$2,400 NLHE Main Event (Re-Entry)
Level 27: 25,000/50,000/5,000 Antes
Players Remaining: 4
The final four of this Main Event will have big implications on the Player of the Year race. If Ron Rodrigue, in Event 9, does not place exactly first, one of the men here will be the Player of 2016 on the PPC Tour. If Deutsch wins or places second, he will grab the title. If either Beadnell or Lerner finish winner, they will win the title. If Deutsch comes second and one of the other two finish top, it’ll be a lot closer and will have to come down to tiebreaker math.
