By the Numbers: Fourth Flight of the $500,000 Guaranteed Event

The fourth flight in this massive guaranteed Legend of Poker Event drew a total of 289 players, falling just short of the 303 from this morning's flight. That means that another 29 Day 2 tickets will be punched late this evening. Of course, all of those players will also be taking home $400 for their efforts tonight, and will come back on Wednesday to play for alot more than that!

1-29th - $400 + Advance to Day 2

Numbers Update on the First Flight

Players in the first flight of the day are taking another break right now. They are down to just 70 players, but they still have a ways to go, as only the top 30 will be locking up a min cash of $400. Among those still in contention from this flight are Peter Hengsakul, Ben Chung, Bruce Buffer, and Dan Kellstrom.

Remember that there is still time to register for our afternoon flight today. Registration will be closing at the top of the hour for that one.

What's on Tap: Sunday, August 6th

Tomorrow we have more $500,000 Guaranteed action as two more flights are kicking off at 11:30 AM and 4 PM. Each one will have three hours of late registration, and players may re-enter in that time period as well. The top 10% of players will be cashing for $400, and will take with them a seat to the Day 2 finals on Wednesday, where one player will be walking home with around $100,000.

Good luck everyone!

Exactly 200 Players Coming Back From First Break

We have hit the halfway point of registration in the second flight of the day, and the clock says an even 200 entries so far. This morning's flight got over 300, and while this flight is on pace to finish short of that, it is still a fantastic start to this massive $500,000 Guaranteed Event.

If you can't come down and register by 7 PM, our next flights kick off tomorrow at 11:30 AM and 4 PM!

Some Player Photos in the Afternoon Session

Below you will see a few of the players who are here in the second flight of the day, including a few recent big winners. Mark Bohanner is fresh off a score of more than $40,000 when he was part of the three way chop in the $200,000 Guaranteed Event. We also spotted Artak Babayan, who was declared the winner of the Summer Series Main Event after a six way chop. Scroll down for those photos, and a couple more!

Cards in the Air: Saturday Afternoon Flight

The second flight of the day has just started up here at the Bicycle Casino, and we are hoping for a similar turnout as our opening flight today, which drew a tournament high 303 entries. Registration will be open until 7 PM, and players can re-enter in that time frame as well.

The top 10% of players will be taking home $400, and moving on to the finals on Wednesday.

Second Flight of the Day Starts in an Hour

As the title indicates, the second starting session of the day, and the fourth of ten total in this massive half million guaranteed event, starts up at the top of the hour. The buy-in today is $240, and that will get players 20,000 in starting chips. Registration will be open for three hours, until 7 PM.

Good luck all!

By the Numbers: Over 300 Entries in Flight C

The third flight of the $500,000 Guaranteed Event was easily the biggest we've had so far, as a total of 303 players entered. That means that the top 30 players will be taking home $400 today, and coming back in a few days to battle it out for much more than that.

1-30th. $400 + Advance to Day 2

Some Player Photos From the Opening Flight

Below you will see the first round of notable photos here today. UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer is stepping out of the octagon and onto the felt today in this event.
