We’ve seen a high level of poker this weekend with some incredibly talented players taking their shot at reaching Day 2 of the PPC Poker Tour Tampa Downs Fall Classic. But it’s now the final shot for our players to lock up their chance to play for the Main Event title with Day 1D getting started.
So far 156 entries have been tallied through the first three flights just passing the $50,000 guarantee with tonight’s flight to go. 12 players advanced from the first two flights and 20 players are still battling it out to advance in Day 1C to join them along with tonight’s participants.
This afternoon is the third of four starting flights for the Main Event. The tournament carries a $50,000 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 1 PM. 20% of the prize pool will be set aside for packages for 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.
We will also be broadcasting our featured table on http://Twitch.tv/PPCPokerTour so please tune in and root on your favorites from Tampa Bay Downs.
We’re off and running with cards now in the air in Day 1D. Best of luck to all of our players!
