Day 1B of Event #4 – $10,000 + $300 MILLIONS North America Main Event just got under way.
Loaded with a $5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool, this is THE event you don’t want to miss. The Main Event has only two Day 1’s. Last night’s Day 1A attracted 304 entries and saw 151 players qualify for Day 2. Sandy Lam bagged a whopping 6,84 million chips, and Manig Loeser threw 6,620,000 chips in his bag, roughly three times the average, so the bar is set pretty high for today’s contenders. The list of qualified players and their chip counts can be found here.
Players have until the beginning of level 5 (approximately 4:30pm) to register. Remember that if a player survived Day 1A and chooses to play Day 1B, their qualified stack from Day 1A will be forfeited with no possibility of recovery.
Players start with 1,000,000 chips and blinds increase every 60 minutes today. The tournament will stop after 10 levels and resume Thursday, May 23 at 12:00pm for Day 2. The rules and tournament structure can be found here.
And we’re off!
The ultimate prize!
