Championship Day 1B: Freerolling

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 100/200/25 ante

Not everyone ponied up the $2,500 buy-in to get in the Championship this weekend. Some players won their way into the tournament via Qualifiers but one lucky soul is here on a complete freeroll.

Coconut Creek Casino had an online drawing to win a seat in the $1,000,000 Guaranteed event and name pulled from the virtual hat was local Earl S.

The West Palm Beach resident generally sticks to charity tournaments and some fun games but was looking forward to trying his hand at a big money tournament. He received his entry last night during a VIP party at Legends and was set to go this morning.

Unfortunately, the part-time grinder would not be able to run his freeroll into a six-digit payday as his Aces were cracked in early action.
