Day 1C of the WSOP-C Playground Main Event brought out a huge field of players that made a total of 777 entries in this flight. Before play concluded, 164 players fired a second bullet at Day 1C, which helped put nearly 39 million in chips in play. There were nearly 300 players ready and waiting for the start of play this afternoon, and they were joined by a steady stream of new players and re-entries that continued all the way to the final level of play. One popular option was to take a shortcut through the satellite route by taking shots at the series of $110 flips that put many players into the Main Event this afternoon.
The chip lead changed hands several times, and the leading stacks stayed relatively close throughout the flight. Unlike other Day 1s no player jumped out ahead of the pack to establish an insurmountable lead, however, several players maintained stacks that were consistently more than double the chip average. When play concluded George Chow bagged the chip lead with 411,100 in chips. To see the combined Day 1 results, click here.
Day 2A runs Friday at noon, and Day 2B gets underway on Saturday at noon. Players can still enter either flight, as late registration and re-entries will be available until the beginning of level 13 around 2:15pm. The beginning of each flight will be action-packed, as players rush in for their last chance at part of the $2,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. This year’s WSOP-C Playground Main Event winner not only walks away with the cash (and ring), but also an entry into the first WSOP-C event happening in Mexico! The WSOP-C Monterrey takes places from October 11 – 21, 2019 at the Jubilee Casino in Monterrey Mexico.
