Later this month, the Card Player Poker Tour is set to return to Ocean’s 11 Casino (near San Diego) for the ninth running of the CPPT Ocean’s 11 San Diego Classic main event. The tournament features a $250 buy-in and will run from April 25 – 28, with six starting flights available. There will be two starting flights per day from Apr. 25 – 27, with the first kicking off at 10:00 AM and the second at 6:00 PM.
Players in this event will also be able to take advantage of the popular Quantum Tournament structure and buy-in on day 2 for $1,500 on Sunday, Apr. 28 for day 2. Day 2 direct buy-in players will receive 100,000 in tournament chips, and can also pay a $30 optional staff add-on and receive another 20,000 in chips. The blinds will resume at 1,000-2,000 to start day 2. Players will be able to re-enter once before the second level on day 2.
The eight previous winners of this event are Barry Seidman, Shawn Busse, Robert DeAgazio, Barry Knowlton, Scott ‘Brian’ Blount, David McCaw and Matthew Welch. In January of 2019, Welch outlasted a field of 823 total entries to win $41,300.
