How can I play in a million dollar prize pool without having to go to Vegas for the WSOP or hit the WPT trail? How can a $30 buy-in get me over $300,000 for 1st place in a land-based casino? The Florida Poker Rooms have come up with an solution. It’s called the Florida Million II.
This tournament is split into two flights, with many day 1′s. There are seven participating poker rooms in Florida: Palm Beach Kennel Club, Daytona Beach Kennel Club, Mardi Gras, Derby Lane, Orange Park Kennel Club, Pensacola Greyhound Park, and Naples-Ft Myers Greyhound Track. These rooms may hold lower buy-in satellite tournaments to gain entry into the Florida Million II $500+50 tournament. Alternatively, you can buy-in directly for $500+50.
Each Day 1 is limited to a max of 150 players. The tournament structure is identical at each of the seven locations. Day 1 flights are played until 10% of the field remains. Once 90% of the players have been eliminated, the remaining 10 % are guaranteed to be in the money. Those advancing to the finals will have their identification verified and chips transferred to the host location.It’s similar to the November 9, as the players advancing have to wait to play out Day 2 and hopefully Day 3. The finals will be held at the Palm Beach Kennel Club located in West Palm Beach on December 11,2010.
Most of us in Florida live with in driving distance of more than one poker room offering a Day 1, so if at first you do not succeed try and try again. The Florida Million is not a freeze out! Re-entries to Day 1 is encouraged. There are over 35 Day 1’s being offered state wide. Visit the Florida Million website at http://flmillion.com/for current prize pool information and further details. Good Luck as you find your way to the nearest poker room offering a Day 1.
The first Florida Million tournament had 2,349 entrants with 235 making the money earlier this year.

I am taking some time off from traveling sooooooooo much. My granddaughter, Addyson, is two years old. It’s time for this Grandma to help create traditions for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. And, yes, she is the most beautiful toddler in the world.
My next planned poker trip will be in January. I will be playing the WPT Southern Poker Championship at the Beau Rivage Casino. The main event starts on January 24th with plenty of great preliminary events. Get more information at this link: http://www.worldpokertour.com.
I spent last week asking a good many people if they would be playing the Borgata’s Main Event. I told anyone who would listen the vital statics of this tournament:
· $3,500 total price
· 75 minute levels
· Blinds start 25/25?????
· 30K starting stack
· WPT televised event
· Great structure
· Two day ones
· $2 million guaranteed
If they are still listening when I get to the end of my list, I remind them that the $3,500 is the lowest entry fee for a WPT main event. At this low price there will be more first time main event players pulling together the money to play. I think the Borgata and WPT may owe me for all the free advertising.
I am on the plane to Atlantic City now. I will be playing ACT 1 and ACT 2 in hopes of winning my way into this awesome tournament. I am playing day 2b-Sunday. I am looking forward to seeing many of my fellow teammates at PPI. If you see me in the halls, please say Hello! Follow my action via Twitter.
Come join the fun!!!
