Congratulations to Frank Lin, Winner of the $100,000 Guaranteed HORSE Event


After Shirley Rosario busted in third place, Frank Lin and Gregory Brainos decided to look at the numbers. They quickly agreed to the deal that saw them both take home over $20,000. Lin had the chip lead, so he will take home the trophy, and the lion's share of the prizepool.

Frank Lin - $22,440
Gregory Brainos - $20,715

Congratulations to both players, and thanks to everyone who played this Quantum HORSE Event!

Exact Counts From the Final Three

After Marco Johnson busted out in fourth place, the final three players took a look at the numbers. They couldn't agree to a deal, so we play on. One benefit of the process is we know exactly how many chips players have. Look down to see those counts as we press on in this three handed battle.

Shirley Rosario - 2,790,000
Frank Lin - 2,740,000
Gregory Brainos - 1,845,000

Fresh Counts From the Final Four in HORSE

We were going to update the chips for you guys when we got down to the final three in HORSE, but four handed play has dragged on for over two hours, so we will update you guys now. Frank Lin still holds a small lead, but Shirley Rosario is breathing down his neck.

Frank Lin - 2.5 million
Shirley Rosario - 2.3 million
Gregory Brainos - 1.2 million
Marco Johnson - 950,000

Cards in the Air: Opening Flight of Mega Millions XVIII

It's the time many of you have been waiting for. The 18th Mega Millions tournament has just kicked off here at the Bicycle Casino. This tournament gives players the rare opportunity to play for a quarter of a million dollar first place prize, for as little as $160. That is how much this opening flight today costs, as well as the 4 PM flight later on today. All players will have a $100 optional add-on as well, and re-entry will be available until registration closes (2:30 PM).

Good luck everyone!
