The Hollywood Poker Open Season 4 is going on quite well, and this forthcoming weekend marks the 2nd Regional Main Event of the year as the tour has now entered Toledo, in Ohio.
The US$ 1115 Main Event started on Friday at 11:15 am and contains a US$ 150000 guaranteed prize kitty. As usual, tour ambassador as well as World Series of Poker Main Event 2003 champ Chris Moneymaker would be in the there.
If the attendance is anything like the previous last season, the guarantee must be easily moderated as 288 players came in an event which saw 6 players chop up the prize kitty late on the second day with local poker player Charles Maxcy taking US$ 37465 and a US$ 2500 seat to the season-finishing HPO Championship in Las Vegas.
HPO Season 4 started late in 2015 with HPO Lawrenceburg, where Josh Lowing became the face a 3-way chop for US$ 33907 and the official 1st spot finish out of a 229 players pack.
Meanwhile, the Court of Justice for the European Union ruled against Germany’s protective online gaming laws last week that would likely need a complete overhaul of the gaming legislation of the country. It seems that a lot of important players are already responding to this news, as the topic was talked about in detail at German Association of Internet Businesses symposium.
