What's Coming Up: Friday, September 4th

The $200,000 Guaranteed opening event continues tomorrow with not one, but two starting flights. The first one will be starting at 1 PM, with registration open until 3:15. Less than two hours after that, the second flight of the day will be kicking off. Just like the first two flights, the top 12% will be making the money, but only the final 5% will be moving on to the finals to play for over $200,000 on Sunday! So make sure to come down and spend your Friday evening with us here at the Commerce Casino, and good luck players!

By the Numbers: Flight 1B of Event #1 $200,000 Guaranteed

We had 79 players come out for the second of six flights here in the $200,000 Guaranteed opening event. That means that the top four will be joining the six players who advanced yesterday, putting just 10 players into the finals on Sunday. The action will be picking up tomorrow, as there will be two flights, at 1 and 5 PM. Registration for both flights will be open until the end of the first break, or two hours and fifteen minutes into play. Check below for a breakdown of the payouts, and be sure to come back tomorrow morning to find an updated list of survivors from this massive first event of the Commerce Poker Series!

1st-4th: Advance to Day 2
5th and 6th: $650
7th-9th: $550

Numbers Update on Flight 1B Today

We are up to 76 players in the second flight of the day, a bit down from the number we had yesterday. Registration is still open for a half an hour, so you still have time to come down and get in here last minute. Remember that the action picks up tomorrow, as there will be not one, but two starting flights, with the first one kicking off at 1 PM. If that is too early for you, the second flight of the day will be starting at 5 PM.

A Few More Pictures From Today's Play

We have a few more snapshots from today's flight for you guys, with just under an hour left to register. It was a quick day for Gene O'Leary, who's aces were cracked on the first hand of the day by the pocket fours of John Hulett, also pictured below. We also spotted former WPT Runner-Up Massoud Eskandari in the crowd today looking for another major tournament run here in LA. Check below for their photos, and a couple more.
