$2,200 Eight-Handed No Limit Hold’em (Freeze-Out)
Level 2: 50/100
A mere 45 minutes into play and halfway through Level 2, the guarantee in today’s $2,200 Eight-Handed Freeze-Out was bested as the clock struck 100 entries. With that, the prize pool hit the $200,000 threshold with just about four more hours of late registration left.
Doing their part to grow the prize pool up toward the quarter-million mark are Seminole Hard Rock Poker team members Faraz Jaka, Matt Stout, Chance Kornuth and Matthew Affleck among others.
Other pros in on the early action include Aaron Massey, Shannon Shorr and Ari Engel.
Last year this tournament drew 191 entries ultimately seeing Nick Petrangelo earning the top prize of more than $93,000.
Updates from this tournament will pick up a little later in the day.
