Event 13: Triple Digit Entrants

Level 2: 50/100

It took just one level for Event 13 to surpass the $30,000 guaranteed prizepool as the board is showing 102 in the field as they bump up the blinds.

Players have a lot more elbow room with only six players around the table and the short-handed format is encouraging a little more gambling than its full-ring counterpart.

A lot of regular faces are in the early crowd. Zach Kessler, Jake Tryba, Bob “Uncle Krunk” Panitch, Errol Massey, Elliot Zaydman, Eric Piderit, and Angel Vu are all regulars around these parts and they are once again joined by 2004 WSOP Main Event champion Greg Raymer.

Level 1: 25/50

It’s another big day at the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open. The ballroom will be full with five separate major events at the same time. The first one is a $350 buy-in Big Stack No Limit Hold’em tournament with a 6-Max format. Event 13 also sports a $30,000 guaranteed prizepoool for those getting in the short-handed game.

The big name pros have begun arriving at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and creating nice fields when combined with the large group of poker room regulars.

Players start with 15,000 stacks and 30-minute levels. Late registration/re-entry is available until the start of Level 7, approximately 3:15pm. This is scheduled as a 1-day tournament so they will continue until some earns the title unless the clock reaches 3am, then they will bag up and come back tomorrow.
