Event 8 is about ready to roll out in the meeting room and a nice, quick-paced tournament for those already bagged up in Event 6.
The tournament plays a six-max format with a $360 buy-in and single re-entry option if they bust their stack before registration closes.
They will start off with 10,000 stacks and the tournament will run 30-minute levels. Late registration is open until the start of Level 9 at 4:30pm but players only have that one re-entry. There is a dinner break schedule for 6:30pm and the one-day trophy event will continue until we have a champion.
Cards go in the air at noon and it should be a fast, fun tournament.
Players begin with 10,000 in chips and 30-minute levels
Late registration/SINGLE re-entry available until start of Level 9
This is a one-day tournament and plays until completion

We are at the midway point of the last multi-day tournament before the Championship kicks off on Friday. Event 6 is a $570 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament with a $250,000 guaranteed prize pool and four starting flights over two days.
Yesterday, the first two flights combined for 267 entries to get the tournament at an easy pace to push the prize pool over the guaranteed mark. We expect to see that later this evening and they will begin running it higher.
Event 6 players will sit down to 20,000 deep stacks and play 30-minute levels throughout their opening flight. Late registration and re-entries are available until the start of Level 9 at 3:30pm then play through 14 full levels. Those with chips at that point will bag them up for a Day 2 return tomorrow at 1pm.
Dealers are prepared and players are taking their seats for the kick off at 11am sharp.

It was a busy day in the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood tournament room on Monday evening.
There were two players who took home some hardware and two starting flights that played to completion. Francois Zayas won the $360 ultimate re-entry event in a seven-way chop. Zayas took home $107,973 for his efforts.
The other trophy won on Monday was by David Shmuel in the $360 pot limit Omaha 8-or-better event. He chopped heads-up with Jeff Duvall. Shmuel won $7,152 and the trophy.
While the first multi-flight re-entry event of the series wrapped up, the second kicked off. There were two flights of the $570 no-limit hold’em re-entry event. Day 1A kicked off at 11 a.m. and it drew 145 players, while Day 1B drew 122 players several hours later. 28 players made it through 1A and 24 survived Day 1B.
Blake Vita holds the chip lead through two flights. He bagged the Day 1A chip lead with 296,000.
A preview of Tuesday’s schedule will be published in the morning.
