The Seneca Fall Poker Classic returns to Niagara Falls, N.Y. in November, and once again PokerNews will be there to provide live coverage for each of the five events on the schedule. The annual series will run Nov. 1-9, highlighted by a two-day $1,000 Main Event which boasts a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The first two events on the 2014 Seneca Fall Poker Classic schedule will take place inside the Seneca Poker Room. Event #1, a $500 no-limit hold'em event, will kick off the festivities on Nov. 1. Event #2 is a $125 no-limit hold'em tournament with six separate starting flights spread across three days. All players who advance on Day 1 will return on Nov. 5 to play down to a champion.
Events #3-5 will then take place on the balcony of the Seneca Niagara Hotel and Casino, allowing players 18 and older to participate.
PokerNews will be on the floor providing live updates, chip counts, photos and more from each tournament. We will also be activating the MyStack App for all five events, allowing players to directly update their chip counts in the PokerNews blog using their iPhone or Android phone.
