Yesterday's flight here in Kansas City had 107 total entries, with 17 advancing. We've already hit the century mark today with just over seven hours of registration left.
HPT Tournament Director Jeremy Smith has finished his pre-tournament announcements on rules, breaks, etc. and cards are in the air.
This is the second and final flight of the $1,650 Main Event at Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City in Western Missouri. Yesterday's flight saw 107 total entries, 17 of which bagged chips and advanced. Click HERE to see a full list of players who bagged Flight A.
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!
