Level 1: 100/100

Flight F of LHPO Event 1 is ready to go in the Seminole Ballroom and we already know how many we’ll have at the start. This flight was booked solid at the 400 player max cap earlier this afternoon which means no new players will enter the field. Those with seats can still re-enter one time if they are eliminated before 10:30pm.

The prize pool is now over $1,500,000 and it will climb with each new re-entry.

Cards go in the air shortly and we will see who can advance to Day 2.

Level 8: 400/800 with a 800 ante
Flight E Entries: 542

After a busy day at the registration desk, tournament staff announced that all available spots in Flight F at 6 pm are now locked up after hitting the 400 max player cap. That means no other new players will be able to enter but those with seats will still have their single re-entry option available to them until 10:30 pm.

That also means the Event 1 prize pool will top $1.5 million with less than a dozen re-entries this evening.

A huge thanks for the fantastic turnout to start the Lucky Hearts Poker Open.
