First 500 entries receive a free commemorative chip

There are three starting flights left for players to enter the Main Event at Golden Gates Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado. Flight 1A drew 76 players with 18 of them bagging for Sunday's Day 2 affair. This beautiful Rocky Mountain property has been home to some of the largest events in HPT history, with Main Event prize pools often surpassing the million dollar mark. This special summer event has a discounted rate with a buy-in of just $1,100 compared to the usual $1,650. Still, last summer there were over 500 entries and a total prize pool of more than half a million dollars.

This weekend's tournament is HPT's 200th Main Event since the tour's inception in 2005. To celebrate that landmark, the first 500 entries will receive a complimentary poker chip as a keepsake (pictured).

Updates by Hold 'Em Radio will be posted throughout the weekend at HPTupdates.c. Tune in to twitch.tv/hptpoker Monday at 12:00 p.m. MST for the final table livestream with commentary by our very own Jaymz Larson and guests.
