Since April 19, the Chad Brown Challenge has been taking place at the Choctaw Resort in Durant, Oklahoma. This past weekend, the series culminated with a $2,000 Main Event, which is now down to a final table and will be live streamed to viewers around the world.
Over the course of two starting flights, the Main Event attracted 258 players, creating a prize pool of $475,494, and included some notable players — Chad Brown, Dennis Phillips, Layne Flack, Gavin Smith and Robert Williamson, though all failed to make the final table.
Some familiar players did make the final table. Both Seneca Easley and A.P. Phahurat have proven themselves on the World Series of Poker Circuit, while Andy Philachack and Jared Jaffe boast career earnings of $1.2 million and $674,000 respectively. They will begin battle for the top prize at 1200 CDT.
