Today's field will play through 15 full levels (or down to 13% of the field, whichever comes first). At that point, the remaining players will bag chips. Both flights will be combined for Day 2 action tomorrow.
There will be breaks every three levels this afternoon. After the ninth level, players gets a one-hour dinner break. When they return from that dinner break (at approximately 7:30) late registration will be closed.
At that point, we will tally total entries and prize pool numbers.
Good luck to all!
