There were a few ways to get into the Championship on the cheap, less than the $2,500 buy-in. Some players came via $285 Qualifiers and others went the $75 Step Satellite route to get here.

Eddie Uehara has them all topped.

Seminole Casino Coconut Creek held an online drawing with the winner getting a seat into the big $1,000,000 Guaranteed tournament. No cash needed, just the ability to enter your name and click a button.

Eddie Uehara was that person.

Casino staff pulled his name from the virtual bucket and he’s with us today grinding in 1C. We’ll keep an eye on his progress and hope he goes deep.
