The APC $10,000 Main Event Invitation Only Tournament took place on Sunday, May 15th and Final Table on Sunday, May 22nd. This event was a 2-Day Tournament and gave away a $10,000 Seat into the World Series of Poker Event in Las Vegas! It was live-streamed and it was awesome!
To qualify you had to be a 2022 Gold VIP Card Holder, and 197 players came out to play in the Main Event. The Venue at Friendship Springs in Flowery Branch was the perfect location to have such a large tournament! The Final Table took place in the home office and was live-streamed!
