Quad Aces on the Flop!

We were sent a fun hand from eaarlier today that one of the players in the event managed to catch on camera, so we figured we would share it with you guys. It was the start of a great day for Jagdish Tejwani (pocket aces in the hand), who has turned into one of the chip leaders as the night is about to wrap up. Enjoy the action!

What's on Tap: Wednesday, June 28th

Tomorrow will be the third and final day of this massive $500,000 Guaranteed Event, but that is not the only poker that will be played tomorrow. We have three events kicking off tomorrow, two open tournaments and one satellite. At 11:30 AM, we go back to the mixed games with a $130 Big "O" 8 or Better Event. At 4 PM, it's another $130 buy-in event, but this was is a No-Limit Hold'em Survivor where the top 10% will all be earning $1,000 each.

Lastly, we have a $75 satellite to our $550 WSOP Satellite on Friday, where at least 10 players will be earning a severely discounted seat to the $10,000 buy-in World Series of Poker Main Event. It will be an action packed day, so don't miss it!
