AUTUMN CLASSIC: Lepro leads Main Event field into day 2

After four day one flights, the field has been finalised for day two of the $550 Autumn Classic Main Event in the SKYCITY Poker Zone at Adelaide Casino.

Under the innovative format of this tournament, players could enter as many flights as they like. Ross Lepro and Joe Sandaev survived more than one flight, meaning they will take their largest stack through to day two and ‘cash out’ their extra stack for $1100.

In addition, all players who return for day two are assured a minimum payout of $1510 so Lepro and Sandaev, who lead the field into day two, will actually cash twice in the tournament! Triple Chance NLHE winner Long Tran and Jonathan Karamalikis will also return to the felt today.

Across the four flights, there were 177 buy-ins creating a total prizepool of $88,500. The winner will take home $22,210. Play starts at noon today. Later today (2.15pm), a $235 No Limit Hold’em Terminator event is also scheduled.
