Main Event by the numbers


With registration closed, the numbers for the Main Event are now official and final.

The $1,700 Main Event is the flagship event of any stop and the numbers certainly support that fact here in Hammond.

The event brought in a total of 986 entries and generated an absolutely massive $1,493,790 prize pool, completely blowing away the guarantee/

Of those 986 entries, 148 players will go home with a payday with the min-cash being worth $2,556.

That’s not a bad payday, but it pales in comparison to the staggering top prize that will be worth $257,725 for one lucky player.

A six-figure payday is a massive accomplishment in the world of tournament POKER and here at Horseshoe Hammond, the top 3 finishers will all go home with six-figures. 

A count of the room tells us that 101 players currently remain. The field is scheduled to play through the completion of 17 levels or when just 80 players remain, meaning that we are getting close to bags here deep on Day 1c.
