Card Player Poker Tour Seneca Niagara Main Event Begins Thursday

The Card Player Poker Tour returned to Seneca Niagara Casino last week for the 2018 running of the casino’s popular Fall Poker Classic. The eight-event series sports $370,000 in guarantees, but the centerpiece of the whole affair is the $200,000 guaranteed CPPT $1,000 no-limit hold ’em main event

The event kicks off with the first of three starting flights beginning at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, with the second and third starting flights getting underway at 11 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 16-17. The tournament will wrap up with the final table on Monday, Nov. 19, with the winner taking home not only the top payout, but also a spot on a future cover of Card Player Magazine! In 2017 Guy Klass (pictured) defeated a field of 271 entries to win the $58,608.

Players looking to win their main event seat at a discount can take part in the numerous scheduled $145 qualifiers. The remaining satellites for this event will take place nightly from Sunday, Nov. 11 to Wednesday, Nov. 14, with three additional qualifiers on Friday, Nov. 16, with a last-chance morning qualifier running on Saturday, Nov. 17.

The Seneca Gaming and Entertainment poker room is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the first floor of the Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel. The 23-table room features 13 big screen televisions, free WiFi, free drinks, free parking, player rewards and spreads a large selection of hold’em, stud and Omaha games. The gaming floor offers roughly 4,000 slot machines, table games and keno.

The world-class gaming facility opened in 2002 as the result of an $80 million remodel of the Niagara Falls Convention and Civic Center into a full-service casino. The property also features fine dining, star-studded entertainment, a health and wellness spa and many other premium guest amenities.
