The entry count is climbing at a steady pace and the tournament is close to hitting the $50,000 Guarantee in the first hour. The tournament tripled up that number last year so we expect plenty more players to mix it up before registration is closed.
John Holley is a regular presence in the ballroom and more than a few of his dozens of tournament wins happened right here. In recent news, he earned his sixth WSOP Circuit ring in January and won a guitar trophy during the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Winter Poker Open.
$570 Six-Max No Limit Hold’em (Single Re-Entry) Level 1: 25/50
Event 14 is the last tournament on the schedule before things really heat up tomorrow. After this, we have the High Roller and Super High Roller, the Championship and Tournament of Champions. But we still have plenty of tournaments for everyone of every bankroll.
This is the only main tournament running today and we expect a huge crowd to the $570 buy-in, six-handed, $50,000 Guarantee tournament. It drew more than 300 entries last year and it was won by Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi.
Tournament players will sit down to 12,000 starting stacks and play 30-minute levels from start to finish. Late registration is available until the start of Level 9 at 4:30pm and players are limited to a single re-entry if their stack hits the felt. A dinner break is scheduled at 6:30pm and they will return to find a new champ.
They will get underway at noon and we’ll be here all along the way.
