Card Player Poker Tour Ocean's 11 Quantum Main Event Begins Thursday

Buy-In Is $250 For Six Starting Flights, Or $1,500 For Day 2 Quantum Entry


This weekend, the Card Player Poker Tour will return to Ocean’s 11 Casino near San Diego for a $250 buy-in Quantum main event. This will be the seventh time the CPPT rolls into Oceanside, California, and as a result, tournament officials expect a big turnout.

Although the event has an official estimated prize pool of $150,000, last year the tournament saw the field balloon to 910 runners, creating a prize pool of nearly $250,000. In the end, Barry Seidman was the last man standing, earning a $38,873 payday.

The tournament officially runs from July 26-29, with six starting flights, two each day, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Although thanks to the Quantum format, players can skip the starting flights and buy-in directly to day 2 on July 29 with an average stack for an increased buy-in of $1,500.

Ocean’s 11 is the only casino in Southern California located along the Pacific Ocean on the I-5 freeway, less than a mile from some of the area’s most picturesque beaches.

The property also boasts 50 tables of the best poker and table games found anywhere in California with all the favorites, including no-limit and limit hold’em, Omaha, Omaha eight-or-better, pot-limit Omaha, and crazy pineapple.
