One Bracket Still Going In The Heads Up

Our very own Kevin Taylor is still battling it out against Kazuhito to see who will advance to the final 8 players and be in the money. 6 of the final 8 players have already been determined, but the Clubs bracket is the last one that has yet to finish. Once these two matches are completed, the final 8 will be set and return tomorrow to play to a winner. Here's a look at the Clubs bracket, and how these players got here.

What's Coming Up: Thursday, February 2nd

It's back to the $570 buy-ins tomorrow with a Limit Hold'em Event at 1 PM, and Big O at 5 PM. The Limit Hold'em will see players start with 12,500 in chips, and registration will be open until 5:30 PM. For the Big O event, players will also be starting with 12,500, and that will stay open until 7:15 PM. Big O is Pot-Limit Omaha 8-or-Better, but you get five cards instead of 4 PM!

Both of these events are two days, with the Limit Hold'em finals starting at 2 PM, and the Big O finals at 3 PM on Friday.

Cards in the Air: $150 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-or-Better w/ Rebuys

We have another event that promises to provide plenty of action kicking off now in the tournament room. It's a $150 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha 8-or-Better event, and it is one of only four events this series that will allow for multiple rebuys. Players will start with 2,500 in chips, and registration will be open until 7:15 PM tonight.

Good luck players!

Some Heads Up Updates

In case you're wondering why there aren't as many updates as usual, it's because our usual blogger, Kevin, is actually playing in the tournament. He's currently playing in the second round against Khang Nguyen after advancing from the first round. Good luck to Kevin on his much deserved day off.
