HPT-Shooting Star Main Event Kicks off in Minnesota

Registration open; Raymer playing two-day tourney

After a night of partying and after-partying with the Heartland Poker crew, pretty excited to be celebrating their fifth anniversary, I am reporting (barely a)live from the two-day $1100 main event at the Shooting Star Casino at Mahnomen, MN.  I’d rather be playing with @FossilMan, but my AK (er.. offsuit) short-stack jam didn’t hit vs 99 in a $250 Qualifier satellite.

Registration opened @ 2pm CT (noon Vegas-time).  Cards get in the air shortly @ 4pm CST/2pm LV.

Play starts with a chip stack of 15000, with blinds at 100-100.  Levels are 40 minutes.

Day 1 will play to the completion of 12 levels or after the bubble breaks, whichever comes first.  Day 2 will begin @ 10am CST/8am LV.  The final table will be televised.

Follow me on my cross-country poker road trip @scarlet_lv, with live-tweeting  from @HPTpokertour‘s Shooting Star Casino main event.

    Spent 3 days with HPT, just a blast!!! $5-60 games was popping, and Raymer was very friendly and didn’t turn down a conversation.
    We in the money, 1sf place is around $80000?
