Main Event Day 1B: Final Chance

$1,500 + $150 Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘n’ Poker Open” Main Event

Blinds: 50/100

The final starting day of the Seminole Hard Rock “Rock ‘n’ Roll Poker Open” Main Event is underway as the field builds a prizepool to exceed the $500,000 guarantee. A huge field of 210 entrants put their money up on Day 1A for a shot at the big prize but only 48 of them survived to carry ships into Day 2.

Serge Coles and local Nigel Murray finished 1A as the two biggest stacks and players today will try to match them. Day 1B players sit down with 20,000 stacks to play ten 1-hour levels with late registration or re-entry open until 4:30pm.

We will be here throughout the day bringing live updates and reports from around the poker room.
