Chicagoland Main Event Kicks Off Today

We have seen large fields in side events all week long in Chicagoland for the Heartland Poker Tour series at Ameristar Casino Hotel East Chicago. The best is yet to come. Today marks the start of the nationally televised $1,650 Main Event. The first of three starting flights for that tournament kicks off today at 2pm.

Visit HPTupdates.com all weekend to follow our Main Event blog.

HPT's last visit to Ameristar East Chicago in May yielded a Main Event prize pool of $898,560. Alex Ziskin outlasted the competition in that tournament to take home the top prize of $201,391.

All players who enter the Main Event start with a 30k stack and blinds are set at 40 minutes. Today's flight will play 15 full levels or down to 13% of the field, whichever comes first. Players get a 15-minute break every three levels with a full one-hour dinner break coming after Level 9.

When players return from the dinner break, at approximately 9:30pm this evening, registration will be closed for the opening flight. Flight B is scheduled for tomorrow at 2:00pm and Flight C is at 12:00pm Saturday.

Players who advance through their respective flights return Sunday at noon for Day 2 two action. On Sunday, they'll play down to the final nine. That group returns Monday to play down to a winner under the bright lights. Fans and family can tune in to watch the final table livestream, with hole cards, Monday at twitch.tv/hptpoker.
