Final Starting Flight for the Main Event Begins at 11AM!


The Main Event has come to it’s final starting flight before all three fields merge for the first time on Day 2.

Yesterday’s flight brought in 356 total entries with just 32 players securing their seat in the Day 2 session. Both flights played all the way through the scheduled 17 levels with a combined 54 players waiting in the winds having bagged for Day 2 thus far.

The current chip leader after two flights is Bruce Volpe, whose 1,205,000 will be the high water mark that everyone is chasing and looking to surpass. However, that could all change today with numbers for the flight expected to be big meaning more chips in play an bigger bags possible.

The total number of entries pulled in by the Main Event so far is 582, bringing the total number contributed to the prize pool to $881,730, already close to meeting the guarantee with an entire starting flight remaining.

Here are the rest of the key details for Day 1B:

$1,700 buy-in / 40,000 starting chips (200 BB) 40-minute levels on Day 1, 60-minute levels on Day 2 and 3 (starting in Level 18) Registration and a single re-entry per opening flight are open until the start of Level 13 (approx. 8:30 p.m.) Players will receive a 15-minute break after every two hours of play. There will be a 60-minute dinner break after Level 9 (approx. 5:30 p.m.) Day 1c will halt play after the completion of Level 17 or when just 10% of the field remains, whichever comes first

Day 2 will get underway Sunday, March 24th at noon with all remaining players from all three flights merging.
