The First Two Starting Flights of the Exciting Event Are In The Books
The first day of the 2017 Card Player Poker Tour Ocean’s 11 San Diego Classic is now in the books! The tournament is estimated to build a total prize pool well in excess of $100,000 and it is likely that the event will far exceed that expectation, with over $50,000 added to the prize pool after the first day of action.
The $250 buy-in CPPT tournament has six day 1 starting flights in total, beginning at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day from Apr. 20-22. (Thursday through Saturday), with day 2 kicking on Sunday, Apr. 23 at 1:00 PM. Ocean’s 11 is also offering a Quantum Reload day 2 buy-in option for those who do not want to fight their way through day 1 qualifiers in this massive CPPT event. Players can enter on day 2 for $1,500 and receive an average chip stack of 120,000 with blinds starting at 1,000 – 2,000 that day.
Thursday, April 20 saw the first two starting flights out of six get underway in this CPPT event. Flight 1A drew 137 total entries while flight 1B attracted 126.
With 263 total entries so far the prize pool has already grown to $52,600 with four starting flights yet to go. Only 38 players survived from the two starting flights that ran today, with Richard Aronow in the lead with 265,300. Here is a look at the complete chip counts of those who have made their way to day 2:
