CONGRATULATIONS AMJED SLEWA - MAIN EVENT III CHAMPION
The third installment of The Main Event kicked off at midday on Friday 21st February as 445 players from APL, 888PL and Pub Poker took to the Crown Poker Room to play for their share of over $450,000 in cash and prizes.
The tournament coincided with the launch of Full House Group's brand new partnership with charitable organisation Save Our Sons. Players were encouraged to donate 1% of their winnings to the charity and it was heartwarming to see most players who cashed dig deep and do their bit to help find a cure for Dechenne Muscualr Distrophy!
Day 1 ended at around 7pm Friday night with 178 players beginning day 2 on Saturday morning at 10:10am. There was no letting up with players busting at the felt, and we found ourselves in the cash before we knew it. All the details on the top 54 players are available on our Facebook page.
Day 2 concluded at 8pm when final table was announced and the remaining 10 players could go home and get a good rest in before the big day on Sunday.
