The Philly Live! Poker Room will also host the $250 Road to Riches with a $150,000 guarantee as well as the $200 bounty event that will gesture a guarantee of $8,000.

$2,200 buy-in Philadelphia Poker Championship 

The event will take place at Rivers Casino Philadelphia between May 24-26 and it will feature a $2,200 buy-in Main Event and display a guarantee of $200,000.
