The first flight field moved into the second level of the day and they were joined by Seminole Hard Rock team member Matt Affleck.

He represented the team well this summer in Las Vegas. The Seattle native cashed five times in the World Series of Poker including a tenth place finish in the massive-field $1,500 Monster Stack and Affleck followed that up with a final table, third place result in the $1,500 Event 56 for nearly $185,000.

Flight 1A is quickly climbing and we should be looking at the next milestone once we hit the afternoon hours.
