It's time for another year full of red hot poker action and there's no better place to start than Chicago! Ameristar Casino Hotel East Chicago will play host this weekend as we kick off Season XV with a $1,650 Main Event.
This Ameristar East Chicago event features three flights - Thursday at 2pm, Friday at 2pm, and Saturday at 12pm. Each day will play 15 full levels or down to 13% of the field, whichever comes first. The tournament will feature a big blind ante format.
Players who advance from their respective flights will return to the felt Sunday for Day 2 action at noon. They'll play down to nine players Sunday evening. The final nine come back Monday to play under the bright lights of the nationally televised final table. Spectators are welcome to come sit in the live studio audience or watch from home on a 30-minute delay at twitch.tv/hptpoker.
