Players from Wyoming, West Virginia, and all places nationwide will soon descend on Indiana turf as the battle for the coveted Player of The Year title continues. This tournament is open to the playing public with an anticipated 6 figure 1st place pay-out. Better yet, you can get there, (there, meaning the main event) for less than a hundred dollars through qualifying events, beginning October 25th. Filled with plenty of NLH affordable buy-in’s including something different like Event #4, an Ante Only Tournament with a $150 buy-in and like Event #9, a $150 Ship It Tournament. The Main Event is a $1500+$150 Flight A, B, C, Friday November 1st and 2nd. The Main Event final table plays Monday, November 4th and it will be televised. So be prepared to call in sick to work, and hope your boss doesn’t watch televised poker. The schedule is so extensive you should go to belterracasino. com and print it out.
