Hollywood Park CasinoHosting its second Card Player Poker Tour event in two years, Hollywood Park Casino has upped the ante this time around for the upcoming stop Oct. 16-25.

Tournaments at the LAX-area casino will be more plentiful and feature larger prizepools compared to last year, with the schedule nearly doubling from seven events in 2014 to thirteen events in 2015.

Hollywood Park increased the buy-in for the main event to $500 and the guaranteed prizepool to $150,000. The series will also feature an Omaha hi-low tournament and no-limit hold’em bounty tournaments, another change from 2014.

Play will begin Oct. 16 with a $160 no-limit hold’em $15,000 guarantee tournament and finish with the $500 no-limit hold’em $150,000 guarantee main event Oct. 22-25.

The main event will consist of three starting days with 30-minute levels beginning at 12pm. Day 2 will begin at 2pm and feature 40-minute levels until the final table is reached. The final table will play out on the same day, however levels will increase to 60 minutes. Players will begin with 30,000 in tournament chips and can re-enter or register until the beginning of level 9. Each day one will end when only 10 percent of the field remains, meaning all day 2 players will be in the money. Levels on day 2 will begin at the earliest ending level of the day ones. Players may also qualify up to three times and combine their chips.
