This weekend's $2,500 Championship Event at Ameristar East Chicago could be a big one. Twice this year the $1,650 Main Event came in just shy of a $1 million prize pool. Keep an eye on HPTupdates.com all weekend long to follow the action.
There are three starting flights for this Season XIV Championship Event. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Day 2 will be Monday and the nationally televised final table is scheduled for Tuesday at noon.
On top of the life-changing money at stake this weekend, this is the last event of the year for players to collect Player of the Year points. It's been a tight race for months and there are still quite a few players in the hunt. The POY champ will earn a $10,000 package to play in Main Events next season as well as hotel accommodations at six stops. Ossama Estafanous extended his point lead with a final table appearance in Daytona Beach, Florida a few weeks ago but there are a number of players within reach of him for the POY honors.
Dan Ross of Holdem Radio will be supplying tournament updates all weekend long at HPTupdates.com.
