The first day of preliminary events is in the books at the inaugural Native American Casino Poker Tour: Choctaw. The Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma is playing host to a 20-event series, with events starting at noon, 4 p.m. and a nightly $125 tournament at 7 p.m.

The buy-ins for the series range from $125 all the way up to the $1,000 no-limit hold’em main event, which will feature in-depth coverage and a live stream of the final table.

In addition to no-limit hold’em, the series will have two $200 Omaha eight-or-better events, one starting Dec. 4 and the other on Dec. 7, and a $300 pot-limit Omaha tournament that begins on Dec. 8.

All of the preliminary events will award $50 vouchers for the $100 super satellites (with $50 re-buys) for the main event that will run on December 9 at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.

All noon events during the series will award the final 18 players an entry, while all 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. events will award entries to the final nine.
