$500 NLHE Main Event (Re-Entry)
Level 1: 25/50
Total Entries: 24

Welcome to Saturday at Council Bluffs, Iowa for the PPC Poker Tour Horseshoe Council Bluffs Series Main Event!

Day 1C is the third of four starting flights for the tournament.  The tournament carries a $100,000 guarantee. Players will start with 20,000 chips and blind levels will be 30 minutes long on all Day 1 flights and shifts to 40 minute blinds on Day 2.  Registration and re-entry will be open until the start of Level 9.  Play will continue until the end of Level 16 or 10% of the field remaining.  Everyone who advances will return for Day 2 on Sunday at 12 PM.  $20,000 of the prize pool will be set aside for four $5,000 packages to the PPC Aruba World Championship at the Hilton Aruba Resort on November 2nd through the 8th with a $500,000 guaranteed Main Event.

Our winner along with the cash and the PPC Aruba World Championship Package will also win a trip to the PPC Champion of Champions Tournament at Maryland Live! Casino, a pair of Blue Shark Optics glasses and apparel from Kicker Power/Kicker Problems.

So far, it’s the Mark Kroon show on top of the leaderboard.  The PPC Poker Tour Ambassador put away 471,000 chips in Day 1A to lead the way so far in the tournament with 2011 WSOP bracelet winner Eric Rodawig waiting in the wings after bagging 291,000 chips to win the Day 1B.  We’ll see who joins them on Sunday later today.

If you can’t make it down to this morning’s flight there is still one more chance to take your shot heading to Aruba with Day 1D beginning at 6 PM.

No Saturday morning cartoons here – the cards are in the air for Day 1C of the Main Event.  Best of luck to all of our players this morning!
