Don't Miss the Seneca Niagara Summer Slam Starting Today 0001

The Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel Summer Slam series kicks off today in Niagara Falls, NY. PokerNews will be providing live coverage of several events at the stop, culminating with the $100,000 guaranteed Main Event. The seven-event series will run starting today through August 3.

The first event of the Summer Slam is the $200 No-Limit Hold'em Turbo Deepstack at 11 a.m., and the PokerNews Live Reporting team will be there.

The $100,000 guaranteed Main Event garners a buy-in of $600 and will take place from August 1-3. Last year, Buffalo native Andy Spears took down the Summer Slam Main Event for $23,000, and it is anticipated that Spears is back in the mix this year following a summer that saw him cash in three World Series of Poker events.

Also playing is Jonathan Dimmig, winner of the WSOP's Millionaire Maker for $1.3 million. Dimmig sat down with PokerNews recently to talk about his return home and his big score in Las Vegas.

As always, PokerNews will be activating the MyStack App, allowing players to directly update their chip counts in the PokerNews blog using their iPhone or Android phone.
