By the Numbers: Final Qauntum Millions Starting Flight

The final flight of the event nearly outran the record pace set by the morning flight, with a total of 330 players. That puts us right at the $1 million mark going into tomorrow, where the prizepool will inflate after the Day 2 buy-ins.

The final 39 players will be advancing to the finals, which kick off tomorrow at 1 PM. Good luck everyone!

Notables still alive in this flight are Peter Hengsakul, Barbara Enright, Hermilo Vargas, Mike Shariati, Massoud Eskandari, Nick Phoenix, and Thu Nguyen.

Looking Ahead to the Big Poker Oktober!

The highlights of the series are a trio of $500,000 Guaranteed Events. The action kicks off on October 1st with the first of those. The second starts up on the 12th, and the $1,100 buy-in Main Event with the same guarantee starts up on October 17th.

We have another big field brewing here in the final session of the event, with 210 players and counting entered so far. Registration will be open until 7 PM tonight, and we will be getting close to the $1 million guarantee in this flight tonight.

Of course, with the Day 2 buy-ins still to come, we will easily be passing that number tomorrow, so make sure you are in on the action!
