This weekend's $1,100 Main Event is at The Meadows Racetrack and Casino just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The event features three starting flights. Cards fly at 2pm on Thursday. Play begins at noon on Friday and Saturday.
Players take their seats with 30,000 in chips and 40 minute levels. This tournament features a big blind ante format. Late registration is available until the start of Level 10 each day. Each flight will play 15 full levels or until 13% of the field remains, whichever comes first.
On Sunday, all players who have advanced through their respective flights will return to the felt at noon for another full day at the tables. Action comes to a hault Sunday evening when we reach the final nine players. Those nine come back Monday to play under the bright lights at the nationally televised final table. Public spectators are welcome to sit in on the taping of the final table. Friends, family, and fans are encouraged to watch the final table play out Monday through a delayed stream with hole cards at twitch.tv/hptpoker.
