The 2016 Chicago Poker Classic rolls into Day 5 with just one event in the books – Jeff Guss won Event 1 for $103,270, Monday has two new events kicking off at noon and 5 pm and two restarts will crown champs.

Event 4: $250 No Limit Hold’em gets cards in the air at noon. The two-day event has three $2,000 CPC Main Event seats added to the prize pool. They’ll play 20 levels for until a final table of ten – whichever should happen first.

Event 2: $360 No Limit Hold’em has 18 players coming back at 1 pm to play for the $20,980 up top. A couple eliminations in the closing moments of the final level trimmed the field to the final two tables.
