Event 26 Flight B: Hitting the Guarantee

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 1: 25/50

Most of the recent events on the schedule, aside from the major WPT tournaments, featured a single-day format but Event 26 changes things up with a small buy-in, multi-day tournament that will put together a great prize pool.

The $150 buy-in tournament has a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool and two starting flights, the second kicking off at 5pm. Flight A drew 306 entries to leave them only 111 needed today to hit the mark, every new entry after the will kick the prize pool higher.

Entrants will sit down to 10,000 starting stacks and play 30-minute levels. Late registration and unlimited re-entries are available until the start of Level 9 at 9:30 and they will continue through the evening until the end of Level 14. Those still holding a stack will put their chips in a bag for a Day 2 return on Wednesday.

WPT Finale: Tim West Doubles Through Jonathan Jaffe

$10,000 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Finale
Level 20: 8,000/16,000 with a 2,000 Ante
Players Remaining: 10 of 349

Josh Kay opened to 35,000 from the cutoff and Tim West moved all-in for 929,000 from the small blind. Jonathan Jaffe called in the big blind and Kay released.

Jaffe: JcJd

West missed the Td5h3s flop but the Ks turn was friendly. For West. The Qh river finished the board and West had his double.

“I didn’t want to get shoved on after the flop,” West told us. “So I ripped it in with AK.”

Tim West – 1,875,000 (117 bb)
Jonathan Jaffe – 560,000 (35 bb)
