$360 Ultimate Re-Entry No Limit Hold’em
$500,000 Guaranteed | Payouts
Returning to Level 16: 4,000/8,000 with a 1,000 ante
Players Remaining: 314 of 3,570
The opening event of the series has gone through eight starting flights over four days to leave us with 314 players vying for the trophy along with more than $200,000.
2016 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year David Prociak bagged a huge stack in Flight C and his 579,000 is good enough to return today as the chip leader. Emile Schiff is not far behind when he returns to 570,000 with Benjamin Scrogins, Daniel Young, and Jose Luis Gonzalez rounding out the top five.
The huge tournament drew 3,570 entries for a prize pool over $1 million to easily surpass the $500,000 Guarantee. Each flight played down to the money so everyone today is already guaranteed a $600 min-cash, but all will be shooting for the top prize of $204,320.
With no bubble play today, action will be fast from the beginning. There will be a steady parade of short stacks hitting the payout desk as the short stacks try to double or get their money.
All 314 players will return at 1pm, check out their stacks, then begin playing their way down to the final table and Event 1 champion.
