The $500,000 Freeroll Poker Tournament was held August 1113 and boasted nearly 400 players. On day 1, half the field played down to 100 players, and on day 2 they did the same. The top 200 players were in the money and went on to compete for the top prize of $150,000.

The final-table finishers:

1. JP Withrow
2. Ken Selby
3. Sam Chung
4. Michael Chaplan
5. Pablo Carabello
6. Steven Pohl
7. Robert Delcher
8. Robert Moyers
9. Justin Hall
10. David Zanella
