Cherokee, N.C. (December 2, 2015) - Wednesday at Harrah's Cherokee features the beginning of the highly anticipated monster stack event. Last April this event was rolled out for the first time ever at Cherokee and it was a big hit. The tournament ended up drawing 703 entries, creating a $210,900 prizepool and awarding $43k to first place. This tournament begins at 11 a.m. with registration remaining open until 3:30 p.m.

This is a two-day event and has a $100,000 guaranteed prizepool. The main difference between this tournament and a standard $365 Circuit tournament is that in this one players start with twice as many chips. More on the tournament can be found below.
