Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown 2021 Gathers Record Number Of Entries


The World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown 2021 managed to attract a total of 2,482 entries, thus resulting in a new record for the largest field of players in World Poker Tour’s main event history. It beat the largest live World Poker Tour field that was held in 2014, drawing 1,795 entries.

The last record that was established in the history of World Poker Tours was in the World Poker Tour Online Championship held in May 2020 which saw 2,130 entries. Whereas, the largest live World Poker Tour event prior to this event was the SHR Poker Showdown, held in 2014 which drew 1,795 entries. Among the five largest fields in World Poker Tour history, the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood accounts for four of them, with the 2021 Lucky Hearts Poker Open and the 2015 Seminole Hard Rock Poker showdown drawing 1,573 and 1,476 entries, respectively.

The world record turnout resulted in a prize pool of USD 79,42,400, nearly four times the USD 2 Million that was placed on the event. The 311 finishers at the top were set to make a min-cash of USD 6,195 and a prize of USD 12,61,095 would be handed over to the champion. All the top 11 finishers would earn six-figure paydays in this USD 3,500 buy-in event.

The tournament highlighted two starting flights, with day 1A drawing 1,047 entries and day 1B adding another 1,435. At the end of the two flights, it was just 847 players that were left.

The event’s final table is set for today. The event will set off with the last six players to resume action at PokerGo Studio in Las Vegas on May 18. The entire action will be recorded to be filmed later on for a television broadcast.
