The Final Starting Flight of the Main Event Gets Underway Today!


Today is the day! The final starting flight of the WSOP Circuit Hammond $1,700 Main Event begins today at 11:00am and with the weekend upon us and a six-figure payday up top, we expect the tournament room to be packed wall to wall with players looking to etch their name into WSOP Circuit history.

The tournament comes with a $1,000,000 guarantee, but with $745,380 already waiting in the prize pool and the largest starting day ready to put cards in the air, that $1,000,000 guarantee will be far surpassed when registration comes to a close.

 Cards fly at 11:00am with players scheduled to play through the completion of 17 levels or when just 16% of the field remains, whichever comes first. Players will not bag in the money as the bubble is expected to burst very early on Day 2. The prior two starting flights have both hit the 16% mark in Level 15 (3,000/6,000/6,000) with the 1b flight bagged with 36:09 remaining on the clock. If Flight 1c goes beyond that mark, the Day 2 flight will revert back to that time stamp to begin the Day 2 session.

The defending champion of this event is David Schonback who was able to take down the ring, $282,725 in prize money and a seat to last year’s Tournament of Champions which is an added BONUS that the eventual champion will again enjoy.

Here are the important details for this event:

40,000 in tournament chips 40-minute levels on Day 1, 60-minute levels on Day 2 and beyond One re-entry per flight until registration closes at the start of Level 13 Day 1 ends either at the end of Level 17 or when 16% of the field remains, whichever comes first Day 2:  Sunday, March 10th 3rd at 11am Day 3: Monday, March 11th at 12pm 60-minute dinner break at the end of Level 9
