2017 Card Player Poker Tour Main Event Starts Saturday At The Bicycle Casino – CardPlayer.com

The Card Player Poker Tour has returned to the legendary Bicycle Hotel & Casino In Bell Gardens, California for the latest CPPT main event. The $400,000 guaranteed $1,100 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament kicks off on Saturday, October 14 at noon local time for the first of three starting flights. Players will be competing for the money and the title, as well as a spot for the winner on the cover of an upcoming issue of Card Player magazine.
