Final Flight of WSOP Circuit Horseshoe Hammond Draws Over 1,000 Entrants

As many as 220 hopefuls from all five starting flights advance into the final day of action

Flight E, the final one scheduled to be played within the $400 buy-in opening event of the 2018 WSOP Circuit Horseshoe Hammond stop, was completed Saturday at the host casino. More than 1,000 entrants flocked to the venue to register into the tournament and swell its overall field to 2,563.

Day 1E of the event thus drew its largest flight. Registration is now closed and there is just one day left to be played on which a champion will be determined. With the closure of registration into the event, we can now tell how much was generated in prize money and what portion of the prize pool the winner will walk out with.

The tournament featured a guaranteed prize pool of $777,777. The massive field of Flight E helped for the guarantee to be easily surpassed. The total amount of $845,790 was generated from the event’s five flights. The top 220 finishers are set to receive a share of the money, min-cashes starting from $849.

As for the winner, their lion’s share of the prize pool will amount to $124,385. In addition, they will also receive a gold ring from the series. It is yet to be seen whether a new member will join the WSOP Circuit gold ring winners club or the player who claims the opening event title will be someone with previous circuit victories.

Day 1E Highlights

A total of 1,011 entries registered into the tournament through Flight E on Saturday. They generated a prize pool of $333,630 to add to the overall one. As many as 19 levels were played as part of Day 1E and once those were completed, there were just 89 players to have survived through the day. They bagged and tagged for the night and will return to the home casino later today to merge with the hopefuls from the previous two days for one final day of action.

A total of 220 players will return to the host venue to battle it down to a champion. Action is set to resume today at 11 am local time at Horseshoe Hammond which will kindly host the WSOP Circuit for the next week or so. The plan is for a winner to be determined by the end of the day, but it is yet to be seen how action will unfold.

Daniel Kitzis bagged the largest stack at the end of Day 1E with 687,000 in chips. The player will thus enter Day 2 competition second in chips, with Day 1A’s David Larson being the one to top the overall chip counts chart. Larson bagged more than 700,000 at the end of Flight A.

The $400 opening event is one of two on the WSOP Circuit Horseshoe Hammond schedule to feature multiple starting flights, the other one being the $1,700 Main Event. That second tournament is scheduled to kick off on October 19 with the first of two starting flights and $1 million in guaranteed prize money.
