PokerNews to Live Report at the Colorado Poker Championship Main Event Sept. 23-27
Live poker tournament action rolls on at Bally's Black Hawk West this month, as the Bally's Colorado Poker Championship hits the home stretch. The 26-event series began Sept. 8, and culminates in a pair of big tournaments in the final week of the festival, both of which will be live reported by PokerNews.
The $1,450 Colorado Poker Championship Main Event runs Sept. 23-27 and offers three starting flights, including Day 1A (Thursday, Sept. 23), Day 1B (Friday, Sept. 24) and Day 1C (Saturday, Sept. 25).
All surviving players from that trio of Day 1 flights come back to Bally's Black Hawk West for Day 2 on Sunday, Sept. 26. The tournament plays to a nine-handed final table on Day 2, and those nine players return on Monday, Sept. 27, and play until a champion is crowned.

The big-money tournaments don't end with the Main Event, as the Colorado Poker Championship finishes with the $3,000 High Roller on Wednesday, Sept. 29.
The High Roller is scheduled as a one-day event, with 40,000 starting chips and 40-minute levels. Re-entry into the High Roller is available through the beginning of Level 10.
