The entry count continues to climb and the Championship crossed over 1,000 for the tournament with a long time to run it up. They are taking aim on a $5,000,000 prize pool and that number is in play.
Some familiar faces in early action include Fred Paradis, Gabe Abusada, Francis Margaglione, Blake Whittington, Brian Altman, David Vurgait, David DiBernardi, Timothy Banks, and Mitch Mitchell.
Paradis and Abusada have some history in common. Our friends in Tampa hosted two WPT main tour stops and both players came one spot from joining the WPT Champions Club. Paradis finished second in September to Corey Wade and Abusada was the runner-up when Altman won his third WPT title.
