A Million is the Target on Day 1B of Thunder Valley WSOP Circuit Main Event
After a record-breaking Day 1A that saw the $500,000 guarantee already eclipsed, a seven figure prizepool is a very real possibility, as it has been for the last three Thunder Valley Circuit Main Events.
The 1,000,000 chip mark is also the goal of players looking to advance to Day 2 as Brendon Herrick nearly hit that mark in Friday’s opening flight with his chip leading bag of 997,000.
The action continues at 11 a.m. PT for the second of two opening flights in this $1,700 Main Event. As with Day 1A, players will have a single re-entry available to them until registration closes at the start of Level 13, which will be at approximately 8:45 p.m.
The final 15% of Saturday’s field will join the 51 players who made it through Day 1A for a noon in-the-money restart on Sunday for Day 2.
40-minute levels are on the docket again Saturday with 15-minute breaks every three levels and a 75-minute dinner break following Level 9 which will hit at about 5:30 pm PT.
