    Arizona State Poker Championship begins later today 9am PST

    3 day 1s Fri-Sun and then Day 2 Mon and Final Table on Tuesday. Slated Guarantee is over 1Mil this time. The Following pros are confirmed to be be playing (meaning the Casino free rolled them and probably comped their stay as well). Tournament will be right down the road from me here in Scottsdale at Talking Stick Resort which has the biggest Poker room in AZ. PokerBrat is the highlight again this year (it was reported the Indians paid him 25k to appear apparent unknown of any specific deal this year yet). Chainsaw Kessler normally plays but appears he's in Chicago for an HPT event this weekend instead.

    Im assuming that there are 3 day ones? Where it says "play continues" that is kind of inaccurate if there are actually just three different day ones.
    It's hilarious that we as a society think everyone can be a dr, a lawyer, an engineer. Some people are just fucking stupid. Why can't we just accept that?

    Is this the same casino that took money out of the prizepool to pay for Hellmuth's appearance fee last year?

    FYI, Talking Stick has some of the softest 8/16 and 20/40 limit hold'em games in the West. Don't know about the quality of the tourney or no limit play however.

    NLHE is pretty soft technically its not No Limit its Spread Limit but the Top is 100bbs (IE 1/3 is $300) it basically plays as No Limit and yes its pretty loose. Things get better between Sept-Mar/April as the snowbirds come in from Canada and such..

    The bigger tourneys are still a fair amount of dead money. The daily tourney that's 11am is a bit of a donkfest/shovefest because it plays like an online turbo blinds double pretty much every 20mins, you pretty much have to take the deal appreciation for extra chips to have a shot.

    They have an intriguing new Thurs night tourney its $200 BI however if you finish in the top 10% to cash you're guaranteed $1600 with the remaining becomes winner take all for 1st.
