The 2016 Chicago Poker Classic at the Horseshoe Hammond opened its doors for Event #1 – $360 No Limit Hold’em, which will fill the entire opening weekend. Six starting flights kick off at noon and 5 pm respectively starting Thursday through Saturday.

Event #1 of the 2015 CPC drew 2,296 entries, created a $684,208 prizepool and Zal Irani walked away the winner with six-figures stuffed in his pockets. Anthony Parille, Michael Hahn and Edward Nassif finished second, third and fourth respectively.

Each flight the event will pay out 11% of the field (rounded down) and players will bag up for Day 2 on Sunday when the field reaches 8% (rounded down). Then the survivors from all six flights resume for Day 2 on Sunday at noon. Each player that makes the final table receives a CPC Main Event seat – an added $2,000 value.
