With Liberalization of Florida Poker Laws, WPT Adds Televised Stop at Seminole Hard Rock to Current Season

by Lou on August 19, 2010

Just as an indicator showing how much impact the July 1 law changes in Florida have had for poker in the Sunshine State, the World Poker Tour® (WPT) and Seminole Gaming announced a multi-year alliance, adding a televised stop in to the current WPT Season IX tour schedule.  This will allow players in Florida to participate in a televised $10,000 buy-in WPT tournament at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood from April 27 – May 3, 2011.

Recent changes in state law detailed in previous posts removed caps from betting limits, including tournaments, and have extended the hours of play.  Florida, the fourth most populous state, looks poised to become one of the hottest poker markets in the nation.
