The quiet still of the Choctaw Grand Theater is soon to be replaced by hundreds of players taking their shot in the Poker Night in America $1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event. 80 players have already moved on to Sunday’s Day 2 with dozens more set to join them at the conclusion of this flight.
The spacious tournament area will be pushed to its limits today with over 450 players needed to hit the guarantee along with satellites running all the way through the end of late registration.
Similar to the first two starting flights, all players will start with 20,000 in chips and play 18 40-minute levels. Late registration and unlimited re-entry are open through the start of Level 10, which will hit at approximately 7:30 pm. Breaks will take place every three levels with the 60-minute dinner break set to hit at 6:30 pm. A full structure sheet can be found here.
It has been an exciting couple of days during the Day 1 flights and today should be no different. The Choctaw blog will be here for all of today as we take another step toward Monday’s final table.
