With the day's buy-ins included, the prizepool is over $360,000, and will only be rising over the next few days. The next flight is tomorrow at 11:30 AM. Good luck all!

Just Six Tables Left in the $240 Session

We are over halfway through the field in the $240 session, as 54 of the starting 121 remain. Among the crowd are Eugene Tito, Michael Ung, Mark Hamilton, Hai Le, and Sam Goncuoglu.

The final 12 players from this session will be moving on to the finals. Good luck to everyone still in!

Just Three Tables Left in the Opening Session

It has taken just seven hours to get down to the final three tables in the morning session. The money bubble is in sight, though we are still 11 eliminations away from hand for hand play. Recent WSOP Circuit ring winner Greg Gibson is among the players still contending for one of the 10 bags that will be filled from this flight.
