If you build it, they will come and indeed, SugarHouse and their poker room did just that with a lofty $200,000 guarantee set for the Philadelphia Poker Classic. The guarantee was in question, to say the least, coming into the final starting flight but a sea of players looking to get in on the potential of a bonus prize pool instead pushed the total buy-ins to the exact total of $200,000.
There are three full levels of late registration remaining and a few more players are likely to jump in before the Day 1 cage closes. All players looking to enter tomorrow for Day 2 have until the start of Level 16 (3:30 pm) to do so and will receive 120,000 (40 big blinds) in exchange for their $2,100 buy-in. We are sure to see a few hopefuls try their Day 2 luck, with Phil Hellmuth already among those confirmed, and it will be interesting to see where the total prize pool nets out when all is said and done.
