Card Player Poker Tour Choctaw -- Day 1 Results
First Event Draws 408 Players For Day 1A of 2-Day Re-Entry Event
The first day of preliminary events is off to a great start at the inaugural Card Player Poker Tour Choctaw. The first event is a $235 no-limit hold’em re-entry with two starting days, and day 1A alone nearly fulfilled the $100,000 prize pool guarantee with 408 entrants, and more expected for Friday’s day 1B.
The Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma is playing host to a 22-tournament series, with prelim events starting at noon and 4:00 PM. The buy-ins for the series range from $200 all the way up to $1,080. The no-limit hold’em main event will feature just that buy-in, as well as in-depth coverage and a live stream of the final table right here on Card Player.
In addition to the official prelim events, Choctaw will also play host to nightly $125 tournaments at 7:00 PM for the duration of the series.
Here are the results for Thursday’s events:
Event 1 — $235 No-Limit Hold’em Re-Entry ($100,000 Guarantee)
Day 1A of event 1, the $235 no-limit hold’em re-entry that drew 408 players, almost fulfilled the $100,000 prize pool guarantee on the first day with an even greater turnout expected for day 1B on Friday, July 27th.
The survivors of day 1A and day 1B will combine on Saturday at noon and play down to a champion.
