The most prestigious tournament series in live poker, in fact the whole of poker, has begun in Las Vegas.
I'll try update this thread with news and results.
The first event, the Casino Employees tournament ($550 buy-in), has been done and dusted.
The winner was Chiab Seachoa, who picked up $70k, besting 731 other players.

Event number two is under way, the $1,500 NO Limit holdem event. This usually gets a great turn out, with over 2,000 players hitting day one, the numbers should be good.
A couple of big names already up among the chipleaders, Eli Elezra is 2nd and Brandon Cantu is 4th.
