For the next two weeks, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood will play host to the Seminole Hard Rock May Deep Stack Poker Series. The series is comprised of three different tournaments at varying price points, all of which will be live reported here on PokerNews.

The series is great for players into value as the trio of headliner events offer starting stacks of 30,000, 40,0000 and 50,000 chips respectively, as well as all of them featuring 40, 60 and 90-minute levels at different points in the tournament.

The Deep Stack

First up is the $350 buy-in Deep Stack NLH (Re-Entry) $150,000 GTD, which will run May 16-20. Players will start with 30,000 in chips and play 40-minute levels through Level 14. Levels 15-26 will last 60 minutes each with Levels 27+ will switch to 90 minutes. Heads-up play will revert to 40-minute levels.

The plan for the Day 1 flights is to play through Level 14.

Late registration and unlimited re-entries will be allowed until the start of Day 2. Players may not bag and play a subsequent flight. Players may forfeit their stack to Re-Enter or participate in subsequent starting day.

The winner of the tournament will also receive an added $1,650 Main Event seat.

In 2018, Dion Jagroo topped a 1,045-entry field to win the Deep Stack for $66,000. The year before that, Ben Lindemulder won it outright for $67,232 after navigating a field of 1,029 runners. Back in 2016, it was Steve McKoy coming out on top of a 1,075-entry field to win the title and accompanying $49,755 first-place prize.

The Deeper Stack

Seminole Hard Rock

Next is the $560 buy-in Deeper Stack NLH (Re-Entry) $150,000 GTD, which will run May 20-22. Players will start with 40,000 in chips and play 40-minute levels through Level 14. Levels 15-26 will last 60 minutes each with Levels 27+ will switch to 90 minutes. Heads-up play will revert to 40-minute levels.

The plan for the Day 1 flights is to play through Level 14. Late registration and unlimited re-entries will be allowed until the start of Day 2. Like the Deep Stack, this is not a best-stack forward event.

The winner of the tournament will also receive an added $1,650 Main Event seat.

Last year, Chanpiseth Keam prevailed over a 432-entry field to win the Deeper Stack for $37,991. The year before that, Jeffrey Trudeau Jr. topped a 434-entry field to win it for $49,148, while Almog Biton topped a 452-entry field to win it in 2016 for $57,746.

The Deepest Stack

Finally, the series will close out with the $1,650 buy-in Deepest Stack NLH (Re-Entry) $300,000 GTD, which will run May 23-27. Players will start with 50,000 in chips and play 40-minute levels through Level 14. Levels 15-26 will last 60 minutes each with Levels 27+ will switch to 90 minutes. Heads-up play will revert to 40-minute levels.

The plan for the Day 1 flights is to play through Level 14. Late registration and unlimited re-entries will be allowed until the start of Day 2. Like the Deep Stack, this is not a best-stack forward event.

Last year, Chris Bolek topped a 349-entry field to win the Deepest Stack Main Event for $94,544 after a heads-up deal with TK Miles. Other past winners include Geddes Cooper, who topped a 465-entry field to win it in 2017 for $112,771, and Scott Heiligman, who bested 367 entries in 2016 to win it for $121,202.
