The @HPT Championships Starts in 1 Week

15 Days, $850,000 in Guarantees, an opening weekend $425 Monolith with $250,000 guaranteed and the feature event, the Heartland Poker Tour Season XII Championship $2500 buyin - the LARGEST buyin the the 12-year history of the HPT with a $500,000 Guarantee ... we are ready for huge turnouts and great competitions Oct. 11-25 for the entire HPT Season XII Championship Series.

Come out early, starting Oct. 11-12 to satellite your way in to one of our biggest fields each year, our $425 Monolith with a $250,000 Guarantee. Monolith kicks off a week from today with Day 1A. There's a Day 1B on Friday morning the 14th, Day 1C Friday evening and Day 1D on Saturday the 15th.

We're guaranteeing at least 65, yes SIXTY-FIVE seats into the $2500 buyin, $500,000 GTD HPT Season XII Championship Main Event via satellites throughout the week.

The Main Event has three Day 1's, using the full weekend with Day 1A on Friday the 22nd, Day 1B on Saturday the 23rd and a new twist, adding Day 1C on Sunday the 24th. Each flight features one-hour levels from the very beginning and 30,000 starting stacks.

Each Main Event Day 1 is a 1+1, one entry and one re-entry per player per flight. Also, this is a best stack forward event so players who bag-a-stack on Day 1A or 1B can try to bag a bigger stack in a later flight to make Day 2.

With late registration open for six levels each Day 1 flight, players entering at the end of the registration period begin with 60 BB, a huge value for those entering late or using their re-entry.

Add in a PLO, an Omaha 8OB, a HORSE, 6-max, NLHE Bounty tourney and more for a full 15 days of tournament and satellite action.

There's even a closing event $550 buyin Action 8, playing eight-handed and antes are in play from the very first hand.

See you next week for the HPT Season XII Championships at Thunder Valley's Poker Room.
