The action rolls on tomorrow, and as we have done all week, we will be doing mixed games in the afternoon, and turbo hold'em in the evening! At 1 PM, we have our $350 OE Event (half Omaha 8/half Stud 8). Registration for that event will be open until 5:00 PM, and it will be a one day event. 

At 5 PM it will be time for another flight in our Double Stack Turbo Event. This will be the final day with just one flight. On Friday and Saturday, there will be two different flights each day, leading up to the finals on Sunday.
