PCA 2013: Getting stuck into the side events, plus $1k redraw

The winner of the PCA Main Event will pocket $1,859,000. That's a big time pay day but if you don't make the final table in the main (which 979 of the field will not) then there are plenty of side events in which you can rake it in. And if you don't believe us, listen to Jonathan Duhamel below...













You can check out who has won what and for how much by looking at the festival results page. So far winners have included Marcel Luske, Adrienne Rowsome and Mike Telker. In one of our two day events - event #19: $1,100 NLHE - Shannon Shorr carries the overnight chip lead with 38 players remaining from a 380-man strong field. A large $92,120 sits up top for the winner, $49,400 for second. To see which tournaments are running click on through to the PCA schedule.
