They will return after that to play towards the money, final table, and Event 1 champion.
If you are still in the tournament and want to make your dinner plans, there are plenty of options throughout the property. Check the link below and find what you like.

Tony Ruberto was a recent entry and someone we don’t usually see until the major tournaments hit the schedule. The poker pro put his name on the WPT Champions Cup back in 2011 and earned his first WSOP Circuit ring in Hollywood during their 2017 series.

It was no surprise that Martin Ryan was in his seat for the first hand of the first tournament of the series. He’s had great Coco success in the past including two of his nine WSOP Circuit rings coming here in 2018.
Ryan’s win in the September 2018 series paved his way to capture the Casino Championship for a seat in the WSOP Global Casino Championship. While he didn’t win a tournament during our last series in February, his two runner-up finishes were enough to give him the Casino Championship for the second series in a row.
