The MILLIONS North America will continue to pick up speed this afternoon, with another $150 + $15 turbo re-entry satellite for the Montreal Open. Today’s satellite kicks off at noon and guarantees at least five seats to the Montreal Open. Late registration (and unlimited re-entries) will be available until the beginning of the seventh level of play at 1:45pm.
This afternoon’s flight will be followed by another $150 + $15 turbo re-entry satellite this evening at 8:00pm that guarantees at least 10 seats. The full roster of satellites guarantees at least 85 players will advance, but yesterday’s large turnout let the early satellites set a pace that is well ahead of the guaranteed amount.
Players came out in droves yesterday, allowing a total of 14 players to advance between the two satellites. The target event, the $1,000 + $100 Montreal Open begins on Friday, May 17 at 12:00pm, and the satellite fields will only get larger as we approach the event. Guaranteeing at least $1,154,500 in prizes, the Montreal Open is one of three MILLIONS events with a 7-figure guaranteed prize pool. The guarantee represents $1,000,000 in cash and 15 $10,000 + $300 seats to the Main Event!
Players are already beginning to make their way into the tournament hall- it’s shaping up to be another huge satellite field! Good luck to all!
