This weekend's $1,650 Main Event at Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City features two starting flights. The first just got underway and the second flight is tomorrow at noon.
Players today will play 15 full levels or down to 13%, whichever comes first. They'll all start with 30k in chips and blinds are set at 40 minute levels. Players who advance from today's flight will join those who make it through tomorrow on Sunday at noon for Day 2. On Sunday, levels will be 60 minutes each and we'll play down to the final nine players. The final table will be Monday. Public spectators are welcome to come sit in on the televised set Monday as we film for TV.
This is a big blind ante tournament. The big blind ante will come into play in the fourth level of the day. Breaks will come every three levels today. Players will take a one-hour dinner break after Level 9 today at 8:30. When they return at 9:30, registration is closed for the day.
Though the field is fairly small at the start of the day, there are already quite a few familiar faces at the tables. Ryan Gregor, Roger Campbell, Ed Sebesta and Ted Forshey to name a few. Stay tuned to HPTupdates.com throughout the day as we'll provide coverage from start to finish.
