The VIP Reception has come to an end, and everyone has moved into the tournament room and taken their seats.
The emcee has welcomed all the players to the Jeff Conine Celebrity Charity event, and this is the third straight year that it’s been held here at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.
Then Jeff Conine spoke, and said he was about the new Guitar Tower which will be opened this October.
At 7:39 pm, everything was set and ready to go, so it was time to shuffle up and deal!
The tournament clock shows 316 entries as the cards get in the air, and registration remains open with unlimited re-entries until the end of the first break, which will be nearly 10:00 pm.
Players begin with 10,000 in chips, and the opening blinds are 100-100, with 15-minute levels. There will be a big blind ante, but it won’t kick in until Level 9, after the first break (around 9:40 pm). That first break will also have refreshments available for the players, and it will be the end of the silent auction, with the winners announced.
