Final Main Event Session Now Underway

Today is the third and final starting flight for our LAPO Main Event, and it will surely be the biggest one yet. After two flights, we already have over 300 players, and we are expecting to easily pass the $500,000 Guarantee early on today. Registration will remain open until 4:30 PM today, and remember that the top 5% will be joining the 17 survivors from the previous two days to create the final field of players tomorrow! 

Final LAPO Main Event Satellite Now Underway

Your last chance to qualify for this massive $500,000 Guaranteed Event for a mere $175 has just kicked off here in the tournament ballroom. At least five seats will be handed out in this final satellite. Those players will join the more than 100 players who have already satellited and registered for tomorrow's flight. Registration will be open until 10:15 PM tonight, and don't forget that the third and final LAPO Main Event flight kicks off tomorrow at noon! 

Final Numbers on the 5 PM Satellite

The first of two satellites tonight drew 99 players, meaning we will not be giving out 10 seats in this one...we will be giving out 13! In addition, 14th place will be taking home $700. Don't forget that we have one more satellite tonight at 8 PM, guaranteeing at least five more Main Event seats! 

1-13th. Main Event Seats
14th. $700
