$400 Monster Stack NLH (Re-Entry) $200,000 Guaranteed | Structure Level 4: 100/200 with a 200 ante Flight B Entries: 360
The $200,000 guarantee was long gone before the start of Flight B and the prize pool crossed the $300,000 mark before the first 90 minutes of the day were in the books. It’s ramping up to be another huge day in the Event Center.
We found a couple players with big final table appearance already in the series. Michael Tait cruised to the $600 Six-Handed final table and was unlucky to go out in sixth place. Massimo Dirienzo made the massive Double Stack final table and finished fifth out of 2,433 for a $60K pay day.
Today we roll out the second flight of the WSOP Circuit Monster Stack and there’s little drama over hitting the $200,000 guaranteed prize pool. With 574 entries in yesterday’s flight, only 33 more are needed today to make the mark and there will be that many registered before cards go in the air.
Now we’ll see how big they can make it.
They will start with 30,000 stacks and the first 24 levels last 30 minutes before increasing to 45 from Level 25 forward. Late registration is available until the start of Level 13 at 6pm following a 30-minute dinner break and they can re-enter as often as needed during that time.
The flight will come to an end once the field hits 8% or the end of Level 24, whichever comes first.

2020 WSOP Circuit – February Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, Florida Event 5 $600 Six-Handed NLH (Re-Entry) Entries: 352 Prize Pool: $181,280 February 10-11, 2020
WSOP Circuit Event 5 continued the trend of huge turnouts for the series when 352 entries showed up for the $400 Six-Handed NLH tournament. The short-handed game played down to a talented final table and South Florid’s Arkadiy Tsinis conquered it to walk away with his fifth WSOP Circuit ring.
Our players combined to create a prize pool worth $181,820 and they made the money late on Day 2 with 53 getting paid.
Of those 352 entries, only 25 advanced to Day 2 and Tsinis was sixth coming back and he rode his stack to the final table. He stack was on a rollercoaster once they were down to seven players but he caught aces late to eliminate Michael Rossitto in fourth place.
Tsinis began heads up play by doubling up against chip leader Scott Dobbs on the first hand and he never looked back. He rivered a wheel on the last hand to take the title along with $39,527.
This is the fifth WSOP Circuit ring for Tsinis but he only owns his first. The rest he gifted to friends and family and he plans to do that with this one as well. Also, Tsinis isn’t resting on his laurels and immediately went the registration desk to register for the ongoing $1,125 Pot Limit Omaha game.
Congratulations to Arkadiy and thanks again to everyone for the great showing.
