The Poker Room at Thunder Valley is THE place to be for Monday Night Football. Not only is the game on tonight, but you can win your share of $5,000 being given away to cash game players during the game.

Be at a table at the start of the game, start of the third quarter and end of the game and your table could have $100 added to the pot for that hand as a Rack Attack.

Be playing live at the start of the second quarter and you could win $100. If you're playing live at the start of the fourth quarter, you could win $200, and if you're here playing live at 10 p.m. you could win $500 in a Hail Mary Hot Seat drawing.

So .. what are you waiting for? Plan now to be here by kickoff at 5:30 p.m. and play through the game. Hey, the Bears vs. Jets ain't a bad game to watch as it is, add the cash prizes and there's only ONE place to be tonight ... right here in the Poker Room at Thunder Valley.

12 SHALL SURVIVE

Today's $175 Survivor tourney drew 121 players, meaning 12 players are each going to receive $1,500.
Why?
Because a Survivor event awards an equal payout to each person finishing in the top 10-percent of the field. Make it down to 12 players and you've won $1,500. The player in 13th place receives a cash payout of $150.
Cards just went in the air as well for a step-satellite to the HPT Main Event, an $85 buyin where 1-in-5 players receive a seat in a $360 satellite to the Main Event. In a $360 Main Event satty, 1-in-5 earn a Main Event seat for this weekend. The next $360 Main Event satty takes place at 8 p.m. tonight.

2 SATTYS TODAY FOR HPT MAIN

Win your way in to the Heartland Poker Tour Main Event for a fraction of the $1,650 entry fee by playing one of two satellites today.

The 1 p.m. $85 satellite is a step tourney, earning 1-in-5 entrants a seat in a $360 satellite to the Main Event. Players start with 4,000 in chips and play 15-minute levels.

The 8 p.m. $360 satellite awards a Main Event seats to one-in-five players in the satellite. Players start with 10,000 chips and play 30-minute levels

BE THE SURVIVOR TODAY

Event 3 of the Players Championship Series is running now, the $175 Survivor, where the top 10 percent of the field all cash for $1,500. Late registration is open through the end of the first break, after Level 4.

At 1 p.m. today is a step-satellite towards the Heartland Poker Tour Main Event this weekend. One-in-5 players in this $85 satellite earn a seat in a $360 satellite to the $1,650 Main Event. A $360 satellite straight in to the Main Event runs at 8 p.m., where 1-in-5 players earn a Main Event seat.

THE TITLE GOES TO LOPEZ

Well, that didn't last long.
Just a few hands into the heads-up match between Jeff Wakamiya and Benjamin Lopez, we have an all-in and a call.
Wakamiya shows A8 and Lopez shows A3.
The flop almost closes things out with two 3's out there, but an 8 on the turn gives Wakamiya two outs. The river, though, is a blank and we have a winner.
Jef Wakamiya takes second place, earning $39,000, his biggest payday ever,
Benjamin Lopez, Jr., who said he hardly ever plays big tournaments, and satellited in for just $55, has earned $56,000, including a $1,700 Card Player Cruise for his efforts.
