The Hollywood Poker Open (HPO) is underway and there are free tickets to be won for the championship event happening in Las Vegas. To win seats, people can participate in the region events of the festival and the latest one is happening from 26th March to 5th April 2015 in Granville, Pennsylvania.
The HPO action in Granville
The HPO event in Grantville is held at the fancy Hollywood Casino. There are 32 events in total at this regional stop; 11 of which are sponsored by HPO. Tickets to the main event can be won at these sponsored events. The highlight of the HPO stop at Grantville is the presence of 2003 WSOP winner Chris Moneymaker. He is also the brand ambassador of the HPO. All the action from the event will be covered by PokerNews through live blogging. The main regional events are worth $1115 and the winner gets to participate in the main event at Las Vegas, which is worth $500,000. The winners of all the promotional seats get to go to Vegas to watch all the live action.
The HPO plans
The current festival is the third season of HPO. In such a short time the event has been able to generate massive buzz. One reason for this is that these are fun events with wholesome entertainment value. The regional events are always held in nice casino locations. For instance the Grantville location – Hollywood Casino – is a part of the Penn Race Course and there is plenty to do here from casino games to races and museums and excellent dining options. Even for those who don’t win the promotional seats for the main event can ensure for themselves hours of fun at the many regional events. Some regional events are over but there are plenty left still to grab the seats.
