event which boasts a prize pool which amounts to $30,000. They will have time to practice their skills until the $1,100 Main Event, which is scheduled to commence on the 8th of September and has the potential to become one of the most popular events among the poker players in Southwest Florida.

The much-anticipated prize awaiting the winner of the tournament will feature a $3,000 package to the World Poker Tour DeepStacks Championship which will be the final event for this season. Rick O’Connell, Seminole Casino Hotel Poker Manager, stated that introducing a global brand such as this one is quite the feat for a location like Southwest Florida, and the team responsible for the event is more than proud to be able to provide poker players with this valuable experience.

In addition to the daily events, there will be also nightly turbo series, aiming to allow the participants to amass points and climb the Turbo Series Leaderboard. Whoever reaches the first place will be granted a $1,000 seat to the final WPTDeepStacks Immokalee Main Event.
