Thursday, September 13th: Omaha Action, Super High Hands, And The Introduction Of The "Post Registration Bounty"

ICYMI: Yesterday's tournament schedule kicked off (at 11:00am) with an $80 No Limit Hold'em event, which carried a $2,500 guarantee.  After eight levels of open registration, the field would officially close with (26) entries, and prize pool of $2,500 (after optional add-ons were included in the number).  The action would end with a six-way deal, which saw Arnold Cohen (West Palm Beach, FL) top the deal.  Official results from the chop are listed below:

Tournaments: The day's tournament schedule begins with one of the most popular recurring events, which happens to be of the non-no limit hold'em variety.  The $200 Limit Omaha 8B (Hi/Lo) event gets underway at 11:00am, and is structured with 14,000 unit starting stacks, and levels that last (30) minutes.  Registration is open through Level 8, with this same structure being introduced last week, and players raving about the deep play offered.

The 6:00pm time slot hosts the inaugural running of the $150 No Limit Hold'em "Post Registration Bounty," a tournament that players have circled since the month's schedule was released.  The tournament is structured with 14,000 unit starting stacks, and levels that last (20) minutes.  Registration is open through Level 8, and is a crucial point in the event, because it will determine how much the bounties are worth.  Each entry from the tournament will set aside $40 towards the "bounty pool," and once registration is over, the total pool will be divided by the players remaining.  That will then be the amount players earn for every "post registration" elimination.

Promotions: From (9:00am-10:00am), the high hand will award $150 every (30) minutes.  The high hands will then transition from 10:00am-12:00am (midnight), with the opportunity to win $400 every (30) minutes.  During that period, the promotion sees tournament players eligible each half-hour for $100 high hands, 2/2 limit hold'em players eligible for $200 high hands, 2/4 limit hold'em players eligible for $300 high hands, and all other raked games (1/2-5/10 NLH, 4/8 Omaha 8B, 6/12 O.E., etc.) eligible for $400 high hands.  From 12:00am-9:00am, players are eligible for $100 high hands every hour.

It should also be noted that players are able to win the high hand using only one card in their hand.  The payouts for those that use one card are different than the standard numbers listed above, and can be found (full listing of one-card payouts on flyers in the poker room).

Tuesday, September 11th: Erik Christensen Tops The $360 NLH ($100,000 GTD), As "Win, Place, Show" High Hands Headline Tuesday's Schedule

ICYMI: At 12:00pm yesterday afternoon, (25) players returned for Day 2 of the $360 No Limit Hold'em ($100,000 GTD), ready to play down to a winner.  The action started off pretty quick, as Preecha Taepakdee eliminated Barton Taylor (25th place) on the second hand of the day, flopping bottom set against top pair.  After that, it took an hour to lose just four more players, with the final two tables reached after ninety-minutes of play.

As the field got closer to reached the final table, we saw numerous notables add a deep Isle Poker tournament run to their resumes.  Richard Wetter, Leticia Galinis, Anthony Mucci, Engelberth Valera, and Rodney Moret-Rojas, all earned cashes worth over $1,425.  Preecha Taepakdee would then be the first player eliminated from the "unofficial final table" (10th place - $2,010), and would be followed by Matthew Bretzfield (Kings Park, NY), who continued his solid tournament run (which has lasted for over a month now, winning $2,310 for his 9th place finish).  Even though she started Day 2 with the second smallest stack, Edina Pantinchin (Miami Beach, FL) was able to "short stack" her way to the final table, departing just moments after Bretzfield, and collecting $2,370 for her 8th place finish.  After Shannon Mau's (Miami, FL) elimination in 7th place ($3,155), the final table would lose David Inselberg (Boca Raton, FL), who came into Day 2 with the overall chip lead (6th place - $3,705).  The final five would be battling it out for some healthy payouts, but there would be no deal-making until heads-up play was reached, with Erik Christensen (Miami, FL) and Zachary Milchman (Boca Raton, FL) chopping up the top two prizes.  Erik held the chip lead at the time of the deal, and would be awarded first place money, along with the top spot in the official results (which are posted below):
  1. Erik Christensen (Miami, FL) $20,498
  2. Zachary Milchman (Boca Raton, FL) $18,367
  3. Tracy Scala (Village Of Golf, FL) $9,515
  4. Richard Leger (Lighthouse Point, FL) $5,790
  5. Eric Kolodny (Sunny Isles, FL) $4,470
  6. David Inselberg (Boca Raton, FL) $3,705
  7. Shannon Mau (Miami, FL) $3,155
  8. Edina Pantinchin (Miami Beach, FL) $2,730
  9. Matthew Bretzfield (Kings Park, NY) $2,310
Tournaments: The day's tournament schedule begins at 11:00am, with an $80 No Limit Hold'em event, that boasts a $2,500 guaranteed prize pool.  The tournament is structured with 12,000 unit starting stacks, levels that last (20) minutes, and registration that is open through Level 8.  At registration's close, players will have the opportunity to purchase an "add-on," receiving 10,000 units for $20.  This tournament is also eligible for the "free seats" to this Friday's $80 No Limit Hold'em ($3,000 GTD).  Any player that makes quads or better, will receive entry in the tournament just listed.

At 6:00pm, we see the same $80 No Limit Hold'em tournament, carrying the same exact structure (with the exception of the eligibility for "free seats").

Promotions: Tuesday's promotion schedule starts with the ever-popular Full House Early Bird, with the first (25) full houses awarded up to $60.  The amount won depends on which game is being played, with 2/2 Limit Hold'em players earning $20 (for each eligible full house), 2/4 Limit Hold'em players earning $40 (for each eligible full house), and those playing 1/2 through 5/10 No Limit Hold'em, 3/6 Limit Hold'em,. and 8/16 O.E. earning $60 (for each eligible full house).

The standard high hand promotion begins at 10:00am, with the opportunity to win $400 every (30) minutes.  During that time period, the promotion sees tournament players eligible for the high hand, which would be worth $100.  2/2 Limit Hold'em players are eligible to win $200, 2/4 Limit Hold'em players are eligible to win $300, while all other raked games are eligible for $400 high hands.
