Heartland Poker Tour Grand Series

The Heartland Poker Tour, while not drawing the same league of player as series like the WPT and WSOP, is definitely getting increasingly more recognition in recent days. Started by Todd Anderson and Greg Land in 2005, the tour has since grown annually. The HPT is currently watched by more than 50 million homes nation wide.

The Heartland Poker Tour Grand Series is ready to begin , with the 2,000+200 dollar buy-in Main Event scheduled for August 26th. The Grand Casino Mille Lacs, in Minnesota, will be hosting the series. There are planned nine events over eight days. Previously the HPT has drawn players from 37 states and 3 countries to compete in this series. The Main Event will feature a televised final table. The winner will not only receive an enormous amount of cash but will have a place at the biggest event on circuit the Heartland Poker Tour Championship Open.

The first four events will have an inexpensive buy-in of 175+25 dollar or less and all the winners will qualify for a place a major event during the series. All the events will be No-Limit Hold’em although Event 4 will be a bounty game: whoever busts out the celebrity players with a bounty on them will win 100 and a HPT jacket. Participants need only be 18 years old so expect the young and aggressive will be bringing the fire power all the way through the series.

Most recently a Home Depot employee, Dan Zogman won in the HPT Majestic Star event, which had a record-breaking 1,481 players. The Heartland Poker Tour approaches poker with the average player in mind. The buy-ins are low enough that almost anyone can play and the prize money isn’t something to miss out on, especially for your average middle class player. Zogman took home a cool $227,811 for his victory.
