 (pokernews.com) – For the past week, the Hollywood Poker Open (HPO) has been hosting their latest stop – the last before June’s season-ending $2,500 Championship Event at M Resort Casino Spa in Las Vegas — at the Hollywood Casino in Columbus, Ohio. On Saturday, HPO Columbus will culminate with its $1,115 buy-in Regional Main Event, which will feature a $100,000 guarantee.

The stop has already proven a hit among local players, many of who will take a shot at poker glory in the Main Event.
Last year, Joey Couden overcame a 7-1 chip disadvantage to win the HPO Columbus for $60,827. That tournament attracted 126 entrants – an HPO record at the time – and created a prize pool of $202,754. Back then the Main Event was an $1,800 buy-in, so with Season 3’s more affordable $1,115 price tag there’s a good chance the field will grow even bigger.
The Columbus stop continues what has been a tremendously successful Season 3. Last November, Jesse McEuen kicked things off when he took downthe HPO Lawrenceburg for $49,676, and in early February Charles Maxcy took down the HPO Toledo for $37,465 after a chop.
From there, Donald McArthur won the HPO Tunica for $17,100, Steven Gurney-Goldman took down the HPO Grantville Regional for $29,342, andLinda Lieder defeated Kyle Cartwright in heads-up play to win the 2015 HPO St. Louis Regional Main Event for $48,440. Most recently car dealer Loukas Michael won the HPO Charles Town for $35,803.
