Event #8 $2,000 Main Event with $1,000,000 guarantee (one $10,000 WSOP seat added)
The defending Chicago Poker Classic Main Event event champion, Eddie Ochana (pictured), is among the Flight A field. Last year, Ochana defeated 745 players to earn a $217,810 first prize along with a seat in poker’s championship tournament — the $10,000 WSOP Main Event. His run at a second title is off to a level start as he sits pretty much at starting stack toward the end of Level 4.
The clock currently reads 270 players registered with late registration through the dinner break (until ~7:15 p.m.)
