ICYMI: The Tuesday morning "Monster Stack" ($100 No Limit Hold'em) saw registration close with a prize pool of $3,003, with a field comprised of (39) entries.  When the payouts were posted, players would see that five spots were reaching the money, with first place taking home $1,232.  Once the money bubble burst, the remaining five players agreed to a deal, with Arthur Rodriguez (Pembroke Pines, FL) declared the tournament's winner.

The evening event (6:00pm) on Tuesday was a $60 No Limit Hold'em ($8,000 GTD), which happens to be the last tournament of the week with a guarantee (with the postponement of the "September $150,000).  The field was made up of (152) total entries, and after the optional add-ons were included into the prize pool, the official number close at exactly $8,000.  Nineteen players reached the money in the tournament, with action pausing once the final table was reached, and players agreeing to a chop.  Max Martin (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) earned the lion's share of the deal, taking home $1,241 for first place.

Tournaments: Today was supposed to host the opening pair of flights for the "September $150,000," but with the tournament's cancellation, a pair of "recurring" events have been inserted in their place.  The afternoon tournament (11:00am) will be the $100 No Limit Hold'em "Monster Stack," an event that has been seeing fields between (30-40) entries on a consistent basis.  The tournament offers a structure with starting stacks of 25,000 units, and levels of (20) minutes throughout the event.

The "Monster Stack" will be followed at 6:00pm, by a $75 No Limit Hold'em event.  The tournament is similar to the event that usually runs on Friday nights, with 15,000 unit starting stacks, and levels lasting (20) over the course of the evening.

Promotions: The high hand promotions are in full swing from the moment the doors open this morning, with the "Turbo High Hands" ($100 awarded every 10 minutes from 9:00am-12:00pm, with rollovers) distributing money at a rapid pace.  The transition at 12:00pm begins the "Spin To Win" promotion, which has awarded hundreds of thousands since it's inception.  It's the high hand promotion that makes all others jealous, and affords those that have a qualifying high hand (awarded every 30 minutes), an opportunity to spin the ever-popular "Money Wheel."  The total amount awarded...along with hourly breakdown, will be published tomorrow afternoon, here on the blog.
