Level 1 (25/50)
Total PNIA Main Event Entries: TBD
As the Choctaw Poker Fall Series winds down, another Choctaw main event is set to get underway. As part of the Poker Night in America circuit, a $1,000,000 guarantee has been set for this event that is sure to be far exceeded given the track record of previous Choctaw main events.
Play will start at 12:00 pm with all entrants receiving 20,000 in starting chips and 10 levels of late registration and unlimited re-entry. All Day 1 sessions will play 18 40-minute levels or until the flight is down to 12 percent of the field. In total, there will be three starting flights before Sunday’s Day 2 restart. And with satellites running until the last possible moment, there are plenty of opportunities to qualify for a reduced rate of the initial $1,000 buy-in.
The field will combine on Sunday for Day 2 at 12:00 pm and play down to a final table of five for Monday’s live stream final table as part of the CBS Sports show “The Final Table” which will air at a later date.
With play getting underway shortly, it remains to be seen how big today’s opening flight will get but if past Choctaw events are any indication, it will reach go a long way toward putting a big dent in the 1,000 players needed to hit the guarantee.The Choctaw blog will be tracking that growth and bringing you player features for some of the bigger names in today’s field.
