The 25th Annual Children's Christmas Party at The Bicycle Hotel & Casino

The Bicycle Hotel & Casino's annual Children's Christmas Party took place again this December to celebrate the holidays with all the local children and families in the neighborhood.  Over 2500 children and adults were welcomed with fun activities for all ages.

The festivities included a petting zoo, arts and crafts stations, horse riding, caricature artists, balloon artists, rock climbing and photos with Santa Clause himself.

This marks the 25th year the Bicycle Hotel & Casino has sponsored such an event and the participation of volunteers and attendees grows each year with much success and joy for all those involved.

Congratulations to Mario Lopez, Winner of the $250,000 Guaranteed Event!

Mario Lopez and Robert Natividad decided to try to work out a deal, and after some initial struggles, the two agreed to a deal! Natividad will take home an extra $10,000, pushing his take home total to $50,690. The winner of the event, Mario Lopez, will earn $59,125, and the title! Congratulations to both players on their fantastic runs!

We want to thank everyone who came out to this series, and all of our major series in 2019. We hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday season, and if we don't see you for our upcoming daily tournaments, we hope you will join us in March, when the WSOP Circuit returns once again!

Robert Natividad - 2nd place 

Don Zewin Eliminated in 3rd Place ($25,470)

Just two hands later, Don Zewin got his short stack of eight big blinds or so in preflop, and he was in good shape, holding [Kh][8d] to the [10h][8c] of Mario Lopez. However, the flop of [10c][7d][5h] flipped the script, and now Zewin was looking for a three outer.

It wouldn't come, as the board finished out [5d] and [3s].

This leaves us heads up, with Lopez holding a massive lead of around 21 million to the nine million of Robert Natividad.

Vontray Gardner Eliminated in 4th Place ($19,290)

Blinds: 75,000-150,000

Mario Lopez raised to 500,000 under the gun, and Vontray Gardner defended his big blind. The flop came down [10h][8d][3c], and Gardner open shoved all in for his final 3.5 million or so. Lopez quickly called with [10s][7s] for top pair, and he was ahead of the [Kh][8d] of Gardner.

The turn [5d] and river [3s] changed nothing, and Lopez celebrated as he dragged another monster pot. With that hand, Lopez has over 20 million of the 30 million chips in play three handed.

Richard Lim Eliminated in 5th Place ($15,490)

After a raise from Vontray Gardner on the button, Richard Lim moved all in from the big blind. Gardner quickly called with [Kc][Kd], and he was well ahead of the [Ac][7h] of Lim. The flop of [7s][4s][3d] gave Lim a pair, but the kings were still in front. The [2d] on the turn gave Lim a few more outs, but none of them came on the river, the [8c].

Gardner is back up to 6.5 million after that pot, and there are now four players left. As of yet, there haven't been any talks of a chop.

Fresh Counts From the Final Five

The floor staff has just colored up the blue 5,000 chips as we start the 75,000-150,000 level, so we thought we would grab some updated chip counts for you guys. Mario Lopez has extended his lead, due in large part to a huge hand that he just won off of Vontray Gardner. Lopez shoved the river in a pot that had at least 3.5 million in it, and Gardner tanked for quite some time before folding. Lopez showed just second pair on the board as he raked in the huge pot.

Mario Lopez - 11,700,000
Robert Natividad - 9,000,000
Vontray Gardner - 5,100,000
Richard LIm - 1,900,000
Don Zewin - 1,400,000
