Last year, Pittsburgh's Rivers Casino, which opened in 2009, put itself on the poker map when Phil Hellmuth topped a field of 254 entrants to win the Pittsburgh Poker Open Main Event for $54,000. That tournament was a part of a larger Poker Night in America (PNIA) festival, which will return to the venue for a third time from November 5-23, 2015.

The latest iteration of the Pittsburgh Poker Open will run for 23 days, culminating with the $1,000 Main Event – which will feature a $100,000 guarantee and two starting flights — from November 20-23. Hellmuth is already confirmed to attend.

What's more, three days prior to the tournament finale an invite-only high-stakes poker cash game will be recorded for TV. Among those confirmed to play are Shaun Deeb, David Eldridge, Matt Glantz, Jennifer Harman, Phil Laak, Dennis Phillips, Mark 'Pegasus' Smith, Jack Schanbacher, Tom Schneider, Jennifer Tilly, and of course Hellmuth.

'The Rivers Casino is thrilled to have national TV coming back to Pittsburgh,' said Jim Tinney, Poker Room Manager at The Rivers Casino. Poker Night in America is returning to bring the excitement of poker pros playing for high-stakes and will also be here to televise the Pittsburgh Poker Open. Phil Hellmuth is returning to defend his crown as he won the Main Event last year. We are expecting a big turnout. This is a chance for all players to come and play alongside some of the best and most exciting poker pros in the world.”


While the cash game is invite-only, players will have a chance to buy into the game, appear on television, and compete among the best poker personalities in the world. That's because PNIA will host three onsite $1,000 buy-in single-table satellites at Noon on November 20-22. Each satellite winner will receive a seat and $10,000 buy-in into the big game.

Finally, poker fans will be able to enjoy the Pittsburgh Poker Open as three days of cash games, plus one added day which includes the championship finale, will be live-streamed daily on Twitch with hole cards shown and commentary provided by David Tuchman.

I've been a tournament player for over 15 years and I have played tournaments in Las Vegas, Los Angeles at the Bicycle Casino and The Commerce and this little $50 buy in is by far the coolest. EG. Yesterday I bought in a lil late at 2:45 and I was an alternate. Great to see a nice turn out so I didnt mind. Normally its 10k in chips but they tweaked a few things and now its 40k deep stack. AWESOME since the blinds afford you to see more flops than normal. After about 6 hours of play I had around 2 million in chips and sitting in 1st place with 4 people left out of a field of 138 players. I ended up winning 1st place with a prize of $1,275. Not a bad payout for $50. I highly recommend you play this tourny on Sundays only at rivers casino. The afternoon 2:15 tourny will have the most players as the 7:15 gets about half that size. To end this review on a good note, I gambled $200 of my winnings to slots and hit a regular jackpot of $2,500 on HOT 7s!! So took $100 in cash with me and came home with a POSITIVE $3,575. YEA IM LOVING RIVERS AROUND ABOUT NOW :)
