A new 46-table poker room will be unveiled Thursday, Jan. 12 in Florida as Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa stakes it’s claim as a premier power poker destination.

Seminole Hard Rock Tampa’s new, non-smoking, state of the art poker room will feature wi-fi throughout and will have the sports fan in mind by offering 40 TV’s, including six 75 inch TV’s and four 65-inch TV’s.

Comedian and professional poker player Brad Garrett, best know for having played the role of Robert Barone in the hit CBS series “Everybody Loves Raymond,” will be performing a ceremonial guitar smash before the venue opens to the public.
