Sunday Recap: Players blaze the tables in first High Five weekend
If you noticed a lot of smoke coming from the tables at Americas Cardroom yesterday, you can blame the High Five Tournament Series.
It wasn’t just the $420,000 GTD High Five Main Event and 4:20pm ET “courtesy break” that saw players roll in the green. Across the board, we had a number of big prize pools.
In case you were too busy to rail, here’s your recap for Sunday, September 15th.
