This weekend's $1,100 Main Event in Florida is underway. Day 1 flights are scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Players who make it through their respective flights return to the felt Sunday for Day 2 action. The final nine will take their seat on the televised table Monday afternoon.
Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club is playing host to its tenth Heartland Poker Tour event this weekend. Over the course of the first nine HPT events, more than $4 million in prize pool money was awarded. A hefty sum is sure to be added to that total by the time the weekend comes to a close.
This is the second-to-last event on the HPT Season XIV schedule. That means there are only two events left for players to collect Player of the Year points. The current POY race is a tight one with Ossama Estafanous leading Aaron Johnson by a mere one point. Several other challengers are within a few points of catching Estafanous. We anticipate seeing all of those in contention this weekend.
In addition to bragging rights, the Season XIV Player of the Year will collect a $10k package with hotel accommodations to play in six HPT Main Events next season.
