Day 1 of Event #6, The $10,000 + $300 High Roller, has just wrapped up for the day. The players started with 1,000,000 chips and played through eight 60 minute levels on eight handed tables. The tournament offers amazing value as there is a slow blind structure allowing for late entry, as well as re-entry, and the prize pool is a guaranteed $1,000,000!
Late registration is open right up to the start of Level 13 on Day 2, which is at 5:30pm on Friday, so there is plenty of time to jump into the action. There is expected to be a lot of new entries on Day 2, and there will most likely be many re-entries as well due to the great prize pool and relatively small field. This is one tournament that any serious tournament player does not want to miss. Day 2 starts tomorrow at 1:00pm, and Day 3 will wrap up the action on Saturday at 1:00pm.
There was a great turnout in today’s Day 1, with a total of 52 entries (including 14 re-entries). Some of the best names in the business mixed it up with many experienced amateur grinders who were all battling it out on the felt, and as the chips moved around, the lead changed throughout the day. At the end of play, 28 players bagged and tagged to return for Day 2 action. The top stack in play belongs to James Romero, who bagged 4,320,000.
Below are the stacks of each player who will be returning for Day 2 action.
