Event 48: Satellite Hopefuls

$200 + $30 Championship Qualifier

Also taking place in the event center today are Championship Event qualifiers (aka satellites).

The $200 + $30 version is underway in the back.  Approximately 1 in 18 players will win a seat into the main event for day 1B.

One of those hopefuls is Chris Racioppo.  Chris won a contest on WFAN Sports Radio in New York, garnering a seat in this satellite. 

 Chris Racioppo

He's hoping to win his way into the main event so that he can then win some life-changing money (last year Dwyte Pilgrim won over $733,000).  If he does, he's going to tell his bosses at SHI International, where he's a sales manager, where they can stick that job.
